The Starter Kit for Change might be the simplest way to give a loved one a little nudge in the it’s-easy-being-green direction.
Each box is $46 and includes an instructional booklet, an Arbor Day seedling, gratitude cards, a Sudoku booklet, a journal, a recycled pencil, a compact fluorescent light bulb, Fair trade hot chocolate, one tote bag, and a charity envelope.
This little kit is almost too good to be true. The box, pencil, tote bag, and all paper products are made from recycled materials. The journal is made from the shavings of the Lokta (rice) bush. The tags are made from Lokta paper embedded with flower seeds. The string, ribbon, and cellophane bag are biodegradable.
Del Harley and Melanie Monroe created the Starter Kit for Change. A portion of the proceeds benefit Action Against Hunger.
