What I’m Grateful for This Holiday Season

With all of the stress, over-consumption and waste this season can bring, now is a perfect time to go against the grain and make your holiday more conscious. Here are some products I’m grateful for that help me stay happy, healthy and green–even during the yuletide season.

Organic Flowers

Flowers are a great way to express gratitude to friends and family during the holidays. Unfortunately, the cut flower industry is notorious for polluting the planet with pesticides. This year, thank loved ones by ordering organic flowers, chocolates and gifts from Organic Bouquet, and Mother Earth will thank you.

A Grateful Body

Pampering your skin with toxin-free personal care products is a great way to cultivate an attitude of gratitude for your body and the environment. The GratefulBody organic skin care line’s 100% botanical ingredients smell great and nourish skin from the inside out. My fav: The Daily Facial Cleanser.

Vegetarian Delights

As a vegetarian, meat-filled holiday celebrations can be just a little scary. Make the veg-head in your family happy this season by ordering meat-free products from Turtle Island Foods. My favorite: Tasty Tofurky that comes stuffed with all the traditional fixin’s, including vegan giblets and even dressing.”
