The holiday season is almost here, and the mad rush to purchase gifts is quickly approaching. Selecting a unique, memorable Christmas or Hanukkah gift (or gift for any other holiday) is a laborious process that involves driving to malls, researching gifts online, and sometimes slyly getting friends and family to reveal what they really want.
This holiday season, a record number of shoppers will use the internet to locate and purchase gifts for a wide-variety of reasons. With the economy still in a slump, buying gifts online has become a big money saver and helps preserve the environment at the same time.
You may ask: how does purchasing gifts online help preserve the environment? Well, there are numerous reasons:
1) Buying gifts online eliminates the need to physically drive to a mall, store, or other retail venue. By eliminating excess travel, carbon emissions are reduced and fuel is conserved.
2) Shipping companies have pre-defined routes that are created to efficiently and quickly deliver packages without backpedaling. Packages are methodically delivered ultimately reducing excess travel and excess fuel consumption.
3) Purchasing directly from an online source skips the middleman, so products go directly from the factory to your door. This decreases the amount of transportation/shipping needed.
4) Gifts can be purchased and sent directly to the recipient, gift-wrapped and all, which does away with traveling to buy gifts. Less travel means a minimized carbon footprint.
When looking to buy a gift this holiday, try browsing the internet before driving to a mall. Mother Earth will thank you.
