Green Your DIY Gifts: Baking

Holiday_cookies Feeling the economic pinch or are you just the crafty type? This week, we offer tips to help you green your inexpensive do-it-yourself projects.

Tip #3: Baking

For the cooking aficionado, cookies, brownies, and gingerbread houses are fun ways to send your friends and family a sweet gift. This year, many are skipping the Betty Crocker and making their delectables from locally produced and sustainable sources. If you do the same, you’ll save carbon emissions on the transit (unless you drive too far to get 'em), support local vendors, and get fresher ingredients. The result might even taste better too.

What are your favorite eco-friendly treats and recipes? Please share them as a comment below.
