I challenge you to gift experiences instead of things.  The average American family home has 25% more waste this time of year. All of the packaging, boxes, and wrapping paper is excessive. I remember it taking two weeks to recycle all of the boxes and to throw away all of the wrapping paper last yea

The average American family home has 25% more waste this time of year. All of the packaging, boxes, and wrapping paper is excessive. I remember it taking two weeks to recycle all of the boxes and to throw away all of the wrapping paper last year. And, we were trying to be minimal!
