Going Green: Christmas Gifts 2010

Has the “green” movement finally inspired you to think of the ways you buy Christmas gifts? Do you want to inspire your friends to change the way they treat the earth? Or do you just know someone that lives an environmentally conscious lifestyle? Either way there is a tremendous amount of Christmas gift ideas on the market for the “green” consumer, and you can find some of the best “green” gifts right here carefully chosen for the 2010 Christmas season.

It might sound trite to buy a shopping bag as a Christmas gift, but if the person you are gifting leads an environmentally friendly life style it will seem thoughtful to them. You can go the extra step too by choosing a shopping bag or carry bag that is made of organic or recycled materials. Not only will your Christmas gift recipient be impressed that you thought of their needs, but that you also did it in an environmentally friendly way.

There is also a great assortment of house hold cleaning products, soaps and shampoos, laundry detergents, and candles and air fresheners made from “green” material. Burt’s Bees line of products is always a hit with “green” friendly folks. Another great “green” Christmas idea, which will benefit through the year is energy saver light bulbs. You not only please the environmentally conscious person, but you save them money all year round. In the same vein there are some pretty cool solar powered flashlights or solar powers battery chargers out there too.

Does this person own a bicycle? It could be one angle not thought of, but you will help them reduce their carbon footprint and in turn taking their “green” lifestyle that much further. Don’t forget the original “green” Christmas gift: plants. It is a sure fire way to go straight to the heart of any environmentally conscious person’s sense of Christmas “green.” BOLA TANGKAS
