After this past national day of gluttony, are you as disgusted as we are over the primal shopping orgies at the big-box stores across the country? There are movements afoot to go cold turkey and buy nothing for the holidays, but if you’re not quite ready to go there, at least think about going green this year. And while you’re at it, buy local and buy American. We’ve done some sustainable sourcing for you and here are a few eco-products that are standouts for that person who has everything.

For the kids on your list, think eco-toys like all natural soy wax Crayon Rocks. Here are some others we especially like.

Another great idea is to recycle shop at your local vintage store and delay the inevitable landfill destination. We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again that charitable gifting brings out your brilliance; donating to a favorite charity also contributes to personal well-being.

There are a ton of sustainable shopping sites on our website. Do you have others to recommend?  Our contest is still going on – recommend a sustainable/green gift idea and you are automatically entered to win $100 gift certificate for an Experience Gift.

Please feel free to share our resources with your colleagues, friends and family to make their shopping a little greener this holiday, as well. Comment here or connect and converse with us on Facebook and we hope you’ll “Like” us!
