Today I’m around the blogosphere talking about shopping green this Christmas on Green…Your Way, and how to choose a green Christmas Tree at Simple Organic.

I hope everyone has a Happy and Blessed Thanksgiving celebrating with your loved ones! Be sure to check back later Thursday night or Friday morning, I’ll be sharing lots of links for Black Friday ebook sales from some of my favorite blogging pals! E-books are a great green gift to give or receive!
