Unique ideas for giving green holiday gifts

Seattle-area residents are so eco-aware that some might even suffer from “green gift-giving fatigue.” 

You may love to receive green holiday gifts, and you may have several people on your list who love them, too. But your sister already has four reusable water bottles, and last year, you gave your best friend a waste-reducing “experience gift” of tickets to a great play. (Two tickets actually, so she could take you.)

You don’t need to keep recycling the same green gift ideas. This year, let’s shake it up a little and get quirky, cool and distinctive with our holiday gifts.

Q: Can I recycle my used cooking oil?

A: Dear Tom,

Whether you cook with butter, olive oil or pancetta drippings, your used or unwanted cooking oil and grease can have a life-after-dinner as biofuel. While you can put cooking oil and grease in the garbage you now have another choice - support a local and renewable green fuel movement by donating your kitchen oil.
