Positive Impact This Season with Conscious Gifts


-- Conscious Holdiay Tips & Ideas --


As promised, I'll continue to offer wonderful eco-conscious gift and celebration options for you to consider over the holidays - and for any upcoming holdiay season, be it a birthday or an office celebration. I'll probably continue this until mid/late-december, so keep dropping by for fun craft and other tips!

- As I mentioned before houseplants make wonderful gifts, but this holiday let's purchase a living, potted Christmas tree (it removes carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide, ammonia, ozone and nitrogen oxides). A living Xmas tree can be donated to individuals, the city, schools or parks when the season is over. Alternatively, plant it in your own yard for privacy, shade or erosion control.

- Dehydrated, canned or preserved foods - especially those you have grown - make excellent gifts. Alternatively look for locally produced jams and preserves. Frozen homemade meals are treasured gifts for time-suppressed or physically limited individuals.

- Brazil or cashew nuts are a wonderful, healthy gift option since they promote a living tropical forest, increasing its value while supporting local peoples and preventing the clearing of rainforests for soybean and cattle production.

- Books; i.e. Trash Talk which teaches how to save money by looking at waste as a resource – by Dave and Lillian Brummet.
