Spring is in the air and it’s the perfect time to give gifts to grow, don’t you think? And I have just the thing to help you go green with your gift ideas…the Growbottle herb garden.  

Apart from spring, what prompted the idea of eco-friendly gifts to grow was an old episode of the reality series ‘Rich Bride, Poor Bride’ I watched a while ago. The couple in that particular episode were planning a green wedding. Right from donating money to save a forest and giving plants as wedding favours to buying locally produced wine and renting a hybrid car – it was all about being eco-friendly and environment conscious. 

Go green with eco friendly gifts this spring. Right time for planting herbs.

That’s where the Growbottle fits in nicely with the idea of giving a gift that’s eco-friendly and also one that’s meant to grow…literally. The Growbottle is an indoor herb garden made from recycled wine bottles. It’s a perfect gift for friends and family who are pro-green and have a green thumb. Take your pick from the set of Organic Basil, Organic Chive, Heirloom Mint, Organic Oregano, or Organic Parsley. Each set comes with soilless growing mix, wool wick, plant nutrient, cork coaster, and seeds. What’s more you can reuse the bottles to plant new herbs. The Growbottle is available at Uncommon Goods and Earth Easy.

Here are creative ways to go green with eco friendly gifts to grow.

Isn’t this a perfect way to go green with your gifts?
