It's more than 50 years since the launch of icon doll Barbie, and she hasn't aged a day -- in fact, since she's said to require over 1,000 years to decompose, she won't age a day for a long, long, time.
In the festively-wrapped boxes of the holiday season, Barbie's joined by smart phones, Hot Wheels, e-readers, questionable holiday sweaters knit from polyester and boasting the twinkling of LED lights -- all destined to spend agonizingly long, drawn-out deaths in the landfill or spend an eternity swirling about in the ocean.
Avoid the ugly truth behind this pine-scented reverie of gift-bliss here with biodegradable and compostable gifts that will go gently into that good night.
