Eco-Friendly Gift Ideas for an Operation Christmas Child Shoebox 11
While shopping for your shoebox, I urge you to keep the planet in mind. Nearly every country where OCC has ever delivered struggles to safely dispose of its waste. Places like Ghana, the Philippines and Nigeria lack proper waste management infrastructure so garbage piles up and children living near the dump sites scavenge through hazardous trash to earn money. To lessen the environmental impact of your shoebox, look for minimal or biodegradable packaging and sustainable and ethically sourced materials.
