The Best Green Gifts Under $500

2011 Green Gift Guide

Some occasions call for a very special gift, and if you are planning on spending a bit more, you may as well spend well. Here we have rounded up the best eco-friendly, healthy, gifts all under $500. Some, like the cast iron tea pot or the handmade soap stone stock pot will last a lifetime and encourage the recipient to prepare meals at home. A membership to a CSA is a fantastic way to support local farmers and give the gift of fresh produce or flowers. Spending upwards of $500 on a holiday gift might not be possible for everyone, but for those who are able, spending wisely can encourage a healthy eco lifestyle for the recipient and support good causes.
