Shop Online, Save the Environment!

Posted Dec 03 2009 12:00am


Attention all eco-minded holiday shoppers! Did you know that ordering holiday gifts on line is significantly more earth-friendly than buying them at the store? E-stores and warehouses use less space and energy than a traditional retail store, while mass deliveries by truck, van, or even airplane uses less fuel than individual car trips. Save time, sanity, and the environment? Sign me up!

Best of all, when online purchases are made from eco-friendly retailers, your holiday shopping gets even greener. One of my favorites? Like the name implies, it’s got everything! Want a futuristic, solar-powered race car for your kid? They’ve got it. What about a hip tote made from recycled seat belts for your best friend? That’s there too. Or maybe an organic shaving kit for your hubby’s stocking? Check, check, check.

Want to get shopping? Head over to Then, use that time you would’ve spent in traffic in the mall parking lot to curl up with a blanket, a good book, and a mug of hot cocoa.
