Gifts are a big part of the modern Christmas, on way you can make them more green is to buy them green gifts. Today I want to introduce you to a great “Eco” Store GetN’ Green It was started by co-founders Alexa Freeburg and Greg McMan and in Alexa’s words ” GetN’Green is our quest to do more – to help people make little choices that can make a big difference. Little by little, I learn more, Gregg learns more and we grow more.”
GetN’ Green has a lot of great products everything from Kleen Kanteens to Eco-Friendly Pet Toys, waste free lunch supplies and so much more. When I first found out about them I bought 2 of these ThinkSport Water Bottles (it was their steal of the week), They have a strainer on top so I use them to brew tea at work. You can check out their weekly steals on their home page in the upper right-hand corner.
I have also found my stocking stuffers! I’m so very excited about this. It’s called a SKOY Cloth, its absorbency power is 15 times its weight! If that wasn’t cool enough they are also cute. I mean check these out!
How fun is that? They are European made, and 100% biodegradable because it is made from a natural cotton and wood-based cellulose pulp. According to the website
SKOY cloth is a chlorine-free product using water-based colors and inks. After an independent composting test, SKOY cloth broke down completely within 5 weeks.
The SKOY cloth is long-lasting because of the wash ability feature. It dries quickly, so it is not a breeding ground for bacteria. Have you ever used your sponge, then smelled your hand and it reeked of horrible bacteria? That will never happen again if you microwave your SKOY cloth. It is also dishwasher and washer/dryer safe. Cleaning your SKOY cloth will keep it healthy and germ-free.
I have one of these and I keep it in my bathroom because our counter top gets water all over it when I’m washing my face. I just keep it under the sink and do a quick wipe up. No more grabbing a good towel or brushing the hair on the floor because it all sticks to the SKOY!
I’m buying myself a set today and another set to use as small Christmas gifts. Not to mention I’m going to put one in my work bag for those oopsies at the desk so I’m not using Kleenex.
The last item I’m going to talk about today is another very practical item. The Eco-Ditty Snack Size. I personally haven’t used this but Amy their Customer Service Manager said she uses hers daily “I can stick it in my purse with almonds, carrots etc for a snack on the go.” Why didn’t I think of that?!? They are lined with organic cotton and are made in Colorado. Check out this pretty little thing.
