Green Gifts under $25: Exuberant recycled tote


You'll certainly get an "oh my!" when this gift is opened. Since this bag is made from a piece of a recycled banner, the vinyl is sturdy and waterproof. That makes it perfect for damp swimsuits, drippy groceries, muddy picnics. It would also make an ideal alternative diaper bag for moms who like to customize their carry-alongs. They'll never have to worry about dirty nappies or sticky fingers around this tote -- just wipe it down or wash it out, and it's good as new!

Like the diaper bag idea, and know someone who's going to need all the basics soon? Make a full gift of it, by adding an organic folded changing pad and some home made baby wipes. Your soon-to-be mom will be set to hit the ground running!

Recycled "Oh my!" banner tote, $20. Perfect for new moms who like to stand out from the crowd.

What a great idea. I drive through my town and look at all the banners the Chamber of Commerce puts up for parades and street fairs and other events. I'm always wondering what happens to all that material. I'll have to pass the word to them.
