Plastic Free Gift Ideas

We know how hard it is to keep sustainability in mind as you are shopping for gifts so we put together a quick plastic free gift guide for this holiday season and because they are smaller brands, we don’t think they will be caught in the supply chain lags. It’s great to share the gift of sustainability and increase the amount of people that are thoughtfully consuming.
