Holiday 2016 News & Events from EarthShare Oregon 

What a month, EarthShare Supporter!

Snowflakes, icicles, and evergreens...oh my. Here in the Pacific Northwest, winter has most definitely arrived, right alongside the year's biggest holidays. To help make the season bright, we thought we'd keep our December newsletter short and sweet. And so, we're offering this simple page...of stress-free and eco-friendly ideas and inspirations!


Your Guide to Last-Minute Green GivingMay your days be merry, bright...and green!

You made your lists, checked 'em twice...and just discovered someone or something is missing. No worries! This is exactly the kind of problem green giving solves. It's quick. It's easy. It's fun. And best of all, with its emphasis on more experience and less stuff, it's good for the planet!

How about food you can feel good about?

Find delicious, healthy holiday recipes and ingredients with our business partners at Pacific Foods, Organically Grown Company, Ashland Food Co-op, First Alternative Co-op, and Mountain Rose Herbs

If you need a quick bite to eat while you're out and about, remember that Burgerville is dedicated to local farms and seasonal ingredients, and they're an EarthShare Oregon partner, too.


And for the gift that keeps on giving?

You can always give an honorary gift through EarthShare Oregon.

Plus, when you give $120 or more (that's just $10 per month), you'll receive 12 months of premium access to the Chinook Book mobile app, full of 2-for-1 deals you can share throughout the new year.
