My Eco Friendly Christmas Picks

December 13, 2011

It’s amazing how quickly the year went by – it’s almost christmas again!! Eventhough I’m cutting down consumption more and more, I still love buying/giving gifts. Nevertheless, I don’t want to spend money on useless things, when I could rather give it to charity or simply save the earth from “trash”. That is why I’m trying (not always succeeding yet) to buy less gifts in general and to look for more eco friendly options. It takes a bit longer to find the right things but it’s so worth it. Here are some things that I found to be precious and kind to the earth.

Save the Seas
