Go Green with Eco-Friendly Gifts

Hands Holding Seedling representing Go Green with Eco friendly GiftsFor more than 40 years, Americans have been celebrating Earth Day by living greener. As a culture, we’re more conscience of the state of the world around us. We buy greener technologies and do our best to conserve so future generations can enjoy the same earth we do. We even teach our children to reduce, reuse, and recycle for a leaner and greener earth.

This year, let those around you know that the green theme can be carried into gift giving, too! I encourage you to go green with eco-friendly gifts, and have some fun while you do. Here are some great green gift ideas for Earth Day and any day!

Grocery Green

While this may not seem like a gift, you can easily turn these practical items into an eco-friendly gift set. Simply buy a reusable grocery bag, add reusable produce bags, and for good measure add some adorable reusable sandwich bags.That way even the kids get inspired to go green! Who knows, maybe you’ll even start a green trend of eco-friendly gift giving. Mother Earth will thank you!
