  1. Nice offers, Good job. There are some great gifts here.

    Comment by Josh | November 11, 2008

  2. Conscious consumers looking for an extra special eco-gift should check out C5. All of our jewelry is made from recycled metal and either ethically sourced or lab-created gems. You shouldn’t have to sacrifice beauty for sustainability.
    Wear Your Commitment.

  3. Great guide, thanks for posting it! My favorite spot for eco-friendly and unique gift ideas is All Wired Up jewelry http://www.allwiredupjewelry.com. Lots of things I have never seen before and very reasonably priced.

  4. Great job on the gift guide! I created a company in memory of my 28 year old sister, Liz, who died from breast cancer. Uptown Liz (www.uptownliz.com) promotes products from companies whose proceeds go to charity. You can shop on this one-of-a-kind Web site by charitable cause or product category, knowing that every time you make a purchase you are making a difference. There are many great art, clothing, jewelry, house wares, beauty and eco-friendly products (just to name a few) that benefit charities all over the world.

  5. This is a great guide. You should make it clear, though, that you got it from Co-op America at http://www.coopamerica.org/pubs/greengifts/index.cfm.

  6. Hi Rusty, thanks for the comment. In addition to the links that were already there to Co-Op, I also added the word at the beginning of the post, just in case.
