Achieving Zero Waste requires new thinking about the way we buy, use, and dispose of everyday items, including how we give gifts! Instead of buying brand new, choose to purchase preloved items that come with their own histories, or repair those items you already love and want to keep from the landfill. You can also choose to give experiences as gifts instead of things. The possibilities are endless with [re]Made, [re]Pair and [re]Share.
