Give the Gift of GREEN: Not $$$ kind: Monday Mommy Tip

Yep, that is what I said! Give the Gift of "GREEN!" I guess I should actually say: "Give a GREEN Gift!"

Here is a great idea (well I think so of course, because I am going to actually do this for a couple people or more and have already started these gifts):

Start by getting a Reusable Grocery Bag (Lowes Foods has them in green for $.99)...this is your GIFT BAG! :-)

Fill your bag with some or all of the following items, depending on your budget for that person(s):

  • Compact Fluorescent Bulbs (the spiral bulbs you should be seeing everywhere!)
  • Method Brand Cleaning Products (found at Target: Not tested on Animals, non-toxic, earth friendly, recyclable and minimal may know a better brand? Share! This brand is very cost-friendly and works well!)
  • Clothes Pins
  • Retractable Clothes Line
  • Organic Chips or other foods that are Organic
  • Another Reusable Grocery bag tucked in the "gift bag"
  • Recycled Paper Products
  • Solar Energy Magazine (to really advocate)
  • Use your imagination!
  • Got anything to add...I am working on my gifts, would love to "hear" your ideas! Isn't it fun and useful?

Happy Monday and have a Great Week!
