A gift is a small way of showing gratitude and for the environmentally conscious consumer, here are green gifts you can give to friends and family.
Gift a plant
A flowering plant can be a great gift for birthdays, anniversaries or simply for showing appreciation. You could also go a step further and gift seeds.
However, it’s a good idea to keep in mind the climate of the place so ask yourself these basic questions when deciding which bag of seeds to buy:
Which plants grow wild in the region?
What’s the average rainfall?
How warm or cold can it get?
If all goes well, who knows, next time you’re visiting, you’ll find a beautiful sapling (or tree) growing in the backyard.
