Your Daily Thread at Unique LA, where LAist shopped earlier this month

Your Daily Thread, which published a Silver Lake to Atwater Village green guide earlier this year, reminds us that in these recession and eco-couscious times, wrapping your presents with newspapers ain't that bad of an idea.

And the video brings us back to one of our favorite ideas of using a reusable bag as wrapping paper. Watch that how-to video, which we posted last year, here.

The eco-concious daily newsletter has also published a variety of holiday related greeness, include a Waste Free Holiday Guide and Affordable, Environmental & Local guide. One of our favorites is the Naturally Sweet Baked Apples recipe.
