The shopping season is upon us again and while going green is about reducing as well as reusing I’m sure that most of us are still planing on giving presents this holiday season. So I would like to share with you some of the great eco-friendly products and companies that I have found to help give you ideas for this holiday season. Once a week I will highlight a company whose eco-standards make them worth a look or a list of eco-gifts that I have found that just totally rock.
I would like to state that I am in no way compensated for my support of these companies or their products. I simply have an interest in sharing with you the companies and products that I have found and feel are worth checking out.
Today I’d like to share with you HearthSong. Started in 1983 they are a company committed to providing parents with quality products for their children. They are committed to reducing their carbon footprint which includes planting two trees for every catalog that is printed, they use 50% recycled materials for packaging their products, and are currently partnering with other companies to help Reforest America. You can read more about the company’s eco-policies here.
Here is a list of my top picks from HearthSong that are under $25.00. I want to keep the gift selections to a reasonably budget friendly amount.
Constructive utensils and plate $14.98-$19.99
Happyville Blocks $9.98-$27.98
Dripsticks set of 4 $19.98
Rolled-Paper Beads $15.98
Wheelie Zip Bin $19.98
Friendly Safari Animals $24.98
Sno-Baller and Snow Block maker $5.98-$8.98
Connectagons Treetop $24.98
Organic Bunny $16.98
Swaddle Wrap with hat $21.98
There are lots of other gifts on HearthSong’s website that are worth looking at and have gift search features by price, age group, or by type (ie music, arts and crafts, and science) to help you find the perfect gift for your little person. While not all of the gifts are eco-gifts per-say they are high quality and are less likely to end up in the trash come Valentine’s Day. So take a look and maybe you can cross of a few things from you list early in the shopping season.
