A sustainable, "out-of-the-box" gift idea for this season

Not sure what to get family and friends this holiday season? Tired of the standard ‘neck-tie for dad/perfume for mom’ approach? Always waiting last minute to buy that “perfect” gift on the fly?

Don’t worry: you are not alone. As joyous as it may be, the holiday season can bring about unnecessary stress and a dizzying list of demands—parties, shopping, baking, cleaning and entertaining, just to name a few. Plus, it can feel wasteful at times, as presents will often be re-gifted, returned, or just left unused.

With the holidays right around the corner, close out 2018 by giving loved ones an “out-of-the-box” gift idea that will surely be meaningful and won't cause you to spend hours in a crowded mall.

Capital Institute, a non-partisan think tank (founded by former JPMorgan Managing Director John Fullerton) working to create a more just and sustainable way of life across the globe, has developed a Holiday Shopping Field Guide (here) with the help of many of its partnering organizations. From rebuilding the regenerative economy in the world’s oldest of Appalachia and actively fighting climate change, to supporting thriving ecosystems and establishing a regionally adapted, regenerative agroforestry system, there is no shortage of options to choose from in donating to or making a purchase on a loved one’s behalf. With just a simple click of a button, you can really make a difference around the globe.

Since the organization’s 2010 inception, Capital Institute has grounded its theory of regenerative economics in practice through its Field Guide to a Regenerative Economy, which has illuminated more than 50 projects and enterprises (through The Regenerative Communities Network) that demonstrate the emergence of regenerative economic activity in the real world as direct responses to the building pressures of the day.
