The Everyday Advocate series is all about finding ways to do good in your real life. Here’s my gift guide for grown ups; click on the photo to visit the product website. You can see what I found for kids here. And all the gift ideas I find will also be on Pinterest.
Let me kick off with coffee. Last year’s guide told you how I buy coffee at Sprout’s now, because it’s organic, shade grown and Fair Trade. I just couldn’t find another coffee source I felt right about recommending. That has been remedied.
As Green As It Gets supports coffee growers in Guatemala, sending $10 from each $12 bag to the farmer. (A typical grower for a major distributor would get $2.50.)
The other $2 goes to Mission Impact, a community development organization. My friend Michelle and her husband Gerber work for MI, who, among other things, help families build clean water filters for their homes.
As Green As It Gets also offers choices for the roast that you get, in case, for some reason beyond my comprehension, you don’t want the dark roast.
And here are some other great gift ideas. Clicking on any of the photos will take you to the product.
