Buy local. Do you have a farmer's market? We have one and a lot of the farmers aren't certified organic but they practice organic methods. Just ask, and if they say they do, then you can ask more in debth questions to find out if they really are.
I made a banner for my dd and wew use it every year...2 so far I just got around a yard of felt fabric for the banner and then cut out "happy birthday dd" and glued it on the banner. It's very special.
