Simplifying the holidays doesn’t mean you have to stop giving (or receiving) gifts. It’s about seeking meaningful, wildlife-friendly alternatives that don’t harm the planet. And often these alternatives are more memorable, unique and economical than mass-produced items found in big box stores.
Decide what kind of holiday you want. For example, are you looking for more family-friendly activities, do you want to create more charitable or community-based traditions, or focus on centering sustainability in your celebrations? Once you know what you want to change, it’s easier to act.
