Rainforest Alliance’s Annual Green Giving Guide

December 1, 2011

This holiday season give a gift that counts. When you choose products bearing the Rainforest Alliance Certified™ seal and/or the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) logo -- including coffee, tea, chocolate, flowers, greeting cards and furniture -- you’re supporting farmers, foresters and tour operators who have adopted sustainable practices that improve their local communities, protect wildlife and conserve water and soil.

Check out our Green Giving Guide for the environmentally savvy:

For the Parents

Do they like to garden? Give them a way to tend to their greens through the winter with a SunPod mini greenhouse, made with FSC-certified wood.

For the Kids

Foster their creative spirit with an Eco Tots easel made from FSC-certified wood. Be sure to include FSC-certified paper so they can make art the sustainable way!

For the Tech Savvy
