(green) gifts under $50

If you’d like to shop consciously this holiday season, try Patagonia. This fantastic outdoor clothing company takes econciousness to the next level. Here are just a FEW of the programs they initiated or currently take part in (see more here):

Conservacion Patagonica: A long-term effort by the company and its employees to create a new national park in (where else?) Patagonia, Chile

Common Threads: A garment recycling program where certain fabrics can be returned to the company for recycling

Organic Exchange: A non-profit organization committed to expanding organic agriculture, with a specific focus on increasing the production and use of organically grown fibers such as cotton.
