Gifts, who doesn't love them? Did you know that many presents we give to each other contribute to the problem of waste? Starting from pretty packaging (which unfortunately is not recyclable) to gifts themselves. Let's be honest, many of the gifts we receive are left in the dustbin or not used at all. Computers, phones, and tablets are constantly being updated and the old ones are discarded. Popular presents such as electronics through to jewellery require an enormous amount of energy and they create a lot of pollution.
The holiday season, birthdays or special occasions are one of the highest periods of wastefulness. Receiving presents is exciting, magical, but unfortunately wasteful!
