You’ve all read invitations and announcements that said “in lieu of gifts, please make a donation to such-and-such charity.” No doubt, you’ve been to a party and seen the piles of gifts (plus wrapping paper) that seem like they are destined for a landfill rather than someone’s shelf of treasured keepsakes. And you’ve probably participated in a group gift for a special occasion (wedding, anniversary, retirement) or a serious need (support with medical bills or help after a disaster).
That’s where Inlu comes in: group gift-giving with an eye towards reducing waste.
My guests on the_browser are Monica Ostby and Jamaica Jenkins, co-founders of Inlu, the “eco-savvy group gift and event planning tool.” Of course, much more about Inlu at inlu.com, on Facebook, and on Twitter. The ladies behind Inlu stop by to talk about group gift-giving and the eco-inspiration behind the business.
