The art of sustainable gifting
With Valentine’s day here, love is in the air everywhere and so is the season of gifting. Valentine’s Day is a special occasion for celebrating love and affection with your significant other, family, or friends. However, with the rise of consumerism, it’s easy to get caught up in buying gifts that are not only expensive but also harmful to the environment. While these gifts are beautiful in their own sense, they do lack a deeper connotation. This is why sustainable gifting has become a popular trend in recent years. We at IVillage are firm believers in completing the circle of giving, where not a single agent of the circle is harmed but is always left better off.
But what is sustainable gifting?
Taking forward the idea of the circle of giving, we came up with the idea of “making earth your valentine” this season of gifting. The idea revolves around adopting the practice of sustainable gifting. Sustainable or conscious gifting tries to use resources as sparingly as possible, use natural, biodegradable & recyclable materials, upcycled items that have already been used and still exist somewhere in our world, support craftspeople, pay all workers fairly, and contribute back to society in a positive way. This way of gifting not only shows that you care about your loved one but that you care about the well being of the planet as well.
With the coming up of a number of businesses in the arena of sustainable gifting, the market has become wide open. With a thousand options to choose from, we are in a much better position than they were a few years back. The market has transformed in ways one couldn’t even imagine before. We at IVillage are driven by this idea of change and providing the highest quality and giving back to the society in the best possible ways. With our massive product catalogue ranging from handcrafted wallets, purses, diaries, wall hangings and clocks, bags and gift hampers we ensure that gifting has a joy both for the recipient and the giver. Even while packaging, we make it a point to deliver the best possible gift boxes which are also sustainable yet stylish and have their own personal touch.
This Valentine’s, go green
When you choose to take a step towards sustainable gifting this season, you not only receive the love of the one’s close to you but you also receive love from every person who worked behind the creation of that product, every product that you helped get recycled and every bit of the resources that you saved from getting depleted on earth!
