Haribon Foundation is urging people to go “green” this Christmas season instead of splurging on gifts that can cause environmental woes.
“This holiday season, why not give gifts that also give back? That’s right! We’re talking about ‘going green’ this season. Give an eco-friendly gift and make a lasting impression not only on your loved ones but on the future generations,” the environmental institution said in a statement.
Haribon suggests the following gifts this Yuletide season, with all of them coming from the institution itself:
