  • Season’s “Greenings”!  /  illuminateLA
    have always been my favorite gift to get I love them and people can t go wrong if that s what they give me I always have whomever gives it to me sign the inside cover so I can remember where it came from If you like to give books too get them used on Amazon or trade with friends This will mean you re recycling Just don t have them shipped overnight which is bad for the environment because of the oil and gas needed to rush it to you There are plenty of great books out there about green living green giving and how you can change your life in simple easy ways to live a more sustainable and earth friendly life The Urban Homestead Your Guide to Self sufficient Living in the Heart of the City and The Art of Urban Cycling Lessons from the Street are a great introduction to living a green life in the city 4 In my experience books are the perfect gift for your agent and manager but if that doesn t float your boat consider getting them something they can re use Portable utensils a personalized coffee mug or personalized canvas bags are gifts that will last a long time and your representatives will think of you every time they use them 5 Hand made gifts have become my specialty in the last few years and my husband and family still use them Knit an iPod case crochet a handbag make candles in tin cans create furniture out of found wood and metal and use recycled material in your artwork There are millions of ways to use materials that would otherwise end up in the landfill Sometimes I go to ReForm School a great store at 3902 Sunset Blvd in Silverlake to get gift ideas You can also buy books on making recycled gifts Gorgeous Gifts Use Recycled Materials to Make Cool Crafts costs 0 01 Garbage Land On the Secret Trail of Trash is an eye opening book about our trash and I highly recommend it 6 Whatever you buy try to make sure it s not wrapped in plastic and double and triple packed Leave your packaging in the store if you can and recycle all other materials at home About ten years ago in Germany people got so sick of packaging that they started leaving it behind in stores Eventually shop owners were so overwhelmed with paper and plastic wrapping that they asked manufacturers to tone it down It worked If you walk into a pharmacy in Germany these days you will see toothpaste tubes on the shelves without their usual paper box 7 Another great way to do holiday shopping is to attend fundraisers You can bid on auction items you d like to give as gifts and if you win one the money is tax deductible Not only will you be helping out a good cause you might find some unusual gift ideas too 8 As
