Holiday shopping

The holidays are here and the recent events such as our blackout and the Occupy movement brought some good points to light.  For one, we should always be prepared in case something unexpected happens.  If we prepare for it now then we will be in a position to say, “I expected this and I am prepared.”  Plus we should support our local economy and entrepreneurs by shopping local.  We like that 🙂  Shopping local is great, but combining that with shopping eco and smart is even better!

Come visit us and pick up some great gifts for your loved ones.  Shopping with us not only is treating your loved ones to gifts but also treating Mother Nature to one, too.

Personally, when the blackout happened, I was using my cell phone wisely because it was my only connection to the outside world.  Even if I had left the house that day with my charger, I still would of been using my battery life wisely because there was no where to charge it!  Bummer.  That can be avoided next time.

Goal Zero has lots of solar powered products so that we never have to be caught off guard.

We carry products to keep your cell phone, batteries, and laptops charged and we even have a hand crank flashlight.  All these products are good, too, if you have a loved one that loves to camp or spend lots of time in nature but still likes to be connected.

These small items are excellent stocking stuffers.  This Solar flashlight takes eco-friendly LED technology and makes it reliable as your adventures require. The flashlight/floodlight combo can be powered by its built-in solar panel, ac/dc input, or a hand crank. As versatile as you, the Solar Crank Flashlight by Goal Zero has a comfortable grip handle and a hands free hook.

The Guide 10 Plus USB Power Pack With 4 2000 mAh AA Batteries is an ultra lightweight USB solar charging system that fits in your pocket. Use as a single unit power pack to power your device or as a power source to recharge the batteries for use in any AA or AAA battery powered device.

More than likely the person you’re buying a gift for has it on their resolution list to EAT BETTER.  Encourage their healthy desires and get them a gift they can use to bring their yummy leftovers in.

Stainless, stylish & stackable! This 2-Tier Stainless Steel Tiffin Set (a nifty lunch box system that hails from India) is reusable, lightweight, and has a lid that doubles as a plate. It’s easy to carry and clean, but hard to live without. Great for both cold or hot food, and the planet, too.

The more we reuse the less waste and use we impact on the earth.  And plus, how cool is the person that travels around with their own utensils?!

We’ve got our travel mugs and our reusable shopping bags. How about a RePEat Bamboo Utensil Set  to round out the perfect toolkit for life on the go? A handy carabiner on the back lets you clip and carry a fork, knife, spoon and chopsticks wherever they may roam. Perfect for a busy lifestyle and our precious planet.

And since we are talking reusable, how about a Klean Kanteen stainless steel water bottle?  No more plastic bottles filling up our landfills, just add your favorite beverage into your own Kanteen and feel good about what you are drinking.

We have all sorts of accessory parts so you can customize your bottle to your liking, plus we even have a sippy cup for a baby.  What a gift to give someone stainless steel rather than plastic.

Instead of wrapping paper you could put all these gifts inside of a beautiful hemp backpack, stuffed full with the best gifts ever!

This is a Sativa Bag, but we have lots to choose from.

And please, please, PLEASE don’t forget the gift of chocolate.
