Eco-Charities

Tis the season for giving! Two years ago, our family decided to put a little spin on the traditional Secret Santa.  We still draw names of others in the family, being on alert for the person who tries to sneak a peek into the hat of name cards, and buy a gift with a price-tag max.  Instead of buying actual 'stuff' that we don't really need for one another (how many marshmallow-launchers can one have, really?), we donate to a charity that we think our Secret Santa person would like.  So, for example, my sister-in-law loves dogs so if I drew her name I would donate to the MSPCA or to another local shelter.  If you're reading this, Julie, NO, I did not draw your name.  Stop cheating!!!

In honor of our tradition and to compliment OMBE's Philosophy, here is a list of eco-conscious and environmentally friendly charities in case you ever find yourself taking part in a similar tradition.
- Habitat for Humanity
- The Salvation Army
- Sierra Club
- The Pacific Wildlife Project
- American Forests
From working to protect our wild animals and plant life to making better use of the resources we have, the World Wildlife Fund is one of the major players when it comes to the 'green' movement. Adopt an adorable polar bear, support indigenous communities by purchasing unique art or just give what you can.
Right now, if you donate $10 or more you will receive EWG's special ChicoBag mesh produce bag! The mission of the Environmental Working Group (EWG) is to use the power of public information to protect public health and the environment.
- Ecology Fund
- The Conservation Fund
- Care2
- Recycling for Charities
- Environmental Defense Fund
Do you have a favorite charity you donate to during the holidays or throughout the year? Let us know your favorite and why you like to donate!
