Blog : Give the gift of Green Alliance this season, and get a free Acorn Organic Salon gift certificate and Green Alliance tote bag!
Do you really want to fight traffic getting to the malls this holiday season? Do you regret giving a loved one a gift you know they won't like? Wouldn't you like to give a gift that shows you care about that person's values, while also supporting the local economy?
The Green Alliance has the answer: a gift membership that includes a one-year membership to the Green Alliance, a $10 gift certificate to Acorn Organic Salon's locations in Dover and Exeter, and a sturdy Green Alliance zip-able tote bag. It's all yours for just $35 (tote bag must be picked up at the Green Alliance office at 75 Congress St in downtown Portsmouth). Once you have your swag bag in hand, be sure and join us for the Green Alliance Holiday Bash on December 15 at Two Ceres Street, Portsmouth's green martini bar!
This holiday gift means much more than a hollow, obligatory necktie or bottle of perfume; when you give someone a Green Alliance membership, you're giving him or her membership into a community of citizens and business owners that want economically strong and environmentally healthy communities. Plus, you're giving someone discounts at nearly 100 local businesses that keep giving long after the holiday wreaths are taken down. You won't get that kind of feeling by giving a gift certificate to a big box store!
Mary Welch, a proud Green Alliance member from Litchfield, NH, gushed about the Green Alliance Gift package. "I just purchased 5 Green Alliance memberships as Christmas gifts, including some for my two Yankee Swaps; what a deal!" Welch then went on to describe the savings she gets through her membership. "I have never purchased such a leveraged gift. I joined in May at Earthtec, and with the Green Alliance discount, it almost paid for itself in that visit! I then went to Beach Peach Bakery and got a free loaf of rosemary bread, then it was over to the Portsmouth Brewery for the best spicy mussels anywhere!"
"By the end of the day, I had more than saved the membership dues, which I didn't expect. And the more important thing was supporting green businesses in New Hampshire and Maine. Looking at the supporting businesses, they stretch far and wide, so I'd encourage everyone to consider a Green Alliance membership as a gift to encourage more green awareness among family and friends," Welch continued.
Mary, we couldn't have said it better. So skip the mall, the traffic, and the outlet stores, and give the gift of green (economy) this season. Order your Green Alliance gift membership package today!
