Eco-Humanity Gift Challenge Ideas List
People participating in the Eco-Humanity Gift Challenge have suggested the following sites for Christmas Shopping.
- Project 18: Many of you will no doubt be familiar with Cate Bolt’s charity work. If not, head across to Project 18: and have a look.
- Cat Protection Op Shop: I think I’ll have a fossick in Cat Protection’s Op Shop at 105 King St, Enmore Sydney. My beautiful girls, Licorice and Saffron, were cared for by CPS before I adopted them so it seems a good place to start my shopping.
- Made It and Etsy: These two sites have been suggested by Naomi. (Thank you!) http://www.madeit.com.au/ and http://www.etsy.com. Naomi also suggests Biome: natural skin care and green cleaning products
And some more suggestions courtesy of Yendi:
- E-string Bags. Mum just purchased some of these – very quick service. www.estringbags.com.au (Mum just purchased some of these string bags: quick service).
- Ethical Gifts: this website has original recycled rubber animal sculptures. The rubber is collected from beaches on the African Coast. I’ve never seen anything like them before. Web address is www.ethicalgifts.net.au
- Flying Penguin: for kids toys and games (0 to 11 years) this is a fabulous site. I am certainly going to be getting a gift for my 3 year old nephew from here. If toys are made of wood, for every tree cut down, two are planted in its place. Web: www.flyingpenguin.com.au Address: Shop 1, 359 King St Newtown 2042.
And yet there’s more:
- Sun Shiny Day: Ethical and sustainable gifts with a percentage of profits going to charity. Worth a look here.
