love to get all of your holiday shopping done in one place? Have
you had trouble finding eco-friendly gifts in mainstream stores?
Do you long to give conscious-style gifts? Kim makes her annual
holiday earth-friendly shopping picks from local uber department
store, Marshall Fields.
Kim demos corn bedding for hypo-allergenic night's z-z-z-z-z's. Check out
the new eco-drive watches from Citizen. Salivate over the personalized natural
food gift basket from M.F.'s Marketplace. Giving
green can be easy, fun and found in a mainstream department store!
gifts made locally to avoid transportation costs.
gifts made from natural materials which are better for air
i.e. bees wax candles.
gifts from a company that has a strong environmental
message i.e. Timberland clothes and shoes.
gifts made with recycled content.
gift baskets filled with natural and local ingredients.
gifts with solar power rather than batteries that need replacing
(Citizen's Eco-Drive watches).
cloth covered gift boxes or bags instead of wrapping paper.
left over contact paper or wallpaper to cover gift boxes
the wrap part of the gift ie: wrap in a t-shirt or scarf
computer generated gift certificates giving of your time or
service (i.e. baby sitting, window washing or dining)
saved bows from other gifts.
year's received holiday cards make great gift tags.
and raffia (ribbon made from a plant) adorn a box.
