Go Green this Christmas at Britain’s Greenest Gift Shop – for a wide range of gifts for all the family
The CAT shop is known for its commitment to stocking green, ethical products. Each product is carefully selected to ensure that it not only meets the highest environmental standards but also takes into account ethical and social considerations.
“We are finding that more and more people are wanting to buy green at Christmas, they are concerned about the environment and want to make sure that their Christmas gift does not cost the earth.” Beth Bennet, Centre for Alternative Technology.
This year the CAT shop has a wide range of gifts on offer – for everybody from your granny to your next-door neighbour. Quirky green gifts that stand out are the foldable portable wood burner which really does pack down into a small case, the stove top eco fan to maximize heat distribution from your burner and the plumen eco light bulb described by Beth Bennett as “a beautiful low energy light bulb.”
The CAT garden birds gift set is ideal for the budding bird watcher in your family, consisting of a bird feeder, birdseed and a colourful bird identification book. Indoor gifts include a wide range of craft books- such as ‘Sweater Surgery’ – a book on how to turn old jumpers into new things, or Green crafts for kids– all with tonnes of ideas for things to do in those cold, winter nights.
For older kids the range of CAT solar toys are both educational and fun- teaching young people about the power of the sun. Younger ones will enjoy CAT’s fantastic range of Everearth kids wooden toys, including an organic farm with compost, Noah’s ark and pull-along toys.
A superb gift for all the family is the new Go green self-sufficiency board. Using a wheelbarrow, the player moves around the board collecting fruit, vegetables, pigs and chickens in your quest to become self-sufficient. It’s fun and educational, and can be played by all ages!
“ The great advantage of green products is that they are well made, ethical, durable and often save you money- they make fantastic presents, particularly in the current economic climate.”
