- BUY EXPERIENCES. Feel like your home can't handle any more "stuff"? Then, why not try this green Christmas shopping tip instead: GIVE THE GIFT OF EXPERIENCES. How about movie passes or a membership to the zoo or local museum such as The South Shore Natural Science Center? Or a subscription to a local magazine like Edible South Shore. For the sports fan in the family, why not purchase tickets to a game? Not only are you not filling your home with unused items, your gift can be appreciated all year long! (And help save Mother Earth in the process.)
- BUY CERTIFIED.No matter what you decide to buy, be sure to look for "certified" items such as<strong></strong> Energy Star electronics/appliances, organic clothing, and Fair Trade/ Conflict Free jewelry when out doing your shopping. Also, be on the lookout for gifts made from sustainable or recycled materials and with little to no packaging whenever possible.
