"Eco-Packaging" Finalist: Little Animals
Finalist Jasmin Chua sent us something for the little ones as her entry into the contest - Little Animals organic cotton shirts. Described by the website as "tees for little humans", these shirts are uber-green (organic unbleached cotton, made in USA) down to the packaging. According to Jasmin, "They come in packaging made from corn-based plastic, a completely renewable and compostable resource. (You can also, as the website suggests, use the box to rein in rogue crayons.) The tag that comes with the packaging can easily be recycled. Even the ribbon is pretty eco-friendly since I don't know of anyone who doesn't save pieces of ribbon to reuse with other presents--it's one of those gifts that keeps giving."
