Green gift guide and festive recipes!

We’ve jam-packed this issue with inspiration to reduce your eco-impact while still enjoying the spirit of the holiday season.

Check out our Holiday Gift Guide, featuring fabulous gifts that you can feel good about giving. For people who have everything (and those who want nothing), we’ve got gift ideas that support worthy environmental charities. You’ll also find 10 easy tips for an eco-conscious holiday season. Bonus for parents: a drama-free guide to ensuring that the gifts your kids get from well-meaning relatives are safe and green.

We’re also sharing delicious festive recipes: you’ll love these holiday menu ideas from Whole Foods Market, including savoury vegan gravy, melt-in-your-mouth mashed potatoes and more. And because the holidays and baking go hand in hand, try this Ontario Christmas Biscotti and heavenly Honey Butter Tuiles.

We’ve saved the best for last—we’re proud to introduce the Holiday Eco-Auction, with net proceeds benefitting Fashion Takes Action. Until December 5, bid on fantastic green gifts from a wide variety of eco-friendly products and services. Plus: Enter to WIN an EcoParent Ultimate Gift Pack, valued at over $450!

We wish you a safe, happy and healthy holiday season!
