ECO FRIENDLY GIFT IDEAS
1. Reusable grocery bags
Reusable grocery bags do not have to be boring and ugly. There are designer reusable grocery bags now available in many colors, patterns and styles. Everyone has to eat, and this is a great gift that anyone can use. Find bags made from organic cotton or recycled materials.
2. All-natural, eco-friendly bath and body products
Everyone needs soap, lotion and bath products. Many do not realize all of the chemicals that are contained in typical bath and body products purchased at the grocery or discount store. These chemicals are hazardous to not only skin, but the environment as well. Many websites specialize in the sale of all-natural bath and body products.
3. Reusable beverage bottles
Millions of plastic water bottles are disposed of in landfills every year. Reusable beverage bottles can encourage others to break the bottled water habit. These bottles are also great for green tea, coffee and other beverages. Be sure to purchase a thermal, heatproof thermos for any coffee-lovers.
4. Eco-friendly candles
Candles are great this time of year for providing a relaxing atmosphere and providing warmth and comfort at the same time. There are candles that are made of soy and other all-natural wax alternatives that can throw off a great fragrance without emitting harmful chemicals.
5. Organic, fair-trade wine
Many wine-drinkers shy away from organic wine because they have never tried it. A great bottle of organic wine can be just the right gift for a wine-drinker who has yet to sample some of the great, organic varieties out there.
6. A gift certificate to the local health food store
There are many types of organic items available at a health food store, from food to vitamin supplements. This allows your gift recipient more freedom to choose what eco-friendly items they would like to sample.
7. Stationary made from recycled materials
This is a great, affordable gift for co-workers. They can jot down notes and shopping lists while helping the environment at the same time.
