So, you’re at a holiday party and are taking part in the Secret Santa gift exchange. Wrapping paper is flying everywhere as people open their gifts. Anticipating a practical or fun gift, you open yours and look….it’s a battery-operated singing fish that hangs on the wall! As you put on your phoniest smile ever and silently curse the person who could have given this to you, you’re figuring out the next person you could pass this on to.
Passing on unwanted gifts can save you money and resources and reduce the amount of waste headed for landfills. Below is the link to a Newsweek article that talks more about re-gifting and its environmental benefits: http://www.newsweek.com/id/174311?gt1=43002
Tell us the worst gift you ever received and gave away. (Clearly, it was to someone you didn’t like!)
