Last Minute Holiday Prep!

Are you looking for a few last minute holiday gifts? Consider the more sustainable options here in Greensboro!

Fair Trade/Local places to shop:

  • Plato’s closet
  • Ten Thousand Villages
  • Bargain Box (downtown)
  • Eco dwelling
  • Etsy shops (often home made stuff for sale)
  • Sisters Jewelry
  • Just Be
  • Civic Threads
  • Pretty Birdie
  • Design Archives

When you head to the grocery store to stock up for holiday meals, be sure to shop for local and organic options.  These are easy to find at Deep Roots Market (located on Spring Garden Street near Wendover) and Earth Fare (on Battleground Avenue).

Be creative with your gift wrapping options. Newspapers, magazines, and children’s artwork are better options than traditional wrapping paper.
