Like Kermit, Going Green: "Shopping"

I started shopping online for some of my Christmas stuff today. I am really going to try to go as sustainable as possible. Either fair trade, hand made, upcycled or recycled (helllooo Goodwill!) or experience based. We will see how it goes, but here are some of the sites to get you started if you'd like to follow along on my journey...

Goodwill online has some of the coolest finds. You can score some of the most unique, fun vintage things on this site- it's all the funky stuff from Goodwill but from the comfort of your cozy couch! LOVE it!

Swap Mamas is kinda sorta like Craigslist except for Mama's and more wholesome.

Ten Thousand Villages is an exceptional source for unique, handmade gifts, jewelry, home decor and personal accessories that encourages artisan partners to use environmentally friendly processes, sustainable natural resources and recycled materials to ensure each product offered has been crafted responsibly.

Just Between Friends Online Consignment offers quality children's, teens, and maternity consignment sales. Nothing around here right now but it looks like a supercool franchise idea.

I plan on making lots of the gifts and will post some of those ideas as I complete the. Biting off more than I can chew????

    You are definitely a super shopper---and a fantastic Mom to be so organized.
