What if this year, we had a committed Christmas ? Christmas is an opportunity to share a good time in good company. And when we combine the pleasure of the moment with ecology and respect for the planet, we make the party even more beautiful. To spend a responsible Christmas , it goes through small gestures that make all the difference. Like choosing a tree from an FSC -certified forest or made from reusable wood, opting for a vegetarian and organic Christmas menu or choosing environmentally friendly gifts, for example. Your gifts can be Made in France and wrapped in reusable packaging or furoshikis, you just have to find the ideas that suit you best. You do not know where to start to know what gift to offer ? We help you a little with our best positive and ethical gift ideas. Let's go !
