Weve packed so much good green stuff into this one item that youll have to get a barrel, not a basket, to carry it all. Luckily, thats the first item on the list:
Rain barrel: Is keeping your lawn lush and green taking a toll on your water bill? Quit wasting the citys water supply and get this 55-gallon rain barrel (named Best of the Bays "Best Green Trend") from Rising Force Construction. Comes complete with attachments and ready for setup so you can start collecting rain water runoff right away to keep your petunias perky. (Actual color will be black.)
One-of-a-kind set of eco-friendly holiday greeting cards (created just for this auction): A set of 12 flat cards with envelopes, designed by Tweeprints especially for this auction. Tweeprints uses recycled eco paper, enclosed in 100 percent post-consumer recycled content envelopes and packaged using biodegradable clear bags manufactured from plants. This exclusive design won't be sold anywhere else!
A $25 gift certificate from WhyNot Boutique: One of the greenest shops around, with every kind of gift from candles to crafts to jewelry to elephant-poo paper (yes, we said elephant-poo paper).
Recycled juice box sling bag: Keep those non-biodegradable juice pouches out of the landfill and wear them on your shoulder instead. The bag from GoGreenItems.com is primarily blue, 7H x 7L with a 19.5 strap.
Green gift basket from Tampa Street Market: A green grab bag with such goodies as an Envirosax reusable, foldable shopping bag; a wirebound Papergeist journal made by a local artist group in Tampa from reused paper with a cover made from record album covers; a bottle opener repurposed from a bike chain; and a clean-burning soy candle.
A Jimi Hendrix T-shirt thats literally green: A made-in-Alabama organic cotton tee (adult XL) dyed in clay and emblazoned with an image of Jimi Hendrix as a tree, from Its Our Nature.
