Green America: Growing the Green Economy for People and the Planet


Gifts That Are Good for People and the Planet

The best gifts are the ones that are made with love. This year, you can choose from thousands of gifts from our certified green businesses—working to restore the planet and provide fair labor that lifts people up.

Green America’s ‘Good Green Gifts’ guide is a sampling of the amazing products and services you can find from businesses that share your values. So if you choose to buy gifts this holiday season, know that you can make a difference with every purchase.
