Choosing Eco-Friendly Gifts

Whenever you select an environmentally-friendly gift for your family, friends and workmates, you help to create a more healthful and joyful future for both them and the planet.

Good Green Habits for Gifts

Here are ideas to make your gift-giving greener:

  • Choose solar powered presents, such as flashlights, lamps, laptop chargers, and radios.
  • Give organic and/or Fair Trade candy, coffee, food, and wine.
  • Look for items made from natural or recycled materials, such as jewelry, glassware, lamps, vases and works of art.
  • Purchase gifts that produce less waste, such as movie/concert tickets, museum or park passes and gift certificates.  
  • Select gifts that are durable, reusable, repairable, refillable, and/or recyclable. 
  • Avoid gifts that use batteries—but if you can’t, make sure they have power adapters (electrical plugs) and include rechargeable batteries with a charger. 
  • Stay away from overly packaged products.
