Gifting Green

by happy December 18, 2012

Are you a last-minute shopper? If you’re one of those people who leaves their holiday lists to the last possible second, we’ve got some great ideas to keep the tree filled with unique and eco-friendly presents this season!

Give the gift of health by purchasing a membership to a community or fitness center, or give ski, snowboard, or snowshoe passes.



Explore our backyard! When you purchase a membership to Grouse Mountain, you can snowshoe for free on Monday and Wednesday nights.

Nothing beats something that’s homemade and tastes delicious. Make sweet treats like cookies, chocolates, jams or jellies. Try this recipe for Chocolate Sandiwch Cookies with Peppermint Frosting (and feel free to drop some of these off to us while you’re at it).



Whether or not your budget is flexible, give someone pedal power with a new, upgraded or secondhand bike.


Hmmm, what to do with those old Levi’s…

Check out other eco-ways to wrap things up this year here.


Who knew mason jars could be so versatile?


Learn how else to make these into handmade gifts from Earth 911

What’s the best green present you’ve ever received or gifted? Tell us on Facebook and Twitter and we’ll spread the eco holiday love.

Don’t forget that you can drop off your light strands and other waste from the holidays to us any time besides Christmas and New Year’s Day!

Happy Holidays!
