Eco Friendly Gift Ideas

green glass dessert platesWhen it comes to being Eco friendly around the holidays, it’s really not that hard to find the perfect gifts.

As the world is finally waking up to the importance of being green, you can now find a colossal of Eco gifts for everyone.

Note: Just because a gift is labeled organic or vegan, it does not mean that it’s something to eat. There are a great deal of organic or vegan products that aren’t edible.

Feel good about buying gifts this season; give the gift of Eco love. There is not much time left to order online so that you get the package before Christmas. Hurry before it’s to late.

If you can’t decide what to get that special person, here are some wonderful ideas:

Very soft fabric, not stiff at all. Not heavy weight like bathroom towels, but not as thin as most kitchen towels. The “dune” color is a nice neutral brown tone; it does not have any green to it, though it looks like it would on my screen.

Versatile class to bring to school or to work as a lunch container and a lunch bowl! The snap tight lids will help keep all your food fresh and secure while they are stackable for easy storage.

Review: They are of very high quality and as useful as I had hoped.
I particularly appreciate the design of the plastic lids, which attach at three places and don’t have to be forced to fit all around, as do those of some other manufacturers.

I hope these will be produced in larger sizes sometime.

Flying Sea Urchin Shell Jellyfish! Hinterland Trading Air Plant

air plant jellyfishKnown as Tillandsia, the air plant does not require soil to grow.

It needs moderate light and a good soak every week.

This very low-maintenance plant is the perfect gift for people who love plants but do not have the gift of a green thumb.

This particular Hinterland Trading Air Plant looks just like a jellyfish suspended in air.

 I have to say that I bought an air plant for myself. I love it. The plant is set in a beautiful shell and hangs from my kitchen widow.

Grove Bamboo iPhone Case – Nautical Needle

bamboo iphone caseThis iPhone case is made from sustainable Eco friendly bamboo and hand-engraved bamboo.

It is a slim and sleek two-piece design case that offers easy access to all ports and buttons. Even with a lightweight construction it protects your phone from damage, dust or scratches.

Review: This case came all the way from China a lot quicker than Amazon forecasted (but not what I’d call quick). The wood is solid and smooth to the touch, and the engraving on the back is, in a word, beautiful.

The case even has a wooden smell to it. It’s in two pieces that snap together with a satisfying click and the placement of the engraving makes the seam invisible. Headphone and power ports are accessible and my headphones click all the way in, which can be a problem with some cases. The cutouts for the side buttons are clean and smooth and the buttons are easy to press. All in all, I love this case and it was definitely worth the wait.

The other review states the case is loose and the phone wobbles but mine isn’t loose at all, it fits perfectly.

The seller was friendly and kept me up to date via email, even writing a few days before delivery to let me know the item had cleared customs and providing me a tracking number. Great seller, great iphone case. 5 stars!

Eco Gifts for Kids

Ah, the children, don’t you just love them! The jumps of joy on Christmas morning, that’s what the season is all about. Here are some Eco gifts to put a smile on their face.

Glob All Natural Paint Kit (6 Colors)

natural paints for kidsMade from fruits, vegetables, flowers and spices!

Glob All Natural Paint Kit includes 6 color packets, 6 compost able containers with lids and 2 bamboo brushes. Paint colors include Lemon Verbena, Blueberry, Pomegranate, Tangerine, Plum Purple and Basil Green.

The brushes have a sustainable bamboo handle with cruelty-free taklon bristles. As well, the entire do-it-yourself kit is packaged in a sustainable rice paper pouch.

Review: I absolutely love everything about these paints! They came with cups to mix the paints in and two small, wooden-handled brushes. I mixed the paint according to package instructions and the result was a gel-like consistency. It doesn’t spill even if the cup is turned completely upside down- perfect for my two-year-old artist. More water can be added for a looser consistency if desired. These paints smell amazing, like fresh fruits and herbs. It didn’t seem like much paint powder when I first opened it, but a little goes a long way and has lasted months of regular use because I only mix up 2 to 3 colors at a time. Leftover paint can be stored in the fridge. I would highly recommend this product and will purchase again when we run out.

Just Rocks in a Box

natural crayons for kidsSixty four all natural soy wax crayons in 16 colors: red, green, blue, orange, egg yolk yellow, purple, pink, black, brown, grass green, sunshine yellow, sky blue, peach, tan and gray.

This set is intended for classrooms of 24 children. This box generally lasts a whole year even with frequent use.

Note: they appear small but volume is greater than major brand stick crayons. The perfect size crayon for the hands of young children!
