Everyone deserves to live in a healthy and safe environment. That environment includes where you live, work, play, and pray. We reject and actively push back against racist rhetoric, actions, policies and institutional oppression that leads to state-sanctioned brutality, gun violence, and harm that again and again assaults communities, particularly communities of color. We are committed to working for justice and equity, and are in solidarity with social, racial, and environmental justice organizations to build community, understanding and honest dialogue to address the root causes of violence, harm and hate.

DIY Gifts

Tips & Resources

  • Because many companies don’t disclose ingredients, it can be hard to know what’s safe and what’s not. You can get around this by making your own gifts with safe, non-toxic ingredients.
  • Create a gift basket of homemade cleaning & personal products using WVE’s recipes! Get creative with old jars, ribbon and other scrapbooking supplies for a super cute (and practical) gift!
