Having this charger would make me happy because I could scroll through instagram more and do it without hurting the planet.

If they don’t kill these plants, it could help to have some radishes and pea shoots growing in their tiny kitchen.  Eat those greens, kids.

Adopt an Animal!!!

Adopt an animal through the World Wildlife Fund. The money goes to a WWF general fund, instead of directly to the aid of a specific species, but it’s still a worthy donation! And you get a stuffed animal when you donate. College grads need those, even if they tell you otherwise.

Reusable Straws

Keep that graduate from destroying the planet with plastic by giving them reusable straws. Give them the ability to drink their morning smoothies without choking a sad turtle.

Donate to the National Resources Defense Council

The NRDC offers all kinds of donation options, including “Otter Keeper,” where your donation goes towards saving marine life. This is good. You should probably donate to them no matter what, just saying.

Recycled Jewelry


Etsy has a great collection of recycled jewelry, from cufflinks made from vintage typwriter keys to earrings made from recylced soda cans. Give it a gander.
