Market research studies have shown that people prefer experiences over tangible gifts this year. Surprising your family or friends with an experience they can enjoy is a great idea, not only because it is more sustainable, but it’s more personal as well. An afternoon tea, ice skating or gourmet dinner – whatever you think your loved one would enjoy the most. Our suggestion: choose an experience you would like to take part in as well and gift two tickets for the event! Websites like Eventbrite or Groupon are a great source of inspiration.

 

  1. Educate the little ones

Look for books written about climate awareness in children’s language. Read stories to your younger siblings, cousins, friends. Tell them ways they can make the world a better place!
