Green With Renvy’s Eco Gift Guide-Part 1

Dec 2011

I know I’ve put a lot of energy into shop local/handmade of late, but I realize that not everyone is lucky enough to have the opportunity to do so.  For you folks, I have put together an eco-friendly gift guide for a bit of internet shopping.  Gifts with pizazz that are recycled, up cycled and a few things in between. Today, it’s gifts for gardeners, travelers and DIYer’s.  Tomorrow I’ll be back with Part 2-gifts for men, hard to shop for friends and foodies.
