The holidays are right around the corner! Have you found any unique, green gifts this year? Last weekend, the Eco Gift Festival in Santa Monica, California showcased some of the world's best earth-friendly gifts, food, speakers and music.
Throughout the week, we'd love to share with you some perfect gifts ideas that are both affordable and earth friendly.
Today: Teatulia Tea, Hugo Naturals and Planet Flops.
The name comes from the region in North Bangladesh where the tea is grown. Native men and women who belong to this co-op benefit from the “established revolutionary education, health and cattle-lending programs.” The community prospers from the tea garden and have we mentioned it tastes amazing?

“Be good to your skin, be good to the earth…” Hugo’s products are all natural and created here in the U.S. They range from natural shampoos and conditioners to lotions, soaps and lip balms -- all of which smell incredible, feel so light, and are noticeably effective. Check out http://www.hugonaturals.com/ and learn more about Hugo’s luxurious products.
Created by a podiatrist, FLOPS are soft, comfortable, and durable. What else do you need in a flip-flop? Environmentally sustainable? Well you can add that on to the list too! FLOPS are constructed from natural Brazilian rubber derived from rubber trees in the rainforest (the trees are not cut down) and are bio-degradable.
