Give green. Shop local. Grow our economy. Shrink our footprint.
Gift Idea List 2015: Give Green, Shop local. Grow our economy. Shrink our carbon footprint.
Members of the Davis Climate Action Team and concerned citizens created a list of suggestions for a greener holiday celebration a few years back. Each year we add to it! Get two for one this holiday season. Give a gift to your loved ones that’s also a gift to the planet.
Categories on the list include Shop Local, Give a Gift of Sustainable Living, Give Locally Grown and Locally Made Products, Give a Local Experience, Support a Local Non-Profit, and Give a Hand-Made or Recycled Gift. Click GiveGreenBuyLocal 2015 for the complete list.
Hints for adults: Look for gifts that help your loved ones reduce their carbon footprints, such as smart power strips for their entertainment/computer centers, LED light bulbs, a solar cooker, bicycle panniers, a basket of green cleaning supplies, something from Farmers Market, or a local experience.
Hints for kids: Give kids a personalized lunch box or insulated bag with reusable food containers and a stainless steel water bottle or thermos, a climb at Rocknasium, a class at Explorit, or an I-phone solar charger.
Shopping for responsible, green gifts can be rewarding and fun!
