Shop green whenever you shop! It's good for the planet.
Of course, the greenest option is always "don't buy!" However, if you're in need of a nice gift or have a case of "the wants," then, whenever possible, make sure buy items that are: all-natural, eco, eco-friendly, fair trade, found, green, handcrafted, handmade, homegrown, local, non-toxic, organic, pre-owned, recycled, reclaimed, repurposed, reused, sustainable, thrifted, upcycled, and/or vintage.
