Looking for cute green gifts that are unique, affordable and -- not crunchy looking? Here's a top 10 guide to green gifts that'll turn heads -- and hopefully turn your friends into happy environmentalists. May all your holidays be green --
For the would-be gardener: Egg Plant. Anyone with a window can hatch a cute little herb garden! This gift'll look pretty, clean the air a teensy bit, and then grow to flavor a good holiday dish. $12 at Branch.
For the bibliophile: Deep Economy by Bill Mckibben takes you through multiple, wide-ranging journeys: a year spent eating only local food, a scientific and historical look at the possibilities of a community-based, post-petroleum agriculture, an exploration of mass media and the outlook on local radio, and more. I loved it, and think everyone should read it! $25 in bookstores everywhere.
For the do-gooder: Plant 50 trees through Oxfam America, and feel good knowing they'll "produce not only life-sustaining crops like avocados and bananas, but they also provide much-needed shade for coffee and other staple plants, and prevent erosion." $30 at Oxfam America Unwrapped.
