While the consumption-driven electronics industry often clashes with ideas of sustainability and environmentalism, the fact is we live in the age of the computer, where we all have smartphones and tablets and rely on apps that do anything and everything for us.

The good news is there are plenty of products out there that defy the usual mandate of planned obsolescence and ubiquitous e-waste.

Find a gift here for your favorite green geek, ranging from a biodegradable watch to the newest e-reader to cork and recycled plastic iPad cases, ninja flash drives, and a computer from the greenest company in the country.

And don't miss the rest of our gift guides, launching through November 8. --Produced by Mairi Beautyman
