There are numerous ways you can have an effect on this season’s environmental impact right in Lubbock, Texas. Basic goals in environmentally-friendly shopping can include buying locally-produced and grown food, purchasing locally created gifts and reducing consumption while recycling as much as possible. Here are a few “green” suggestions for this holiday season:
* Buy locally grown and produced food for your holiday meals. Texas produces many fruits and vegetables year-round which are available at farmers markets and some grocers. Check packaging to see where the item was grown or produced.
* Support your local artisans and buy local arts and crafts as gifts to support your town’s culture. Check the internet and newspaper for local arts and crafts shows.
* Give gift certificates to a local one-of-a-kind local restaurant.
* Consider giving gifts that aren’t “things” but experiences like tickets to a concert, yoga lessons, cooking classes or tickets to the local museum. Often these gifts are more meaningful and greatly appreciated.
Buying locally supports local jobs and local businesses in Lubbock. When you buy gifts and other products from smaller local shops, your help support your communities’ businesses and jobs. That’s good for you and for your community.
You can also live a “greener” life year-round in Lubbock when you live in a traditional neighborhood development like Vintage Township. Designed to be a walk-able community, Vintage Township is a community where you can live, work, play and shop right in your neighborhood. When built-out, Vintage Township will have homes in all price ranges, a neighborhood school, shops, offices, restaurants, plenty of recreational activities and even it’s own Farmer’s Market to purchase locally grown produce.
We invite you to explore all that Vintage Township has to offer...start your tour now by visiting our online Town Plan at www.vintagetownship.com/townplan.asp . If you visit any Friday or Saturday between December 5th and December 20th you can enjoy Vintage Township’s Winter Wonderland where it’s guaranteed to snow every 20 minutes.
