I know. I know. It is early, but we want to make sure you have some super sustainable gift ideas to make the holidays (holly daze) a little less frantic. FIRST, let me underscore that we here at the Green Divas want to promote a healthy, low-stress holiday season that involves buying less, making more (DIY), and buying local. But when you do buy a gift, please try to make it as sustainably made, thoughtful and of course that it promotes a healthier, greener lifestyle!
The first of our Green Divas Holly Daze Eco-Friendly Gift Guide series, which will include videos and posts with ideas for Green Dudes (this one), Green Divas (of course), everyone (including pets), AND of course a special DIY gift guide for EASY holiday gift projects. Watch part 1 of the video series here, then look below for more details on each product we talk about . . .

For the guerilla urban gardener or the green dude that lives anywhere and wants to have fun with a slingshot and make more cool green wherever he goes. Great stocking stuffer. They have a variety of regionally specific seed bombs, ones for pets, and also holiday seed bombs that plant fir trees!
