Giving Green This Holiday Season

Well, it's that time of year again.  I make a list...I check it twice...and then I get a pit in my stomach. 

I love being with my family over the Holidays but what with Hanukkah and Christmas (not to mention a couple of December birthdays), I can never quite keep up.  Add to that the often depressing ritual of elbowing my way through a crowded shopping mall and then wondering if my gift choices were good, well, let's just say that that the Internet has been a blessing.

What's even better?  Green Gifts at NRDC!  In the words Tony Shalhoub, don't give crap this year, give a gift that matters--hope for wildlife and the special places they call home.


Seriously, these are wonderful alternative gifts that will make you and the ones you love feel better.  Plus, they come with their own beautiful e-card that you can customize and send in time for Hanukkah, Christmas or whatever.

My personal favorite, of course, is the "Den Defender" card, which lets you support our work to help polar bears around the world.  But you can also help save a whale from the Pebble Mine, a songbird from tar sands extraction, honey bees from harmful pesticides, and much more.

Whatever you choose, we deeply appreciate your support.
