ECOEarth Day is April 22nd and one exciting new trend that I am noticing is a lot of Eco-Friendly and stylish products for guys! Think: manly-man, or what I like to call “Macho-Eco.” Guys don’t have to sacrifice their machismo to do good anymore. I love this trend because as people get more and more mindful of being green, they are becoming more discerning about the eco products they buy. We don’t all want to look like tree huggers, even if we secretly are on the inside. So, I compiled a list of some of my favorite “Macho-Eco” gifts to inspire your eco-dude to look good and be green at the same time. Enjoy!

One line I love is Timberland Earthkeepers. This branch of the popular brand is all made of environmentally conscious materials, some organic, some being recycled. They are slightly more expensive than the average Timberland boots, but are totally worth it. Bonus: the shoes are both impeccably made and very stylish.

Another amazing line for cool Eco-gear is Sprout Watches. I like this one for guys with its classic olive band (completely bio-degradable) and its cool cork dial. They come in a myriad of colors, so there is a style for everyone in your life.

Music lovers will appreciate the House of Marley Stir It Up Headphones. Made from recycled aluminum and plastic, these headphones are guaranteed to look good AND sound good.

Looking for something slightly more dashing? The Jack Black Core Collection features three of the Eco-conscious company’s best-selling skincare products including: beard lube, facial cleanser and a moisturizer.
