Christmas is just around the corner, the turn of the year is not far away. If you are one of those people who can use the “quiet time” to pause, relax and “slow down”, please consider yourself lucky!
Many plans are currently being drawn up and good intentions are being made for the New Year. But first and foremost most of us think about getting presents. We often wonder desperately how we can bring joy to our loved ones. Unfortunately, this causes enormous stress and pre-Christmas hecticness for some bargain hunters. And this although “giving” is basically a fine project…
Don’t worry, “the green advertising agency” doesn’t want to buy you the most beautiful thing about Christmas – presents! spoil it, no! And yet: As an ecological advertising agency, we naturally also think of our environment at Christmas time. And: We act accordingly – all year round. Small steps can often have a big effect!
Simple tips for imaginative and sustainable gift packaging
//Avoid unnecessary plastic/multiple and mini-portion packaging (waste reduction starts with shopping!
//Use well preserved wrapping paper several times (after the smooth coating, wrapping paper usually looks like new again!)
//Wrap gifts in an envelope that everyone can use (e.g. beautiful tea towels, funny printed towels, etc.)
//Embellish gifts with matching utensils (e.g. a wooden cooking spoon is tied to a recipe book with a colourful bow, cosmetics are hidden in a beautiful washcloth etc.)
//If you need to buy gift wrapping paper, please choose ecological recycled paper
//Bring your own cloth bag for shopping (perhaps it was once used as packaging for a Christmas surprise? You even got the self-sewn bag from your elderly mother last year for your birthday? I bet the bag has a very special value and you would never ever trade it in for a plastic bag!
We look forward to seeing your gifts this year in a particularly creative and sustainable packaging! In addition to the “small steps with a big impact” (see above), we would like to express our sincere thanks today for the extremely pleasant and always cooperative cooperation in the past year!
We wish you and your loved ones a wonderful Christmas. Relax well and enjoy the holidays to the fullest. Start with us into a healthy and happy Year 2017!
Looking forward to further good cooperation.
