More eco-groovy tips from Sierra Club for gifts that help the planet, and may convert your recipient to a greener lifestyle....

1. compact fluorescent light bulbs (Home Depot or www.1000bulbs.com )

2. reusuable shopping bags (many supermarkets carry them now, or try www.reusablebags.com )


3. rechargableable batteries and battery chargers ( Sundance Solar or stores like Target)


4.
earth-friendly cleaning and household products from www.seventhgeneration.com, or your local natural food store

5. LED or solar lights (we ordered LED headlamps online, Petzl brand)

6.
hand-cranked flashlights and radios (great for weather emergencies as well as earth-friendly)

7. rain barrels (especially valuable in areas hit by the current drought)

8. compost bins (available at many gardening centers)
