Anytime you get a gift through Eartheasy you are supporting a member of the Better Business Bureau, of Green America and of US EPA Watersense. The site is carbon neutral via purchased offsets and for each gift you buy through them a tree is planted by the Trees for the Future Foundation. Here are some of the best eco-friendly presents we found in today’s Greener Giving post.
Laid in hand crafted, Forestry Stewardship Council walnut or ash, the Vers 1Q Bluetooth speakers have a natural look and a great sound. They have a nine-hour battery life and can connect to music players with Bluetooth or an AUX plug-in. They’re small, cordless and come with a cotton carrying bag. Simply power-on, pair and play!
Help a friend get their wilderness adventure started with the battery-free LifeStraw® water filter. Small, lightweight, durable and BPA-free, you can take this incredible tool anywhere. Hikers and campers can now filter out water-borne parasites and bacteria without the need for iodine drops or boiling. This invention was also designed for people who face a constant struggle to access clean drinking water. For each LifeStraw® filter purchased, LifeStraw® donates a school-year’s worth of clean drinking water to a child in Africa. In 2014, LifeStraw purchases gave 157,000 Kenyan children access to clean drinking water. The LifeStraw® has been recognized by Time Magazine as a “Best Invention of 2005” and by Saatchi and Saatchi in 2008, from whom they won the “World Changing Ideas” award.
Improve air quality and beautify a wall with a Wally One Woolly Pocket. Just place the soil and plants or seeds inside the pouch, hang it as you would a painting, and watch it grow. The back panel is waterproof so you can grow herbs or flowers inside. A bonus: the pouches are made from 100% recycled plastic! Check out the Wally One site for more sizes and other options for sustainable presents.
