One of our goals for 2021 is to Continue to Grow Sustainability Efforts. This November, we are reflecting on our commitment to reducing waste. Our staff will be participating all month long in weekly challenges so that we can incorporate the cultivation of environmental stewardship (Fair Trade Federation Principle #8) into our daily lives. This week we’re focused on gifting well so that your gifts last for years to come.
A gift is a physical token memorializing a moment, experience, or feeling. How do we sustainably express our gratitude and care to our loved ones this holiday season? Here’s some things to consider when shopping for gifts this holiday season.
Don’t Be Afraid To Give A Piece of Yourself
Make it personal. The moments you have shared with this person are definitely worth celebrating. Inside jokes, little moments, shared milestones, trips together, these memories are gifts waiting to be wrapped. Creating a time capsule in a keepsake box or tote can really make a person feel cherished.
Know Your Person
If all seems lost, be open. Ask your person, “Hey I would really love to give you something like ____ for the holiday season. Would that be something you would enjoy?” You don’t have to be super specific but communication will ensure the what you get will be enjoyed for a long time. Remember, open and honest friendships are a gift all in itself.
No Waste November
Do you know someone who likes super soft clothes that make you feel good AND makes a positive impact? We’ve got you covered. Shop GOEX Apparel through the month of November and save 20% on all rib garments. That’s right! Every garment crafted from remnant fabric that would otherwise be tossed aside, is on sale. Shopping triblend? Our triblend rib garments actually divert waste from landfills twice – first the plastic bottles used in the fabric and then the rib fabric again when we use the remnants. No waste November. No waste ever.
