Gift-giving makes the holiday season even more magical and festive. But the truth is: that many people deal with pre-holiday jitters from the pressure of finding the perfect gift to delight family and friends.

This should not dampen the holiday cheer. Gifts are not required to be new or expensive, and there are so many amazing gift items that are not just thoughtful and economical, but also eco-friendly.

Pepsi-Cola Products Philippines, Inc. highly supports sustainable practices during the holiday season. As part of its Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) commitment, PCPPI encourages Filipinos to practice a green lifestyle during the most wonderful time of the year.

With less than a month to go until Christmas, PCPPI shared some sustainable gift ideas worth considering this season:

Upcycled clothing

Instead of going to the mall to buy gifts, you might want to turn to your closet first. Your old clothes can go a long way with a little creativity. By upcycling clothes, you can help reduce clothing waste.

Transform old jeans into shorts or create a trendy top from a pre-loved shirt. This low-cost gift idea will surely convey your thoughtfulness, appreciation, and care for the receiver.

Making food with love

The options for oven-baked recipes are endless! Cookies, classic baked chicken, lasagna—You can never go wrong with these delightful eats.

Make sure to buy ingredients from stores that offer local, fresh, and healthy options. Learn more about farmers and fishermen who can bring their goods directly to your neighborhood. Spread happiness this season through scrumptious and nutritious food.

Digital gifts

No gift list, no problem. Digital presents or e-gifts are great gift ideas that will surely save holiday shoppers from the stress of searching for tangible presents. Ideas may range from online shopping vouchers, access to streaming platforms, or even greeting cards.

With limitless options online, these gifts are also easier to send to your long-distance friends and loved ones.

Reusable items

Influence your family and friends to embrace a more sustainable lifestyle by gifting them reusable items.

Some of the best items available include stainless straws or utensils, reusable glass containers, and tumblers. Using these items will help reduce plastic disposable waste.
