Giving Forward

This month we look forward to a thankful time, a chance to show others gratitude and kindness.


For many of us, it’s also the beginning of a season of giving.


This year give a gift that keeps on giving. From teacher gifts to a little something for a party host, small gestures go a long way. Check out these great ideas that will keep giving well into the new year—and beyond.
           

The Giving Tree

Forests around the world are disappearing and you can do something about it, in the name of another. Make a donation to Plant a Billion Trees and help The Nature Conservancy reach its goal to plant a billion trees in the United States, Asia and Brazil by 2025. PlantaBillion.org

 



Recycle, Grow, Repeat

Plant organic basil or oregano seeds in a recycled Potting Shed Creations Grow Bottle and watch them flourish using basic hydroponics. Everything is included to yield your favorite herb indoors within six weeks. Then simply wash the bottle, rinse and repeat. EarthEasy.com
 

 


Take Care Package

Got a case of the crafties? Assemble a few of your favorite all-natural beauty things into a thoughtful gift. At the top of our list is Kari Gran’s skin care line. While the cleanser and moisturizer are 100 percent purely organic and great for the body, the Lip Whip lip balm (available in cinnamon or peppermint) is the secret to softer lips. KariGran.com

 


Gifts with a Purpose

In 2006, jewelry designer and California native Stephanie Pollaro was living in India and witnessed the atrocities of human trafficking first hand. Driven to do something about it, she launched Purpose Jewelry several years later through her non-profit, International Sanctuary, with victims by her side. Today, the company continues to teach survivors a craft they can utilize to support themselves. All proceeds fund efforts to end modern-day slavery. PurposeJewelry.org

 

 

LooHoos for the Holidays

Just in time for the holidays: LooHoo Wool Dryer Balls in festive colors. This year’s holiday hues include red, green and cream. Available in three-packs, the wool dryer balls are great for the hostess with the environmentally friendly mostest. You can also participate in The Giving Project by re-investing the money you save from using LooHoos to support your local communities. Loo-Hoo.com
