Here are some greener tips for holiday gifting - instead of buying stuff that will soon end up in landfill, provide someone with a local job by buying a service like a car tune-up, haircut or therapeutic massage; what about weekend getaways, tickets to plays, concerts or sporting events; admissions to art galleries, shows & museums; restaurant or grocery vouchers; memberships in naturalists clubs or conservation organizations; fees for classes in dance, exercise or marital arts? Or buy locally made consumables such as Ontario wine, honey, chocolates & cheeses. Good choices with a lot less garbage in 6 months.
