GREEN GIFTS, CON'T

There is still time to shop the alternative markets here in Tallahassee today and next weekend. More on buying local at our Green Gift Guide.

Since you're by your computer, consider clicking on our local Second Harvest Food Bank page and making it one of your holiday donations through their secure on-line donation page. During the long winter break, as well as any time during the year, teens (and adults) looking for volunteer hours are always welcome to provide product donation sorts, help with special events or assist in the office.

A great tip from the
Sierra Club is to give a gift the encourages the green habits of fledgling do-it-yourselfers. A set of knitting needles and some yarn or a bike tool plus lessons about how to use them are great gifts that don't cost much, but are useful long after the end of December. Besides, knowing how to knit a scarf to keep warm while turning down the thermostat or how to fix a bike tire can save money, not to mention carbon emissions.
