Better Living: Great Eco-Gifts
Thursday, December 15, 2011
I do all my shopping locally so I can map out my plan, load the car up with reusable shopping bags, put on my most comfortable boots and let the shopping commence. I am on the hunt for earth friendly gifts that I can find in
Home Style, Providence
Owner Lisa Newman Paratore and her friendly staff will greet you with a smile and perhaps offer up a chair so you can check your list in comfort. Items I've got my on this season:
This chopstick basket which can be used for so many things like holding your fruit or as a colander. It folds up so it’s easy to store. It’s both green and practical.
Homestyle, 229 Westminster St, Providence.
The Smyle Store, East Greenwich
The Smyle Store, 229 Main St, East Greenwich.
Green Envy, Newport
If you’re in the mood for a lovely road trip, head to Newport and enjoy the beautiful holiday decorations on your way to the Green Envy Boutique. Gift categories include soy candles, clothing, skincare and accessories. My personal pick, the solar powered bags. You can charge your devices while soaking up the sun on a park bench. The perfect gift for the energy conscious loved one.
Green Envy, 223 Goddard Row, Newport.
Last but not least, for a great online option check out www.OnlyInRhodeIsland.com, where you'll find all natural soaps, bubble bath and bath salts. No chemicals and local too!
Now go get your green shopping on and maybe I’ll see you out there.
