What better way to remember your role in the fight for a healthy planet than relaxing on pillows decorated with maps of the world you want to protect?

Cath Young of My Bearded Pigeon uses organic materials that meet the Global Organic Textile Standard for ecology and social responsibility; she also donates some of the proceeds to Kiva, an anti-poverty organization.

Although Young is based in Australia, she only sells the pillow covers, which keeps postage and carbon emissions low. Stuffing pillows yourself is easy; you can even fill them with your own hair. (Map Pillow Covers, $58)
