Just because we’re celebrating friends and family, doesn’t mean it should come at the expense of Mother Nature
by Aaron Kok
The year-end parties are sometimes known as the “season of over-consumption”, and perhaps it is well-deserved. With all the unnecessary packaging that goes into the presents, the food wastage, and the Christmas lights that stay on throughout the night, all this merrymaking comes at the expense of our planet. To help you undo some of the damage, here are some nature-loving presents to consider. Now ditch the packaging, because it’s the gesture that counts.
“With our planet facing ecological and environmental challenges, luxury to me is being able to enjoy nature. There’s so much beauty on our planet, I am thankful for all that nature is giving us as I stand in awe of its beauty and wonder. We should all endeavour to preserve and conserve this gift from Mother Gaia, keeping initiatives to save our planet close to our heart.”
