Weekend green tips

OKIEDOKIE, here is the weekend in one post.

green gifts for grads

Send the grads in your life out into the real world with an easy-on-the-earth gift. Consider an organic cotton dress shirt for internships or job interviews, shares of stock in a socially responsible company, or, if you know where they’ll be setting up house, a membership in a local food co-op, and a tote for bringing the groceries home.

stoop at nothing

This is the year for a garage it stoop sale – whisk through the house and garage and set aside everything that you don’t use, but someone else could.

and finally,

one man’s trash

Give – and get- all kinds of goodies at a center that collects naterials for the arts. From fabric to paint to cloth to doll parts, you never know what you’ll find, and they’ll take almost anything.

get going:



it is poor form to eat from one’s own waste paper bin? OK screw “poor form.” Is it tacky? Now, NOT the PUT ON THE STREET GARBAGE BIN, the one under your desk, where the last bit of sweet potato crisps just called your name…they were on top.

I am NOT saying that I did that. well, I did, but I am not saying it!
