One Planet Inspired Gift Giving Guide - Zibi

One Planet Inspired Gift Giving Guide

This year, local and sustainable holiday shopping is more important than ever. Fortunately, the National Capital Region and Canada alike are chock-full of creative and innovative businesses. Inspired by One Planet Living’s 10 principles, we put together a list of gift ideas to help with your holiday shopping and, in turn, support local and Canadian entrepreneurs!


It all starts at Zibi

This Wednesday, December 16th, stop by Zibi’s One-day Holiday Pop-up. Habitude Design will have ready to gift holiday sets for everyone on your list, pick up your pre-ordered holiday meal from Au Pied de Cochon and make a donation to the Odawa Native Friendship Centre. See details here.
