While we are all celebrating the season of spending money on each other, how about making some of those gifts benefit both the recipients and the planet? It’s a great opportunity to put a little green into the lives of those you love.
Here are a few places you may be able to find the perfect present.
Greater Good Network This is a family of websites that support a number of causes from Rainforest preservation to literacy. On top of that, they have a Shop Green category with 18 pages of environmentally friendly gifts including recycled tire tube wallets to natural banana fiber sweaters.
