Eco Friendly Gifts Ideas: Green gift ideas for your eco warrior friends and family. The perfect sustainable gifts that you can buy online.
I know that sometimes your eco friendly family member or friend may be a bit confusing to you. What can you buy them for a gift that they’ll actually use? Why are they giving you crazy eyes for making them a disposable diaper cake for their baby shower?
I admit, I’m that friend/family member. My family came to town in October and I was going behind them, picking recyclables, reusables, and compostables out of the garbage can and they’re staring at me in horror.
Needless to say, I was considering what type of gift guides I wanted to put together this year for my blog and an ecofriendly guide was my FAVORITE idea. I just put together my personal wish list of green gifts and here it is… wink wink hint hint to my family who is wondering what to get me this year!

- I carry them *everywhere.* I’ve found that I prefer water bottles with a spout because they’re easier to clean and less apt to get mold inside the straw. I don’t love how heavy the stainless steel ones are, but you really can’t beat how cool and fresh they keep the water.

But you can also buy a setup. These setups allow you to keep your fish and also a small garden area over the fish tank… there’s a grow light and a water pump that cycles dirty water into the plants.
Now, feel free to go for the gold and setup a huge one in the backyard greenhouse with tilapia, chickens, goats, and a whole ecosystem like something from a scifi movie (my dream setup)… but for those with limited funds, these indoor setups are pretty neat.
