eco gift fair: holiday green and furoshiki
A recent phenomenon is the eco holiday fairs popping up. The Give Green Fair in Portland this November just passed, but the Eco Gift Fair in Santa Monica is coming up this December 16th and 17th. The fair will offer a plethora of eco gifts in genres of eco clothing, chocolates, teas, jewelry, dvds, cds, books, skincare, accessories, etc. Its a great one stop shopping for the eco minded during the holidays. Remember though, if you shop eco-you must also wrap eco. Using reusable fabric in the Japanese tradition of furoshiki (below) or using a hemp gift wrap. There is a lovely diagram here you can follow.
