Over the festive season it's easy to get into a shopping frenzy, however everything we buy represents an investment in energy and water, and an output of greenhouse gas.  There are lots of interesting ways to give presents that show friends, family and colleagues that your care for them and for the planet.  They may well save you money too.

Cards

Choosing your cards wisely will minimize their environmental impact, and then have fun re-using or recycling them.
