Gifts to “Green” Your Life

Wrap-N-Mat® Regular, Set of 3

I need to get these for myself to bring to work…it drives me crazy to use up baggies for a simple sandwich or a piece of cheese. There are a few different styles, (including reusable sandwich bags) so check ‘em out and get the best one for the sandwich ‘toting people on your holiday list.

Plastic Bag & Bottle Dryer

Sometimes it is impossible to resist the convenience of plastic bags and if you want to reuse them multiple times, here is the perfect solution for drying them out. This device is made in Canada from sustainably harvested wood. If you doubt that this might not be the best present you give this holiday season, head on over to the ReUseIt website and see that this simple item has over 150 reviews… it is loved (more like worshiped!) by everyone who buys it.

Glass Dharma Set of 3 Glass Straws with Brush

This item is a bit indulgent, but if you are like me and enjoy a nice cold drink, but happen to have sensitive teeth, you know that drinking through a straw is the way to go. I love this set because it is handmade in the USA and comes with its own brush. A great ecological solution for kids (and adults) who like to drink out of a straw. The reviews over at state that even though the straws are breakable if they drop on the floor, they are pretty sturdy and hold up pretty well.
$24.95 at has a lot of cool products, gift certificates, too.

Recycled Paint Can Birdhouses


These are the best birdhouses I’ve seen in a long time! The design is genius! If you want to clean out the birdhouse, just pop the paint can lid. Easy to hang up and install on your tree, easy to move around from year to year. Birds love them, young children can’t stop watching them and the neighbors can’t stop talking about them!

They are made with recycled materials (the main body fabric, the polyester webbing and the plastic buckles are all recycled) and they are manufactured in a Fair Labor Association and Social Accountability International approved factory.
