Your guide to sustainable gift giving

Posted on November 14, 2019

Feel good giving gifts this season that are more than just things -- they're carefully made, nature-inspired items that contribute to a more sustainable lifestyle. That's because shopping at The Nature Shop means giving a locally-made gift that's as special as the one you're giving it to, all while supporting environmental education.
