Forget the mall.

King County Parks has “green” holiday gifts galore. Holiday shoppers can support the regional parks system by shopping at the King County Parks Store.

The sales benefit 26,000 acres of public land, including Cougar Mountain Regional Wildland Park and Duthie Hill Mountain Bike Park near Issaquah.

Shoppers can create custom holiday cards, purchase parks-themed stamps or donate to the King County Parks Legacy Fund.

Zazzle, the online retailer behind the parks store, donates up to 27 percent of the net sales from purchased items to King County Parks.

The agency has also joined 41pounds.org, a nonprofit organization formed to reduce waste and pollution by helping people to limit the amount of junk mail they receive, to raise dollars for parks and programs.

The organization has pledged to donate to King County Parks for every subscriber referred through the King County Parks page.
