In this country perhaps the oldest and most meaningful example of a ritualized 'green' offering is the Harvest Festival - food and flowers placed in the church for a short time but not left there to go to waste

What a spiffing idea for offerings at megalithic sites! Leave unobtrusive little caches of stuff that have cost real money (and effort) that would benefit old folks or sick children in hospital and let those who prefer their sites uncluttered take the trouble to deliver them to beneficiaries instead of chucking them.

Spirits pleased... offerers sincerified by financial effort.... chuckers ennobled... litter banished.... fogies delighted..... :)
