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.
