Give Experiences, Not Things, Chicago Style

Between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Day, it’s estimated that household waste increases by more than 25% and adds an additional 1 million tons of trash per week to our landfills.
 
A large part of that trash is from the gifts we give with the wrapping paper, bows, ribbons, boxes and cards.
 
Maybe you’re fresh out of ideas for Mom and Dad or maybe almost everyone you know is complaining about all the stuff they already have.
 
Think instead of the element of surprise when you gift your friends and families with an experience instead of something they have to find a home for.
 
Zero waste and wildly more memorable.
 
Check out these Chicago experiences…
