The Earth911 podcast, Sustainability in Your Ear, looks at holiday shopping that doesn’t damage the planet. We explore whether shopping online or at the mall is better for the environment. Earth911 writer Sarah Lozanova introduces five green fashion brands to look for when shopping and our new list of top electric vehicles. And Earth911 writer Trey Granger takes us on a skiing green vacation.
We review the questions to ask when shopping for sustainably produced jewelry, how to request less wasteful packaging in your Amazon orders, how giving an experience instead of stuff can make a more memorable gift, and other eco-friendly gift ideas. And we discuss recent Earthling Survey results: Do you prefer plastic or paper food packaging?
As always, we answer Earthling Questions, including what cookware goes into curbside bins and how to recycle lithium-ion batteries.
