This holiday season and throughout the year, the Library’s Environmental Sustainability Group’s Gift Guide makes it fun and easy to choose local, sustainable, fair-trade and recycled gifts and more. There are suggestions here for gifts that support local small businesses and artisans as well as places to find fair-trade sustainable items from around the globe. Or maybe the perfect gift is something a little less tangible. Researchers have found that for those who already have plenty, experiences bring more happiness than material possessions. And San Diego has so much to offer! Consider giving tickets to the movies, a concert or the theater or a membership to one of our local gardens or museums, a gift card to a favorite restaurant, or charitable donation.
This year’s guide is full of resources and ideas that are great for the local economy, easy on the earth, and delightful to receive. Enjoy the season!
