Instead of wasting plastic (or even compostable) forks and spoons when you eat out, get a bamboo spork for only $2 that will last infinitely longer, and fits in your wallet! Available at GreenFeet and other eco-stores.

Gift Wrapping

Instead of wasting paper and bows this holiday season, wrap your presents in furoshiki, a Japanese reusable fabric square from which infinitely many wrapping designs can be made. For history, common sizes, wrapping techniques, and more see Furoshiki.com. Posch has some very nice silk ones, but you could easily make your own with any thin fabric.
