{Green Your Holiday} Give the Gift of Experience

We are greening our holidays and hope you will join us. Twice a week between now and the end of the year we'll give you tips for reducing your holiday carbon footprint. Why should we care? Because polar bears are facing a huge threat from all of us—global warming. Let's give bears a white holiday season by reducing our carbon footprint.

Instead of buying more stuff for your friends and family to deal with, consider the gift of experience or a donation this holiday season.

In our house, we love receiving art classes, ski passes, trips to the park, and donations to our favorite charities. The gift of time and experience is so much more valuable than "stuff" that eventually ends up in a landfill anyway. 

(Have you watched the Story of Stuff video? You may never want to buy anything again.) 

You can even make it easier on yourself by drawing names for gift giving—that way you don't have to spend on everyone.

And if you want to make a difference for polar bears this year, a donation to PBI or symbolic polar bear adoption will brighten anyone's holiday.
