[LISTEN] A list of sustainable gifts for festive season

In the sustainable feature, writer at Twyg Emma Jones-Phillipson chats about her ultimate anti-gift guide.

Jones-Phillipson says that a hierarchy of decluttering should be discussed in the gift guide.

Jones-Phillipson says that certain ideologies have been created when it comes to not giving gifts.

She adds that if someone doesnt give out gifts, it sets a precedent of not caring which is not always the case.

We want to encourage people to be more conscious and mindful of your gift giving.
