3 Ways Sustainable Gifts Save More Than the Environment

We love the holidays since, at their core, they’re all about generosity, goodwill, and spending time with family and friends. However, all those good tidings can unfortunately also cause stress, excess waste, and overspending—but the good news is that having a greener holiday can help alleviate all three. And with Purifico, sustainable luxury—in the form of a premium clean—is easy and accessible.

Beyond the positive impact on the environment, here are 3 additional benefits of reducing your ecological footprint.

  • Reduce trash, save cash: In many cases, being more sustainable can be economical. Take Christmas trees, which are 10-15% more expensive this year. Turns out that creative ways to replicate a tree are endless, including making one out of books, or a clever alternative like this wall-light version on our Instagram feed. Light an eco-friendly, fir-scented holiday candle and you’ve just saved a tree and a bunch of money. Wrapping-wise, if you’re feeling DIY, get creative with reusable bags or fabric instead of buying a new roll of paper, or create these cool bows made out of magazines (we totally got our craft on this season and made these, for real).
  • Saves your conscience so you can ditch the eco-guilt. Shop and celebrate with a clean conscience by focusing on small acts of good, not the wasteful. There will be trash, and plastic waste. Frivolous gifts will be purchased; plastic bows or ribbons will be used. IT’S O.K. Don’t waste energy feeling guilty about holiday waste; you’re not perfect, and no one else is, either. Instead, focus your emotional brainpower on celebrating a “small acts, big impact” mentality. Set green holiday goals using the ideas above and build on them next year.

Happy holidays, from all of us at Team Purifico!
