Stocking Stuffers

Before your XMAS shopping's done,
Stuff every stocking full of fun.
Make sure the "stuff" you stuff is green
To keep our landfills few and lean!

This holiday, lessen your Christmas stocking's footprint by choosing sustainable stocking stuffers for your family.  These mini-gifts are not only creative and useful, but they're Earth-approved.

  • Gifts for gardeners and cooks - These Matchstick Herb Gardens are just the right size for their stockings and your wallet!  Packets of flower seeds are also a creative earth-friendly idea.
  • Warm feet - If you're wondering how best to bulk up your family's stockings this year, don't fret - just put a sock in it!  Eco-friendly socks made from hemp and recycled fibers are easy green gifts that everyone can use to warm their tootsies this winter.
  • Music and movie downloads - Encourage friends and family to quit buying CDs and DVDs and start downloading!  iTunes gift cards and Netflix gift subscriptions are fabulous ways to promote sustainable entertainment over hoarding plastic jewel cases.
  • Natural bath products - Everyone loves their morning shower even more with products that pamper them, so complete your Christmas shopping by picking up some all-natural soaps, cleansers and other toiletries.

If you're still not sure how to stuff the stocking of that person who has everything, scan Inhabitat's creative sustainable stocking stuffer list from 2007.

Made from organic evaporated cane juice, brown rice syrup, fruit juice and natural peppermint oil, your family's greener stockings would not be complete without these organic candy canes.
