3 Earth Friendly Holiday Ideas


3 Ideas You Can Take From Pinecone Grove

1. Reduce. Reuse. Recycle.

The largest concern when it comes to mailing gifts is the impact on our environment. All Pinecone Grove Expedition Outfitter orders are shipped in packaging that is biodegradable or has been repurposed. This reduces landfill waste, energy consumption, and pollution.

How To Use This Idea: Turn all your cardboard food boxes (cereal boxes for example) inside out and reuse them as shipping boxes or decorate them for gifting in person.

2. A Thoughtful Gift.

Small letter sized orders from Pinecone Grove Expedition Outfitter are gifted with handmade Artist Trading Cards for you to enjoy. I make these in batches throughout the year. Parcel orders that are shipped domestically in the U.S. receive curated Eco Gift Bags filled with earth friendly items from other brands I think you’ll like.

How To Use This Idea: Make your own miniature art cards from and old card deck to send with your holiday cards or collect samples from some of your favorite earth conscious brands to fill stockings and gift boxes.

3. Protecting Wildlife.

For every Pinecone Grove Expedition Outfitter order, $2.50 goes toward a nature fund with the mission of preserving wildlife. After 10 orders I donate $50 to our chosen nature fund.

How To Use This Idea: Do you get a lot of holiday cards? Choose to set aside a certain amount per card you receive and donate it to your favorite wildlife or local animal shelter for the holidays.
