From Me, to You and the Earth With Love
Green products have come a long way over the last decade and they can make the perfect eco-conscious gift for everyone on your holiday gift list—and they don’t have to break the bank.
Retailers offer a variety of eco-friendly gifts, including the new EASY-BAKE Ultimate Oven that has replaced the energy-sucking bulbs with a heating element that cooks more like an oven to responsibly harvested rubber-tree footballs.
Mugs make for a great stocking stuffer and can be used by the recipient at the home, office or even for travel and will eliminate people turning to paper or Styrofoam cups. You can find a variety of mugs made from different materials like porcelain to silicone that will last a long time and be durable. Dress the gift it up with some hot cocoa or instant coffee and you've got yourself a delicious and a eco-friendly stocking stuffer.
Raise your glass to Mother Nature. You can now enjoy organic wine without risking flavor. Organic wine is made with grapes that exclude artificial chemicals such as sulfites, fertilizers, pesticides, fungicides, and herbicides. Many retailers offer organic versions of red and white wines, so be sure to ask at your next trip to the wine store to stock up.
From funky handbags made of cork, to sleek bracelets made from candy wrappers and biodegradable watches made of corn, you can dress up any wardrobe without hurting the eco-system.
For the Home
From unique works of art to recycled-glass flow decanters and even slate cheeseboards, there are many varieties of green options to decorate your recipient’s homes.
Not all gadgets are energy suckers. Give the techie in your life a wind-up universal remote controls that generate enough power for up to six devices for up to one week.
