Reconnecting ‘Green’ values with Holiday Values- How to Have a Merry Upcycled Christmas

Upcycling gifts this holiday season reminds people of true spirit of gift-giving

 
PRLog - Nov. 29, 2010 - COQUITLAM, Canada -- Edmonton, AB- As people face the chaos of holiday shopping, DIY guru Linda Bodo reminds people that handmade gifts offer so much more than store-bought gifts – for those giving and receiving!  It’s easy to get caught up in the hype of Christmas shopping, so Bodo wants to remind people that ‘upcycling’ – utilizing items already in our possession – offers creative and environmentally-friendly alternatives for gift-giving and holiday decorating.
“We typically only think of the impact of a gift on the person who receives it – but with an upcycled gift it truly is better to give than to receive!” says Bodo. “The process of making something with your hands - something original and unique - can be extremely satisfying and rewarding, especially if you share these activities with friends and family.  We get too tied up with the idea that every gift we give has to be ‘bought’.  We assign gifts a value based on what they cost, rather than looking at what’s really important – namely the sentiments behind it.”
And these eco-friendly Christmas concepts can be integrated into many of your holiday activities. People can consider integrating upcycling right into their holiday entertaining – a ‘potluck’ Christmas workshop where invitees bring their own supplies to share with fellow participants, is a great way keep to costs down and use up existing supplies.  Everyone leaves with ‘new’ gifts and decorations while at the same time minimizing their carbon footprint.  
A myriad of upcycling projects can been found in Bodo’s two books, regular columns, and public appearances.  For information and project ideas visit the Absolute Bodo website at www.absolutebodo.com
