  2. Eco-friendly and non-toxic gifts that have little to no plastic parts
  3. Buy eco-friendly and non-toxic gifts from companies that implement sustainable practices like using renewable energy sources to power their operations and reducing their overall carbon footprint.
  4. Eco-friendly and non-toxic gifts are made without chemicals that are harmful to our health and the health of our planet.
  5. Eco-friendly and non-toxic gifts can be used repeatedly, helping to reduce the amount of waste generated by disposable products.
