更有意義的節日禮物 A meaningful festival gift

禮物及派對的浪費

每年我們為慶祝不同節日、營造節日氣氛,浪費掉地球上很多資源。

環保觸覺於2009年及2011年的調查指出,「香港人一年丟棄近37萬份聖誕禮物,足以填滿9架雙層巴士」、「不合用的聖誕禮物閒置在家或丟棄,當中丟棄的以杯、相架、擺設、毛公仔及鎖匙扣等最多」、「31% 受訪者會閒置3年以上,12% 更表示不會處理閒置在家的禮物」。

除了禮物 (包括包裝) 及佈置,節日派對及飯局亦往往因預備過量食物造成嚴重浪費,同時使用即棄餐具亦對環境造成破壞。

過節要有意義

要過節過得有意義,不妨先停下來想想是否有必要購物禮物,再想想家人或朋友真正需要的是什麼。有些情況如公司或團體的硬性參與抽獎活動,則可考慮購買一些環保產品或光顧慈善組織、社企及本地小商店。

以下我們為大家搜羅了一些禮物,並按價格分類,以作參考。大家亦可直接到各慈善組織或相關網站選購更多心儀產品或參考《唔幫襯地產商的聖誕 2012》活動,選購一些小店或手作出品。

Gifts and Parties Waste 

Research conducted by Green Sense at 2009 and 2011 respectively shows that in Hong Kong, almost 370,000 pieces of christmas gift have been thrown away each year, which approximately can fill up 9 double-decker buses. In which, items like mugs, photo frames, furnishings, dolls and key chains are most ‘popular’. 31% of the respondents claimed their gifts will be idle for more than three years, 12% said they just left the gifts idle.

Apart from gifts (including the packages) and decorations, massive food waste always comes along with parties and dinners. Meanwhile, the use of disposable utensils creates unrecoverable environmental damages.

Meaningful Holiday

Think about what is the true meaning of holiday to you. Is it a must to send the gifts? Do the recipients really need them? Or, is there any other options, say, purchase from local designs, sending DIY products, green gifts or making donations to charity on behalf?

Go.Asia specially creates the GIFT IDEAS section to share our gifts pick. For your convenience and reference, we have categorised the gift ideas according to the price level, which are ” Gifts Below HK$ 200 ” , “Gifts HK$ 200 – 500 ” and “Gifts at HK$ 501 or above“. You may also refer to “Links” and “DIY Ideas“ for more inspirations.

Let’s have a meaningful & green holiday!
