Green, Good and Fashionable!

Looking for last minute gift ideas? Well I have a some suggestions for you. Green and Good Gift Guide

Treehugger.com (http://www.treehugger.com/giftguide/) is dedicated to driving sustainability mainstream.  Their website features a green gift guide. All of these gifts — over 100 in 10 categories — are carefully curated for thoughtfulness, usefulness, durability, and longevity.  And all have minimum impact on our earth. Now that’s the gift that keeps on giving.

Half United (http://halfunited.com/shop/) is a clothing and accessories company. Half of the profits from each product they sell go directly towards feeding hungry children in need.  The company is based out of North Carolina and they give proceeds back to organizations in their state and globally.

FEED (http://feedproject.com/) began in 2006 when model and activist Lauren Bush designed a bag to benefit the United Nations World Food Programme’s (WFP) School Feeding program. She first created the FEED 1 bag, a reversible burlap and organic cotton bag reminiscent of the bags of food distributed by WFP, to help raise funds and awareness around these school feeding operations. It was stamped with “FEED the children of the world” and the number ‘1’ to signify that each bag feeds one child in school for one year.

To date, FEED has provided over 60 million school meals to children around the world through WFP.  Bags may be purchased now that provides meals in the USA and even specific cities in the USA. The FEED website has many great FEED bag options and jewelry to select from that feed a hungry child.

My last pick for good deed and style is Toms, One for One movement (http://toms.com), In 2006, Blake Mycoskie traveled to Argentina and found that many children had no shoes to protect their feet. Wanting to help, he created TOMS Shoes, a company that would match every pair of shoes purchased with a pair of new shoes given to a child in need. Today, Toms shoes gives to children in need all over the world. The company has also started Toms glasses which donate a pair of reading for every pair sold.

So for that last minute gift…make it green, good and fashionable! Kathy, Fit Fashionista
