Have you got your Green Father's Day Gift?

This week is mostly about Fathers.  Yesterday we pretty much did the “fashion” with NUMBER:lab.  So easy to like and to wear their clothing!  Todays post is about other fun eco gifts for Dad. This is a fun list combined from Inhabitots Green Father’s Day Gift Guide (by Desmond Williams, 06/13/10) and Ecouterrs – 14 Green Father’s Day Gifts for Eco-Savvy Dads (by Jasmin Malik Chua, 06/12/11.)  Although it may not be the right gift for your dad it makes for some fun reading! 

“Dads have come a long way since the days of the stereotypical cigar chomping, garage tinkering, newspaper-at-the-breakfast-table men of the recent past. Nowadays more and more dads are becoming nurturing, early adapting, fashion forward, artistic, eco-responsible individuals. In other words, we’re not our dads dads. So on this Fathers Day let’s celebrate with green-minded, stylish, thoughtful gifts that fit the bill. From recycled necktie wallets to wooden harddrives, here are a few of our favorite eco gifts for the modern dad.” Pictures above- links below.
