Earth Day is fast approaching and, while it might not spring to mind as a holiday that you would give gifts for, I found some awesome, eco-friendly handmade items that will make you want to buy Earth Day gifts for other people and for yourself.
Let’s start with the now ubiquitous “green” tote bag. Sure, you can buy one in the checkout line at the grocery store, but would that have adorable owls on it like this great tote from The Craft Pantry? Not only is this bag tote-ally cute (ha!), but it is also made of 100% recycled cotton.
Continuing with the owl theme is this onesie / tee from Sweet 3 Leaf Prints. I love that you can share your affection for mother Earth in such a fun way with your kids!
Next up on the Earth Day wish list are these fabulous bowls created by Cinderelish. These bowls come in multiple colors and I love the fact that the way she writes eARTh puts the emphasis on Art!
So, let’s say you really want to go all out on earth day, and get something special for an important man in your life. I recommend these beautiful mother of pearl cuff links from The Cuft Lynx. What a stylish and savvy way for your guy to show his commitment to the environment! Makes me wish my hubby ever wore cuff links!
And, while we’re on the subject of adding a little sparkle to your outfit, here is a gorgeous recycle necklace, made by the Heather Curry Collection. Simple, sophisticated, and eco-conscious!
Maybe you’re looking for a small token to remind you of the importance of Earth Day. Perhaps something you will use frequently and love every time you look at it! I recommend this wonderful Little Bird measuring tape made from felt that is 100% post-consumer recycled plastic. Drop in at Malama Kids to see this and other fun felted pieces.
Apparently I was hungry when I was looking for Earth Day items, because one of my favorite selections this week is this Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough soap made by Savor. Now if only I could convince myself to not eat it!
Want to do more than buy organic or recycled items? How about making your own laundry detergent? Even if you don’t feel up to making it from scratch, you can order this Vegan laundry soap base from Shower Treat Soap. They’ll even include recipes for you!
And while you are patting yourself on the back for doing something great for the earth, why not do some planting too, with these sunflower seed implanted hang tags from Romeo 2 Juliet. Just imagine the lovely blooms that you will soon be enjoying!
Hopefully, these products help you to see how easy it is to by earth friendly on earth day, and every day! Next week we’re going to get ready to celebrate Cinco de Mayo!
