Ideas for greening the holidays

-A A +A
By The Staff

The holiday season is upon us and this year, more than ever, people are wondering how to deck the halls with GREEN ideas.

At PEEC we have brainstormed our favorite green gifts and come up with a list to share.

1. Handmade gifts are always treasured.

Make a book of an historic trip or recipes that your family loved when you were little. Aspen Copies can help you make a calendar with family photos for each month. UPEX can help you laminate favorite photos to attach to your purse or luggage.

Home-made food goodies are unbeatable – jam, holiday bread, cookies for the tree and then the tummy, anything to help the busy cook keep everyone well fed.

If you want to get funky with your hand-made gifts (your friends and family will love you for this!) there are literally thousands of great ideas available online.

To get started check out www.purlbee.com, www.instructables.com and sewmamasew.com/blog2. If you're not a crafter and don’t intend to become one this holiday season, you can still give lovely handmade gifts. Shop the Art Center at Fuller Lodge for a wonderful variety of locally crafted objects.
