Additional Information

Those who give the gift of time instead of wasting time on material gifts strengthen their social relationship whilst contributing to climate protection. Requiring tons of resources and energy to produce, many goods come from Asian countries such as China. Hence, long transport routes result in additional CO2 emissions. Finally, take into account that material gifts if not appreciated often end up in the trash relatively quickly.  (The combustion of which causes CO2.) Therefore, before purchasing a gift, consider whether giving “time” would not be better.
