green gifts are getting a lot of media coverage this year. honestly, i would not mind if, as a gift, someone planted a tree or adopted a manatee (for me). but after december comes january, and then february, and then march, and then a few more months until my birthday, and then i don't keep track again until we run the whole cycle and get closer to my birthday again, but all the while, the ozone keeps getting depleted and a whole mess of other related problems contribute to yet more problems, and i keep shopping. i'm saying it's not exclusively a holiday problem. so on to a solution - if some how my constant shopping activity, let's say X, could some how be turned into a positive factor to offset global warming, we'll call that Y, then maybe i could single-handedly save the world or everyone could do it together. just a pipe dream?
which would be your preferred way for fashion to go green:
A. any item sitting unused in your closet for more than 4 weeks (during the appropriate season for the item) gets donated to a shelter or charity.
B. all your current clothing could last forever (indestructible...that means impervious to coffee and chocolate).
C. when you're done with an item, you plant it and a tree grows.
D. a % of every fashion purchase goes towards the manatee (or some equivalent, or some equivalent).
(if you're waiting for me to bring the x and y back into the equation to justify their introduction, i'm sorry to say i'm just going to leave them hanging.)
