Waste Wise/Oak Harbor Holiday Campaign

There are a number of noteworthy sustainability projects on Whidbey Island. Below are a few Spotlight Sponsors for the SHOP LOCAL Coupon Book that offer programs worth mentioning:

Give Gifts of Experience instead of more STUFF!

Give Gifts of Experience instead of more STUFF!

Between Thanksgiving and New Year's Americans generate 25% more garbage. With holiday parties, decorations, wrapping and gifts our trash cans overflow with bubble wrap, Styrofoam peanuts, foil, batteries, tinsel and plastics.

This year look for the bright star on the SHOP LOCAL coupons which indicate "Gifts of Experience". Tickets to a show or sporting event, a gift card to a favorite restaurant or coffee shop, a club membership, class or fitness center make great holiday gifts but require only an envelope for wrapping. Trim the trash while you trim the tree. Because the best things in life… aren't things!

The Waste Wise Holiday Campaign is sponsored by the City of Oak Harbor and Island County WSU Waste Wise Program. For more information check out the DVD from Sno-Isle Libraries called the Truth About Trash. Or visit:
