Eating Out: When eating out whether you are just running errands or have a dinner date or are traveling on the road, choose one of the restaurants listed on this great site, dinegreen.com where each restaurant listed is certified by the Green Restaurant Association. This association requires establishments to have full scale recycling programs in place.
Gift Bag Ideas: Buying gift bags can really get costly by the time you purchase all the personal touches that make your presentation special. It also can be very wasteful where a great deal of recyclable materials end up in the garbage can. Instead, why not try this. Use plain brown bags and decorate them with construction paper, ribbon, fabric, and whatever else you may have just lying around in your craft stations or office drawers, closets, etc. These not only are great fun to make but also make a very special and warm gift to give the recipient from your heart! And they are so much less expensive so you save money as well.
Green Traveling: There are many websites out there popping up that offer residents resources to start a carpool or to hook up with other people looking to conserve energy and are interested in finding a travel mate. One such website that I became aware of recently is in Oklahoma called The Green Traveler Website. They are very much willing to help point you in the right direction by suggesting some other links more relevant to your location. They also have great bus deals on the Ozone Alert Days as do many cities out there nowadays.
We hope these tips help you in your green journey or adventures and look forward to seeing you again.
