Shop Green and Local
Gift Ideas List: Give Green, Shop local. Grow our economy. Shrink our carbon footprint. Members of the Davis Climate Action Team, concerned citizens and Cool Davis created a list of suggestions for a greener holiday celebration. Get two for one this holiday season. Give a gift to your loved ones that’s also a gift to the planet.

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!
Move your money to a credit union or ethical bank! Credit unions usually donate to projects that strengthen local communities, and ethical banks make a commitment to support good causes. Green America Bank For Good BankTrack and Mighty Deposits are all great resources to find ethical banks!
