Let's Clean Up Gifting!
Here’s the deal, 75% of us admit to receiving gifts we don’t want and will never use—gifts that get stuffed in the back of a drawer or returned. That's a lot of physical and financial waste! Every year in the US, consumer returns create some 6 billion pounds of landfill waste. We want to change that!
When it comes to preventing waste around gifting, we know making a difference starts with what you choose to buy and gift in the first place. So we’re sharing 4 expert rules to follow to make sure you don’t buy a gift that has you blurting out “it can be returned” before it’s even opened. These tips will help you eliminate physical and financial waste and give more meaningful and cherished gifts.
THE GUIDE TO BETTER GIFTING:
1. GIVE WHAT THEY REALLY NEED:
This may sound like easy gifting marketing for us (frankly, it is) but we founded Soapply on the simple unifying fact that we all need soap!
2. DONATE IN THEIR NAME:

3. CURATE AN EXPERIENCE:
If you have the resources, give a once-in-a-lifetime trip, buy tickets to a show, or spoil them with a night of culinary indulgences that will create lasting memories.
4. REALLY LISTEN TO WHAT THEY WANT:
If you have the time and budget, make it an extra-special holiday and get the splurge they’ve been talking about or pass on a family heirloom they’ve always admired!
Happy washing and happy gifting!
