Give the Gift of an Experience – Prices vary – Gifts cards usually mean less waste, and gives the recipient some options of their own. Give the gift of a night out, like at a restaurant that is known for serving local foods, theatre tickets, etc.
Car Wash Tickets – Prices vary – When I was growing up, I could always count on car wash certificates being in my stocking on Christmas morning (maybe they were a hint from my parents). According to E/The Environmental Magazine it is better to take your car to the car wash, rather than washing it at home. Look for one in your area that uses environmentally-friendly practices, or try a waterless option.
