I’m Dreaming of a Green Christmas

12.13.2011 · Posted in Uncategorized

Stressed about what to get your loved ones this Christmas? Don’t fret! Buy your friends and family eco-friendly gifts this year, they’re fun, practical, and good for the enviornment!

Gifts made of cotton, silk, hemp, or wood: all of these materials are natural and renewable, and your loved ones are sure to enjoy their durability!

Gifts bought from local vendors: when you buy from local vendors, you eliminate the carbon emissions that come from the trasportation of far-away goods, not to mention you support your own community! Plus, a meaningful home town gift is always sure to warm your loved one’s heart.

Gifts made at home: Nothing is more precious and heartfelt than a homemade gift. Your loved ones will feel special and so will the enviornment! By using the materials you already have at home, you will prevent unecessary waste of unrenewable materials.

Still don’t know what to get for your friends and family?! Why not try some of these fun sustainable gifts!

Customizable Organic Cotton Bag: Give your loved one a beautiful organic cotton bag, with your choice of natural scenery. (http://www.ecoartproductions.com/)
