Many of us have a large circle of friends, coworkers and family members that seems to grow wider each year. As our gift list grows longer, holiday time can bring with it a sense of environmental dread. The excess packaging, wrapping paper, bows, tape, and whatnots. The time spent searching for the perfect gift for folks who likely have just about everything they need or want. (How many re-giftable items do you receive each year?) Then you buy a couple of extra gifts just in case there is somebody you might have forgotten and you want to avoid that awkward moment of the one-sided gift exchange! Ugh.
Consider making this holiday season low impact and no-stress by joining the Blue Planet Run Holiday Gift of Water program.
Round up your friends this holiday and make a pact NOT to exchange gifts! Instead have a delicious potluck holiday gathering and give the gift of water! Over 1 billion people on the planet don’t have access to safe drinking water. You can become a water hero this season.
