I’ve never been shy about telling you when I love (or despise) something and I recently learned about one of the coolest things on the planet… and considering the season of giving, I absolutely have to share this one and give it some MomGoesGreen love!
It’s called the “Starter Kit for Change” and it contains some of the most thoughtful, eco-friendly items to get anyone and everyone started on the road to “green thinking”.
- a reusable tote bag (“reuse”)
- an arbor day tree seedling (“plant”)
- fair trade hot chocolate (“be fair”)
- a treeless journal (“write”)
- a Sudoku booklet with a recycled pencil (“think”)
- a compact fluorescent light bulb (“switch”)
- gratitude cards (“be grateful”)
- an envelope to help end hunger (“give”)
They thought of everything and I’m not exaggerating when I say that. The gift box and paper they come in are recycled, the ribbon and bag are biodegradable, the tags are embedded with flower seeds (they can actually be planted!) and an enclosed booklet explains the importance and impact of every element included.
The reusable bags are even made from fabric remnants and no two are alike (and they’re SO much more stylish than the cheap-o bags!). Plus, every bag is inscribed with Mahatma Gandhi’s inspirational quote: “We must be the change we wish to see in the world.” Doesn’t that describe the mission we all wish to accomplish? Del and Melanie are on this mission too… to educate, motivate and activate CHANGE! Plus they are donating a portion of the proceeds to Action Against Hunger.
This is truly the coolest thing I have yet to see…The “Starter Kit for Change” is the gift of going green! And if I got this from someone, I would be thrilled… actually, I got this gift for myself and now I think I’m one pretty cool gift-giver too!
