In this season of giving it can be difficult to remember our “green” intentions.

Here are easy ideas for gift-giving and celebrations.

  • Eco-Friendly Gifts: Reusable totes, mugs, thermos, are gifts that take care of the planet.
  • Homemade items:  Cookies, bread, jam, and other goodies are welcome gifts.
  • Plants – either for indoors or outside – add to the environment.
  • Event Gifts create no waste.  Movie, concert, or sport event tickets are welcome.
  • Restaurant Gift Certificates.  Enough said.
  • IOU Gift to offer your skills are great:  babysit, clean up, mow, rake, or more
  • Send online cards, instead of paper printed ones.
  • Reuse old cards.  Cut out the picture and paste to a blank card.
  • Create a “video postcard” to send.
