Eco gift giving comes in a variety of different forms, but generally it means giving something that is environmentally friendly. What if you could give someone a gift that was exactly what the person wanted and had so little impact on the environment that you probably could even measure it? It’s called a dream. To be more specific, it’s helping someone obtain their dream.
A new website has just started in Vancouver, BC that allows you to do just that. The site is called Dreambank.org and allows members to create a dream. Visitors and other members of the site can contribute funds to your dream. It’s pretty much a win-win situation. The person gets what they want and you don’t have to figure out what to get them. Since the “gift” is monetary, there is obviously no packing, shipping or wasted material. The only eco footprint for this type of gift is the impact of the website itself, which is rather minor compared to sending a parcel. The Dreambank website is also a great place to raise money for charities or non-profit organizations.
So if you would rather send money than a gift or perhaps you are a dreamer yourself, visit Dreambank.org and find a dreamer or create a dream of your very own.
