Holiday Gift Guide

Iím Dreaming of a Green Christmas Holiday Gift Guide

‘Tis the season for parties, presents, decorations and lights. It’s easy to get caught up in the hustle and bustle, but don’t turn a blind eye to the consumerism and wastefulness that this wonderful season can potentially bring. Here at, we will be making an effort to give more meaningful gifts and create less meaningless waste this year, and we’re here to help you do the same with our “I’m Dreaming of a Green Christmas: Holiday Gift Guide”.

On Tuesdays and Fridays, from now until Christmas, we will be posting a list (categorized by recipient and price range) of suggested gifts that are helping (or at least, not hurting) the earth. Perhaps they will be made from recycled materials, or are fair-trade, or the proceeds go to a charity… ultimately it is about giving, and giving back at the same time.

The list will be posted in the Holiday Gift Guide category, which you can get to by clicking on the button at the top of the far right column. And, if you want a sneak peak at the categories that will be covered, we will be sending it out this week to anyone who has signed up for the The Squeeze.

    This is a great idea. I always tell my family to just wrap my gifts in old newspapers, but they don’t listen. This is just one of many areas that can be frustrating come Christmas time to someone that wants to lessen their impact. Buying green gifts is pretty difficult, so usually I just stick to buying stuff at locally-owned stores (and the fair-trade place).

    Thanks for the comment Kevin. Most of our ideas will be available to purchase online, but if you can find something similar at a nearby locally-owned (or fair-trade) store, I definitely encourage you to get them there. Not only will it support the local economy, but it will save you, and the environment, the cost of shipping!
