Go (and Give) Green This Holiday Season with The Nature Conservancy

This year, the organization encourages consumers to "rethink the holidays"

Arlington, VA | December 11, 2012

For the third consecutive year, The Nature Conservancy is encouraging consumers to go green during the holiday season. Formerly known as Green Gift Monday, this year's campaign to green the season has been rebranded as Green Gift Holidays to encourage eco-friendly celebrations the whole month long.

Join us in raising awareness by promoting green, responsible giving and celebrating options for the holidays—like purchasing energy-efficient products, creating a do-it-yourself project, donating to a charity in a gift recipient’s honor or hosting an eco-friendly party. The Green Gift Holidays website is a great resource for all things seasonal, from recipes to choosing the perfect Christmas tree.

The Green Gift Holidays team is asking blogs, nonprofits and retailers to join the movement and promote the concept through their own channels. Interested? Here's how you can help:
