Greener Holiday Shopping with Rodale’s

Greener Holiday Shopping with Rodale's

Thank you to Rodale’s for sponsoring this post and for providing me with a couple of product samples. 

For those of us striving to live greener, healthier lives, we know that it can be hard to find a balance between our values and those of other people in our lives. You can’t just push green onto other people. Still, when it comes to gift giving, I find it a fun challenge to choose “better” gifts that are still cool enough to avoid being labeled hippie or health-nut.

RodalesRodale’s, “a shopping destination where inspired design meets healthy living” is just the place to get those sneaky kinds of gifts. You’ll find sustainable fashion, non-toxic beauty products, high quality kitchen tools, eco accessories, organic food products, safer kids toys and much more. Go ahead and buy something for your biggest sceptic – they’ll never know the difference!
