Forget Cyber Monday. Buy Green Gifts Today!

Green Gift Monday

If you're like most Americans, you'll spend at least a portion of your day at work today (Admit it.  I know you do it too!) scanning the Internet for holiday gifts.  It's Cyber Monday - one of the busiest shopping days of the year for online retailers. In fact, last year it's estimated that consumers spent $890 million online.  Yikes!

I'm all for fueling the economy, but do we have to do it with junk?  The folks at The Nature Conservancy say, "Heck no!"  And, they've come up with some great gifts ideas that are bound to spread joy and cheer this season without ending up in a landfill.  Check out their new site Green Gift Monday for ideas.

I'm partial to giving donations to friends and family members in lieu of gifts.  But if you've got to have something in your stocking, how about gifts made from recycled materials?  Buying experiences is another option.  One of the best gifts I ever received was a night out on the town with my hubby!

Another great way to "green" your holiday season is to send FREE e-cards instead of paper.  (Check out the options we offer at Care2.)  According to the U.S. Census Bureau, Americans send 1.9 billion Christmas cards each year.  I love beautiful cards too, but again it's important to think of the environmental cost of all that paper waste!

Check out The Nature Conservancy's Green Gift Monday Guide for more ideas on how to "green" your holiday season.

What's your best green gift?

Cheers!
Jocelyn

Go green or go home. I agree. Cyber Monday is overrated.
