Green Christmas suggestions from IzzitGreen

Just in time for our readers’ last minute Christmas Shopping, our friends from IzzitGreen have come up with five great eco-friendly Holiday gifts. As an additional eco-incentive 50% of the proceeds earned for any purchase of the Get to Know Nature bag will go directly to the Get to Know organization and help support their mission to keep the National Parks of the U.S. and Canada vibrant. Enjoy!

Get to Know NatureBag

The NatureBag is packed full of fun activities designed to support Get to Know’s main mission to connect kids with the great outdoors. The all-weather activity booklet and other accessories encourage exploration and natural awareness through lead experiential activities. Pack up all the eco-friendly tools made from recycled materials into the unique fair trade, organic cotton shoulder bag and away you go! Last year the Get to Know NatureBag received the Gold Medal Award from Parent’s Choice as an eco-friendly and socially sound choice. GrowBottles


Everything you need to grow fresh herbs and gain the culinary respect (or envy) of your friends is packaged into these beautiful recycled GrowBottles, and they're made completely with sourced and re-purposed materials. With a little water and love the GrowBottles can continue to produce year after year with your own seeds or one of the refill kits. Thanks to brilliant design and the power of hydroponics, growing fresh herbs indoors has never been so easy. Available in Oregano, Chives, Basil, Parsley and Mint certified organic seed varieties.

Presso Espresso Machine

The perfect gift for the eco-conscious espresso lover on your list. The Presso offers delicious, rich espresso unplugged, literally. The beautifully simple design uses little more than the strength of recyclable steel and your biceps. A truly minimalist approach to creating an exquisitely thick treat, prepared for your sipping pleasure in less time than it takes electric machines to start to steam. Plus, clean up is a piece of cake. Just dump and rinse!

Miniwiz iPhone Re-Case

This innovative iPhone case is 100% made from trash! However, you'd never know it looking at the elegant, snap-on design made from this highly durable re-engineered material. The ergonomic ripple design fits perfectly in your hand and the light cross-hatch pattern looks fantastic. The snug fit offers nothing but reliable protection and the extra space for an RFID card is a incredibly valuable bonus.<1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifr

Wool Striped Scarf

Scarves are incredible. All warmth and style without the bulk of an extra layer. This scarf by Gaiam is extra special because it’s hand loomed with 100% superwash sustainable wool making it sinfully soft and unique. Plus, the pretty pattern is a perfect addition to any outfit. Let it drape, wrap it into cowl, or sling it over your shoulder.
