Discardia and Green Gifts

I would like to submit an agenda item to the County Board of Supervisors declaring Discardia a government holiday. Dinah Sanders, who is the brainparent of Discardia, says, “Discardia is a new holiday. Why do we need a new holiday? Well, not exactly need, not as such, but this is a very good holiday.” The next one happens Dec 21-Jan 8.

Discardia is the celebration of stuff-purging. It is the seasonal remedy for Affluenza. It involves:
1. Giving away the stuff you don’t like or use.
2. Thinking about ways to buy less in the future.
3. Thinking about ways to give and ask for better gifts. This is especially timely for all you Christmas celebrators and New Years resolution makers out there, as Discardia coincides with Christmas and New Years this year.

The Heifer Project is pretty cool. You can give honeybees and knitting kits and goats.

You can also make stuff, including mix CDs and cookies, or a coupon book for fun things you will do with that person in the future. Check out the other post on Green Holidays for other green gift ideas, or look here at EcoArtware for inspiration!
