Eco for Everyone

Earth Day is only one day away and while it still is a holiday that comes only one day a year, its message is something that should be celebrated year round. So what does it mean to celebrate Earth Day anyway? Does it mean you plant a tree? Bike to work? Start a compost heap in your backyard?

It’s about all of those things, but mostly it’s about changing the small stuff in your everyday routines. Whether it’s bringing your own bags to the grocery store, car-pooling or using natural products, you can celebrate Earth Day any way you want.

When it comes to gifting, I can go a little overboard in the Eco department. There are just so many cool new products out there that are both great gifts and are good for the earth.

So in honor of tomorrow’s holiday, here are some cool eco products we’ve been crushing on lately that are perfect for any occasion. Also check out our other Eco Gift Guides
