Green style guru Danny Seo has been featuring tips from his book Simply Green Giving on his website, and this one in particular really caught my eye.
A perfect gift for any green thumb: take two identical terra cotta pots and fill them with seasonal bulbs they can plant in the Spring. Invert the second terra cotta pot on top and secure with string or ribbon. It’s a gift that gives itself and there’s little waste since the terra cotta pots are also a gift, too!
Danny points out that gift wrap, cards, and ribbon equal about 25 percent of the trash thrown away in the months of December and January, which is pretty substantial! To find out other tips for green gift wrapping, check out Danny's post.
