Warm up your fingertips, it’s Cyber Monday — the biggest online shopping day of the year. But it’s also Green Gift Monday — a campaign launched last year by our friends at the Nature Conservancy to encourage more meaningful and responsible holiday gift giving. And when it comes to giving — isn’t ‘meaningful’ the point anyway?
Consider these gift ideas from the Nature Conservancy:
DIY. You don’t have to be a professional glue-gunner to make your own gifts. A wreath made of recycled (read: too ugly to warrant closet space) neckties, a batch of homemade applesauce or soup can luminaries are thoughtful, personal and eco-awesome.
Charitable gifts. Your mother is impossible to buy for? So don’t. Instead, make a donation to a nonprofit (preferably one that’s near and dear to her) in her name.
Green goods. Surely there’s a kid on your list who would love a skateboard made from sustainable bamboo or colorful cloth dolls made from organic or reclaimed fabrics. And for the outdoor enthusiast, may we humbly suggest a new jacket or pair of boots — using environmentally-preferred materials — from our Earthkeepers Collection?
