Yep, it’s December already, how fast the year goes eh? Anyway here’s another Green Store News update for you.

Penguin torch

Kids, kids, kids
Kids love getting presents (who doesn’t?), and Nigel’s Eco Store is doing its best to make it easy to get them something eco-friendly. There’s the lovely Penguin Torch pictured, which is powered by winding up or even shaking.

There’s also the intriguingly-named Mr Robot Head and the Solar Powered Toy Aircraft Kit which I have a feeling is for adults really.

Wottle

 
 

What’s a Wottle?
It’s the new, designer eco water bottle, that’s what a Wottle is. Available at Ethical Superstore the Wottle is designed by er designer Orla Kiely and BRITA, the water filter company. Made from 100% recycled materials, that’s about all you can say about it really until we can test and review it. Oh, it’s £7.99.

  1. Great post – I love the penguin torch though I think I might just steal it for myself rather than give it to the kids.
    I love the idea of eco-friendly products as gifts for christmas and this year we are even making some!
