“Aligning with community-based events such as Eco Gift 2008 enables The Los Angeles Times to further connect with our readers and users in meaningful ways,” said the Times’ director of events and strategic partnerships, Bill Benjamin. “We support efforts to raise awareness and provide responsible, environmental solutions and look forward to a fun weekend of eco-conscious holiday shopping.”

“We spend each year seeking out those companies that are best-in-class in terms of quality and sophistication, who also are committed to the well-being of people and the environment,” said Tommy Rosen, co-founder of Eco Gift.
