I
t’s the holiday season! Gift-giving time is upon us, andthere is a major shift takingplace around the world. We aremoving towards becoming moreresponsible as consumers, knowingthat by buying eco-friendly, organic,fair-trade and handmade items weare making decisions that greatlyimpact not just our earth, but thewell-being of our families and lovedones as well. We are also aware thatbuying products sold locally keepsour neighborhood economy strong.Our dollars are indeed a force forchange.With this in mind, I scoured theindependent shops of Oak Park,Forest Park and River Forest, aswell as Riverside and Brookfield,seeking out smart, stylish, andsustainable products to present to you in thisgift guide. What I found were uncommon andextraordinary gifts to enchant your loved onesand thoroughly satiate your green appetite:low-impact gifts with a high-impact punch when it comesto thoughtfulness, uniqueness,quality, and, of course, kind-ness to the environment. Butgifts with traits like these don’tnecessarily have to be expensive.In fact, several will surprise you.Whether you are looking for anunconventionally simple gift for himor perhaps a shimmering baublefor her, these sweet indulgences areguilt-free when it comes to the earth.A charming one-of-a-kind ring (weld-ed from antique French flatware),a nature-friendly flashlight (madeof beech wood, housing an energyefficient LED light bulb), or rock-star worthy gifts for the bibliophile(Mark Twain, anyone?), here are justsome of the possibilities.This holiday season, it is our hopethat we, as participants and patrons,will all come together in support of the local businesses that mean somuch to our communities and helpour neighborhoods thrive. We hopeshoppers will be seduced by clever designs,enticed by quality craftsmanship, and excitedby all that our independent neighborhood retail-ers have to offer. I hope you enjoy this inspiredselection of fine and fabulous giftideas.In peace,
Guilt-ree, green gifs or everyone
