Impact Tip - eco-friendly gift ideas

As Christmas approaches, if you are like me, you are scrambling to think of some great gift ideas for friends and family. I was reminded yesterday that my neighbor Tiffany is going to be a part of the next Gallery walk in Pilsen that is tomorrow night. She is at 826 W 19th Unit 2 and she will be featuring her screen printed products.

These are really unique because she goes out to find vintage linens and tea towels and cleans them really well then adds her own screen print onto them. This gives them a fresh new look and brings an old cloth to new life. This is eco-friendly because instead of going out and buying new materials, she reuses vintage materials which reduces the amount of chemicals going out into the environment to make new materials and stimulates the local economy by buying local. You in turn stimulate the local economy by buying from her. This is a great way to make a positive impact in your community this holiday season.

If you can't make it out to her place tomorrow from 6-9 pm, be sure to check out her online store at www.ilovepinkdots.etsy.com

Here is just one example of a gift that I bought for a friend...not telling who ;)
