1. Dryer Balls. Find them at Target for under $5 for a set of two. As an added bonus, they are the right size to be used as a stocking stuffer. And they last for ages. Mine actually help my clothes get dried about 15 minutes more quickly than if I don't use them - and saving energy makes me happy!
3. Mesh produce bags by Flip and Tumble. Yet another way to cut down on the overuse of plastics in our world. Light and easy to use, just toss them in the wash after shopping. $10.95 for a set of 5.
7. A Trader Joe's gift card. Because you can't go wrong with gift cards and - let's face it - you can't go wrong with Trader Joe's. (Dear Trader Joe's: All I want for Christmas is for you to build a store in Roanoke, Virginia).
8. Shaklee Basic H2 cleaning product. A little goes a long way, and a bottle will last for ages! Plus, you can use it on anything, and it doesn't have a bunch of nasty chemicals. You'll also be supporting a really awesome business that is running a 'net-zero impact on the environment' company.
10. Reusable lunch containers. There are so many fun choices out there - and anything that cuts down on plastic sandwich baggies is a win-win situation. One of our current favorites is the Fit & Fresh Kid's Little Dipper. It has a section to go in the freezer to keep cold before assembly, and then a little compartment to put dips in. It's also BPA free. Pierce especially loves to take it to school stuffed with apples and peanut butter for dipping. $10 for a set of 4.
