Supply Chain Shortages

News outlets are already reporting that supply chain issues and further delays with mail delivery services (like the USPS) could have severe impacts on holiday shopping – and we’re only just starting October (2021). This is an *opportunity* to
a) shop small and locally (but obviously please be patient with your shop owners, as they’re likely already overworked and stretched thin under the current circumstances),
b) make homemade gifts!! and
c) re-think gifting as a whole.
See the Holiday & Gifting category for more, but gifting experiences or memories instead of goods tends to be more eco-conscious. That way, you won’t even need to deal with ordering early to beat the rush or stressing over delayed packages. Plus, your loved ones will love your gifts just as much, if not more!
