Don’t call us a Scrooge!! Though we have been thinking about over-consumption and waste during this time of year: it’s a thing! But we would like to help spread the holiday cheer AND help rethink our gift giving strategies – so you can gift the people you love and the earth at the same time.
So, in true Home ReSource fashion, we are reusing last year’s Gift Giving Guide. In this article you will find many ways to rethink gifting, wrapping, decorating, and general holi-daying. It is the perfect year to give your old traditions a little zero waste makeover, find the perfect DIY gifts for those hard-to-buy-for-folks in your life, or give the gift of repair by bringing something in to our January fixit clinic!
And the holidays are a time to be grateful for all the things we do have. Did you know that when you express gratitude, it improves your mood and reduces anxiety? And it goes the other way: when you get gratitude coming your way, it also makes you feel happier.
And it turns out that we at Home ReSource have so much to be grateful for, and it’s all coming your way. At the top of our list is you, our community! Together, we are building the future we want to live in. Every time you shop at Home ReSource, donate materials, attend fixit clinics and other events, donate money to support and/or participate in our community education and work programs, spread the word about our work, take zero waste actions, and shop locally, you are engaging in a movement that makes our community more just, vibrant and sustainable for all. Thank you for all that you do.
Happy Holidays and we look forward to all we can do together in 2022!
