Gift Something Green

18 November 2009

This Saturday is the annual Green Gifts Fair at the Midtown Global Market!  It’s an amazing event, with over 70 vendors selling different types of gifts.  Some items you might find could be creative journals made out of elephant dung (don’t worry, it’s cleansed first), or gorgeous hand-knit scarves.  There are fair trade and organic food type gifts as well.

Throwing a party for the holidays?  You can also learn about green holiday decorating, wrapping, food and party ideas, and homemade gifts.  And of course, there will be food – low carbon holiday food samples, yum yum.  If you like to save money, and who doesn’t, DoItGreen! suggests that you

bring your own cloth shopping bags, reusable coffee mug for $1 coffee at Mapps Coffee & Tea in the market, and silverware and cloth napkins to reduce waste if you eat in the market (they only serve styrofoam and plastic!). Also consider biking, busing or carpooling to the event for a free gift.

Sounds good to me! And if that’s not enough, there is an eco fashion show and music.  Come to the Green Gifts Fair and support local and fair trade artisans and find unique gifts and treats.  See you there!
