A Zero Waste Culture - Community Compost

What to Give in Good Conscience?

Deciding on the perfect gift for the upcoming holidays can be stressful. Roaming the malls is possible again and on-line shopping is available 24/7 yet finding just the right present for a special person has not gotten easier. Aware of the many challenges we face in our communities, as a nation – and globally, we looked for ideas that blend gift-giving with awareness and activism.

Food and Democracy Frances More Lappé is the author or co-author of 20 books about world hunger, living democracy, and the environment. Together with her her daughter and co-author Anna Lappé they started a small revolution around how our eating habits affect the world around us. Check out: Diet for a Small Planet (first released in 1971) available as a 2021 50th-anniversary edition! :

She describes her latest book this way: “Democracy is humanity’s journey to realize power, meaning, and connection – the essence of human dignity”.  Daring Democracy: Igniting Power, Meaning, and Connection for the America We Want is an excellent gift to inspire democracy minded foodies!

The Gift of Adventure Pack your swimsuit, a picnic, your friends and your curiosity and head to the Key Biscayne Nature Center at Crandon Park for the “Seagrass Adventure” to explore what your local shoreline has to offer when you take a closer look.

Don’t Waste By composting wasted food and other organics, we reduce methane emissions, we eliminate the need for chemical fertilizers and create rich nutrient-filled soil. Give a Community Compost membership to a neighbor, a friend or yourself!

Second Chance Dragonfly Thrift Boutique has in inspiring gift shop and all proceeds go to LEAP, a Ladies Empowerment & Action Program, a non-profit empowering woman to put prison in their past. All proceeds from Dragonfly benefit LEAP.

When making your gift choices, look for ideas that support local activism, engagement, awareness and ways to give consciously.
