Feng Shui meaning wind and water is a 3,000-year-old Chinese practice. The Chinese use it to adapt a person’s home, business, and environment with positive energy flow. They believe that if you have positive energy and if you send out positive energy to those around you, that you will receive positive energy back.
Years ago, while running my own pre-school, one of my parents would give me quite “the gift” at the end of each year. Her son was mildly autistic and developmentally delayed, so he was quite the handful. She always dropped him off early and was always 10 minutes late. I never charged her a late fee. Come holiday time she would proudly had me her gift. One year she gave me an obvious recycled box of very dusty Extreme Incense. Another year I received catsup/mustard/mayo packets with a package of cocktail napkins. The third year I received two single packets of hot chocolate and a pack of microwave popcorn.

It is indeed a great idea to give eco friendly items that also contribute to the cause of nature. These items can be used again and are also not harmful to environment. You can give them for any occasion. Be it a birthday, wedding or anniversary. They last long and Herbal Potpourri make a lasting impression. Many a times, the focus is on how expensive a gift is. When compared to eco friendly gifts, they are long lasting and also recyclable.
