Giving Green this Holiday… and We’re Not Talking Cash

MASSACHUSETTS – Whether you’re hoping to share an interest of your own or showing support of a loved one’s favorite organization, the editors of NoBo have compiled this list of charitable organizations, conservation areas, and museums from across the region as a one-stop shopping spot for gift memberships.

In times where so many non-profit organizations are losing funding and support, the holiday season can actually be embraced by shoppers as the perfect opportunity to support something or someone they love. These gifts are perfect for the environmentalist, local activist, or history buff in your family or circle of friends.

You’re helping give back to your community, and you’re giving in a green, environmentally friendly manner, further bolstering our commitment to bringing our readers options to think and live locally.
