Over consumption has become as American as apple pie (organic apples, please). The holidays are a perfect time to examine our lust to consume, and adjust our priorities for the betterment of the planet.

As you ponder your Naughty and Nice list, if you’re not sure of someone’s size or taste, or feel intimidated by the person who has everything — there are lots of worthy causes that you can donate to in another’s name.
