    4. A sleek compost bin with an adjustable air vent you can mount on your cabinet door if you prefer to keep it out of sight. (Though, it's far from an eyesore!)

    5. A roomy canvas tote to take along to the grocery store so there's no need to get a plastic bag at checkout.

    6. A 100% plastic-free candle with sustainable coconut wax that'll double as a nice glass after you've burned through it. (Or, you can return your used candles to the company for re-use.)

    10. A '70s inspired table lamp that'll be practical for not just your home (it's incredibly easy to assemble and comes with an excellent dimmer) but for the environment, too (it's made of sustainable plant polymers, like corn, sugarcane and sugar beets).

    14. An all-natural stain remover for anyone who cannot be trusted with a white shirt.

    15. A recycled gift wrap set embedded with hundreds of Wildflower seeds — just cover the paper with 1/8" of loose topsoil instead of tossing it in the trash — so the gift recipient will walk away with two gifts. Three, if they consider saving the earth one.
