Think about gift packaging

Matt Berger Nov 26, 2010

Gifts represent another opportunity to reduce your holiday carbon footprint. Select items with minimal packaging, and give gifts of service or membership that don’t require wrapping (like a Southface membership), or a donation to one of the many worthy causes that desperately need our continued help to support their important work.
