Christmas is a time for giving and a time for sharing – but there is a significant increase in the amount of rubbish that gets "thrown away" over the holidays.
Don't despair: It's easy to enjoy the festivities and do your bit for the environment this Christmas. A UK nonprofit, at Bristol, has a nifty interactive picture for hints and tips about how you can spend a greener Christmas.
They've partnered with over 25 non-profit groups and picked 50 great environmentally-friendly products that would make fantastic holiday gifts; with categories that include apparel & accessories, health & beauty, home, kids & pets, tasty stuff & tech, there's something for everyone on your list.
Once you're shopping cart is full, you can select a non-profit to benefit from your holiday spending; not only are you helping support the non-profit sector, but your patronage will benefit a company doing good work to spread sustainable good further into the mainstream.
