I've taken the pledge, and I encourage you all to do the same.

"Wal-Mart's low costs have extraordinarily high costs for people and the planet. This holiday season let the Walton Family -- the founders of Wal-Mart -- know that you and your family will buy nothing from Wal-Mart. Instead, pledge to make your gift purchases from businesses that are socially and environmentally responsible."

Sign Co-op America's No Wal-Mart Holiday Pledge Today.

No one on my list is getting anything from Wal-Mart for Christmas and Hanukkah this year. Instead, I hope that knitted scarves will keep necks and hearts warm this season.

Below is a sample of approved Green businesses in Oregon as screened by the National Green Pages. You can find more here.

Beeswax Candle Works

Cafe Mam

Garuda International

I am with you. We have a Wal-Mart fairly close to where we live and we don't shop there. I myself tend to only shop at places that give their employees a livable wage and health care.

Thank you for the list of Green businesses. I will look at them and be sure to patronize their establishments.

Nice list of super products you can buy in the great NW. I drink CafeMam every morning (they are really great people with THE BEST coffee I have ever had).
