I’m not going to lie, It’s not my favorite time of year. But before getting all bah humbug, I have to admit, I am excited to see more ‘green’ gift ideas surfacing amidst an overpowering market full of environmentally unsound products. I am ecstatic to see that green labor, recycled materials and earthy friendly presents are becoming a popular trend this season. I have gathered a few of my favorite green gifts from all over the country that I think meet or exceed the green-gold standard. Let me enlighten you with some evergreen gift-giving cheer.
I saw this great recycling toy truck while working in a artisan craft store last year during the holidays. The design is genius, and the company, ‘Grass Roots’ is reputable for making products with a minimal footprint on the environment. This tiny but mighty truck is made from all non-toxic and recycled materials(Canadian Pine!) and teaches your little one, at a young age, the importance of recycling!

If you’re anything like me, your pets are your children so you want to spoil them just as silly. I stumbled upon these funky little recycled cat toys in an issue of Green Living magazine. They are reused wine corks thoughtfully wrapped in cotton twine and stuffed with organic cat nip! Gerda Lobo, a guest designer for Modern Cat makes all of the products by hand.
