Green Gift Monday the Alternative to Cyber Monday

I wanted to bring this to your attention today in advance of Cyber Monday

The Nature Conservancy is celebrating the second year of Green Gift Monday, which coincides with Cyber Monday, November 28th, the biggest online shopping day of the year. We’d love for you to join us in raising awareness by promoting green, responsible giving options for the holidays – like purchasing energy efficient products, creating a do-it-yourself project, or donating to a charity in a gift recipient’s honor. Last year’s Green Gift Monday was a huge success, with 65+ partners showcasing their support. The campaign included coverage from Mashable and Treehugger just to name a few.

You can also check out The Nature Conservancy’s Green Gift Guide to find wonderful, responsible gifts of nature, like Adopt an Acre of Rainforest or a Coral Reef, that holiday shoppers can purchase without having to fight traffic at the mall. You can even send an e-card to announce your gift and reduce holiday wrapping trash.
