In addition to being the season for giving, we believe the holidays should also be a time where we give back to the environment, in any little way that we can. Keep reading for four organic and sustainably manufactured gift ideas for the eco-conscious loved ones in your life.

Don’t let winter be the reason you serve store-bought herbs on your Christmas ham. This smart, self-watering system allows you to grow not only your own herbs anywhere inside your home, but also your other favorite plants, including seasonal fruit plants, such as strawberries.
