What better way to treat a loved one then to buy them an experience with something they can take home and cherish afterwards. We love sustainable gift giving and giving someone an experience or a shared memory is one of the best ways to be environmentally friendly. We try our best to work with practitioners and independent business who use eco friendly, and often reclaimed and recycled materials.
