GIFTS FOR THE 99%

JONES SNOWBOARDS | prices vary |jonessnowboards.com | Hailing from Washington state, these are snowboards that not only make you feel good careening down endless runs at your chosen mountain, but that also make you feel good about buying, thanks to all the sustainable materials and methods employed. Each board uses select wood from forests managed to ensure their protection, as well as recycled base materials, side walls made from sustainable wood, no toxic fiberglass or resins, and even paper topsheets that eliminate about a pound of plastic per board created.

With authorized dealers all across the US (and a handful right here in Massachusetts), there's no need for a costly trip to the Pacific Northwest. Then again, we hear Occupy Seattle is a bitch of a time . . .

    As often happens when one makes judgments based on frivolous psychological connections (see: book, cover), one is often quite wrong.
