Q: I've been receiving lots of baby shower presents from friends/family who don't know how important a green-friendly lifestyle is to me and my husband. I'm working on educating them (in a non-obnoxious way) but in the meantime, what do I do with all the gifts I receive that I just won't use? For example, I've received lots of blankets and onesies that are made of 100% polyester…

... I don't want to use these on my baby and I feel a little hypocritical about donating them to a thrift shop. Do you have any suggestions for how to best deal with these kinds of products?
