Day 52: Favor the Earth!

Since I’ve moved to the Chicago Now forum, many readers are new to this blog (?diary?).  If you’d like to know how this 365 day challenge of shopping small began, this will take you back to day 1.  Catch up on a few of our earlier favorites: Marcel’s Culinary Experience, Lola’s & Gigi’s, and Lemon Tree Grocer.

One common thread for all small business owners is their passion for their company.  What looks like a small shop to others is really the heart and soul of the owner.

I couldn’t not talk about my favorite eco-friendly business! So, today it’s my passion…Favor the Earth: earth-friendly gifts, favors, and treats. You’ll find unique gifts made by small companies conscious about their affect on the environment, and your health.

And, there’s something for everyone! Organic cotton blankets, Vegan nail polish, organic soaps & lotions, even fabulous hats & bags made from upcycled hockey gear.

Looking for eco-friendly promotional items for your company or school? Favor the Earth can help with those too!

Whether you’re looking for gluten-free goods, non-toxic toys, earth-friendly school & office supplies, or just fabulous products, Favor the Earth has what you need.

What’s your favorite earth-friendly item?
