Make your gifts more “green”

From LifeHacker: Make your gifts more “green”:

Re-gifting is a good way to “go green,” as long as you’re not re-gifting something awful that the recipient won’t like, of course.

For kids, buy a family membership to the nearest zoo or science museum, so they can go anytime their parents will take them. It’s activity-based, learning-oriented, and environmentally sound. A lot of these memberships are transferrable, so they can use their local zoo membership to get discounts or free entrance to zoos all over the US.

For outdoorsy folks, $50 gets them a pass to the National Parks system– free admittance to all national parks for a year. Most state parks have a similar pass program.

I’m always partial to books as gifts, mainly because people don’t have the same nervousness about re-gifting, selling, or giving away a book just because it was given as a gift. Avoid writing in the inside, though, if you want the recipient to feel free to regift it.

Gift certificates to Starbucks, Jamba Juice, or locally-owned cafes and lunchtime places, are always appreciatd, and they’re generally inexpensive. A $10 gift card goes a long way at Starbucks, and the recipient can use it whenever they want.

Water Plants

(This is a note-to-self)

Eustradis stellata
Hygrophila sp. “ceylon”
Banana lilly
Duckweed
Water Sprite

2 or three other unidentified plants.
