With the holidays just around the corner, there are many mindful gift options to consider giving your loved ones that they can use for years to come. We have created a list of must-have stocking stuffers that keep the Mojave River Watershed pollution-free.
- Rechargeable Batteries –These batteries are great to have around because they won’t need to be replaced frequently and will minimize the amount of hazardous waste in your home.
- Reusable Bottle – It’s alarming how many plastic bottles we have trashed at clean-up events in the High Desert. Reusable stainless-steel bottles are great alternatives because they reduce waste and will keep your hot beverages toasty – which is extra nice during the chilly holiday season.
- Reusable Straws – Did you know that plastic straws are not easily recycled and take up to 200 years to degrade? Consider gifting reusable steel or glass straws that are easy to clean and won’t harm our precious Mojave Desert Wildlife.
- Eco-Friendly Phone Case - With smartphones evolving each year and new models entering the market, plastic phone cases are also in demand with each phone upgrade. However, consumers fail to realize that old plastic cases end up in landfills and produce plastic waste. This season consider gifting a biodegradable phone case for your loved ones.
