giveaway – sustainable gifting


Finding the perfect thoughtful gift can be tricky enough as it is. But what if you’re trying to keep it green, too? The good news is that you don’t have to resort to regifting in order to minimise your carbon footprint (no one wants to be known as the family cheapskate) – author Michelle Mackintosh has done the hard yards for you. Her book Sustainable Gifting is brimming with eco-friendly pressie ideas and DIY projects that say “You’re the best!” and “No trees or critters were hurt in the making of this”. Michelle’s thunk up how-tos for handmade journals, floral wreaths and sweet treats, and there’s a whole section on sustainable wrapping, as well, with heaps of tutorials on upcyling boxes and making use of fabric wraps. If you’re in need of a little inspo for the Christmas season, swing by the win page. We’ve got five copies up for grabs.
