What to Buy, What to Buy- The Green Gift List

Thanksgiving is over, and its time to talk gift-giving!

If you have a worm lover, an organic gardener, or just an earth-friendly tree hugger on your list, this one's for you. I've poked around Amazon to find some of the most interesting, eco-positive purchases you can make for your loved ones this holiday season.

Besides being interesting and eco-friendly, my only other requirements were that the product be rated four stars or higher and be under $50.

Let's get started!

Fun in the Sun

Frostfire 16 Bright LED Wireless Solar Powered Motion Sensor Light (Weatherproof, no batteries required)
Everyone has that one side of the house that could use some extra lighting. This waterproof and heatproof solar motion light is perfect, and is guaranteed to last five years. Super simple and sleek design, too!

Taking a Ride

Eco Touch GPK110 Interior Car Care Kit Mini Pack
Guys can be difficult to buy for, but this handy dandy little kit for cleaning the car interior the green way is a great pick. It fits right in the glove compartment, and comes with mini-versions of Eco-Touch's window, leather, upholstery, dashboard, and all-purpose cleaners.

Veggies and Herbs Contained

EarthBox 1010002 Garden Kit, Terra Cotta
If you are buying for someone that used to be a gardener but now has limited space, the EarthBox will let them enjoy their old hobby in a fool-proof, space-saving way. They can pick their seeds and cultivate away in the reusable container.

Protect those Plants

Flower House FHSD100 SeedHouse Seed Starter
For people needing to protect plants from less than perfect weather, the Flower House will provide year after year of portable pop-up protection! Great air circulation, a light diffusing fabric, and the ability to extend the growing season make this a favorite of reviewers.

Worm Game!

Bamboo Collection Rapelli
Kids 4+ can roll the dice and try to pull their worms out of the bamboo stand first. Not only will the game help kids learn to strategize, it's also made from super earth-friendly bamboo.

Pick Up Day

Green Toys Recycling Truck
A recycling truck made from recycled materials to teach recycling to kids 1+. What else could be better?!

Oldie But Goodie!

Worms Eat My Garbage: How to Set Up and Maintain a Worm Composting System

If you have anyone on your gift list thinking of starting a worm bin, this will be their vermicomposting Bible! Start them off on the right foot by getting them the newly revised version of this super-scientific, instruction-packed reference book for new wormers.

You can find lots more ideas at Amazon Green.

Have a great earth-friendly gift idea or suggestion? Please share, and happy holiday shopping!
