Give the gift of green - recycled wedding, graduation & housewarming gifts
For around the house or gift giving, there's always a greener option than buying new and an artsier alternative to mass production.
Got a recent high school grad in your life? Consider giving them a set of repurposed glass bottle tumblers for the new apartment or a recycled denim area rug for the dorm room.
salt & pepper shakers made from repurposed table legs. They look great and already come with a great "back story".
Quilts are another awesome tradition and a great wedding gift. If you can't make one yourself you can still give one to the newlyweds and rest assured they'll treasure it for years to come!
bench finely crafted from wine barrels as a gift to celebrate a house-warming has fabulous potential for becoming a treasured family piece.
In our fast-paced world with our busy lifestyles there just isn't enough time to make hand-crafted gifts ourselves for all those special occasions. But they can still be part of your gift giving style and another great way to support the economy and ease up on the environment.
