ECO, the Environmental and Conservation Organization, is offering local residents some gift ideas that not only show a loved one that you care, but offers them the gift of protecting our sacred natural resources. Rather than buying family and friends more “stuff”, why not consider making a donation to protect our streams, support green energy, promote recycling and strong environmental policies by making a donation to ECO on their behalf. ECO will send them a beautiful holiday card with local nature photos from award-winning local photographer, Rob Travis printed by our own local green printer, HPC Printing.
Another gift idea is offering a loved one a heritage fruit or nut tree. ECO has just launched its annual heritage tree sale which includes heritage apple trees, American chestnuts, persimmons, peaches, blueberries and more. To purchase a tree for yourself or a loved one, or to take advantage of ECO’s alternative gift-giving opportunities, log onto to ECO’s website at www.eco-wnc.org or call ECO at (828) 692-0385.
For nearly 25 years, ECO has been the preeminent organization in WNC working to protect our natural heritage. Happy Holidays!
