Americans throw away an additional 5 million tons of trash - 25% more than usual - between Thanksgiving and New Year's Eve.

One thoughtful gift is better than many wrapped packages of unwanted gifts. Draw names or share the cost of a gift with a relative or friend.

Gift Ideas:

Make your own gifts.

Look for gifts that are: durable; not over-packaged; energy efficient; wind-up, or use rechargeable batteries; reused (for example, antiques or used bikes); recyclable.

Give an experience such as tuition for an unusual class. For kids, consider giving an environmental excursion, like a whale-watching or camping trip.

Create a recipe book from the favorites you’ve collected.

Collect photos and put together a photo album.

Give a Membership.
