Green holiday tips from King County

Posted by Melissa Allison

King County's EcoConsumer site offers pointers for more environmentally friendly holiday gifts, including:

  • "Experience gifts" cut waste. And ask for discounts on gift certificates or tickets for restaurants, massages, plays, concerts, sports events and more.

  • Offer your time or skills. Make your own gift certificates for a special dinner, or to help around the house or in the garden.

  • Volunteer or donate in someone's name.

  • Plants make green, low-waste gifts, but choose sturdy plants that you know the recipient will be able to care for.
