I don't know about you, but I remember when I was a child and Christmas Day was the most magical day of the year. Well, let's face it, it is the smiles on children's faces that really complete this wonderful time of year, whether its your own son or daughter, or a nephew or niece, or even a little sibling. Time to face something else; this day can easily become incredibly wasteful, not to mention all those plastic toys are damaging to little growing bodies. There is a Merry Eco-Friendly approach as always ^_^. And with these stuffed-animals I don't think you can really complain.

The Needlings have been a personal favourite of mine for a long time! I bought one of these adorable characters for my little sister last year for Christmas and she's completely in LOVE with it!! Each Needling Plush is individually hand-sewn and embroidered. To top it off Heather (the mastermind behind these cuties) has created individual names, personalities, and stories to go along with each one! I've spent hours just reading each story!

Sewn Natural makes the most adorable Organic Stuffed Animals I have ever seen! This Elephant and Monkey are personal favorites. They have a Fleecy Organic Cotton body and stuffed with natural wool! Available at their Etsy Store ^_^.

Pogo also has some adorable Eco-friendly Recycled/Bamboo-stuffed Bears that are of course handmade and can also be found on Etsy!!

I discovered this sweater felt baby Dino on Etsy by Natalie Mae as well and I couldn't refuse sharing this everyone! It is super cute and "has tiny Organic cotton yarn claws,shiny glass eyes, re purposed wool plaid tummy and is filled with soft and huggable bamboo batting." Not to mention is it One if a Kind!!

Animal-Friendly Wear

I've been dying to share these awesome shirts with all you Vegan and Animal-Friendly people out there ^_^ so I'm taking a moment to do so.

Rocky the Zombie is a favourite of mine from DIYScene. This shirt just went up, although I have been waiting anxiously for it for a while ^_^. "Buddy Not Beef" features the always awesome Zombie but this time with an adorable Moo Cow as well! Absolutely awesome and a must-have for an Vegan, it is also printed on Organic Cotton!!

Next, straight from the doors of PETA and their online catalog store ^_^

This shirt is a favourite to be sure! I love Skelanimals so when I discovered this shirt I almost died! "Animal Testing Breaks Hearts" is the logo with some adorable favourite characters--the Monkey is my favourite! ^_^

I remember seeing this shirt pop up a while back on Ebay and I'm so glad that I found it again! ^_^ This "I'm Scared of Needles Too!" shirt has a message that needs to be shouted from the rooftops and the Monkey is too cute! And yes, I'm sure you've now gathered, I love monkeys!

This is tooooooo adorable! I think everyone should own one! The message speaks for itself: "Hug me, don't club me"

This Shirt is just too awesome! This "You Eat What?" Organic Shirt is from Terre Rouge on Cafe Press and features some adorable wide-eyed animals. 0.0

Lastly, I leave you with a great big smile along with being Vegan. This "Go Vegan" shirt from Vegan Pimp on Cafe Press definitely does the trick...not to mention it is printed on Organic Cotton shirts!

The Eco-Friendly Christmas Gift Guide ^_^

It's that time of year, and I haven't had the chance to post yet so this is coming a little late, but still, better late than never, right?

I will be posting a couple times per week with more Eco-Friendly Goodness to add to your Holiday season this year! ^_^

We all know how wonderful Christmas is. Pretty Christmas trees and Christmas Lights. Smiles on little children's excited faces. The love of Family and Friends. But of course you can't forget, the materialistic Christmas Shopping. I'm not saying don't buy Christmas presents, but I am saying at this particular time of year it is good to step back and observe the environmental impact of the season. Plastic toys up the galore. Packaging that goes to waste. Gift tags for one time use. The zillion of un-eco-friendly prezzies.

Well, this year you can give Christmas Presents to loved ones and at the same time give a lil something for Mother Nature. Here are a few Must-Have Goodies!! ^_^

I'm starting with Self-Inflicted DIY. Why? Because Heather is an awesome fellow diyscener and because her shop ROCKS!! This woman can do Everything! She's super crafty, and is such a sweetheart! Do you need any more reasons to love this girl?! ~_^

Gift-Wrapping and cute Gift tags are important right? Well they're also wasteful! But You can now be eco-friendly in the best ways possible! Heather sells these amazing Christmas Gift Tags...

They are made from Recycled Paper and are PLANTABLE!!! So there is no wasting involved and give back to mother-nature! To top it off she makes these with her 3 year old daughter which is just adorable! Family time is important and so is being Eco-friendly and it seems Heather is super woman in both these aspects ^_^.

Want more from Self-Inflicted? Wellll she also makes the coolest Oatmeal Soaps that are VEGAN approved! You can scent them with a number of yummy flavors And they are available in several super fun shapes!

Just when you thought you'd seen everything, this crafty Gal Also has Organic Cotton Wrist-Warmers and Neck-Warmers in her shop!

In today's blog I am actually going to blog myself haha ~_^ I will be doing about two sellers per blogpost and will be posting a few times per week up until Christmas with more fun Gift ideas! ^_^

Alter-Eco Clothing is full of eco-friendly goodies, including Custom items if you can't find your size or color preference. You will not find a single item in the store that does not have Mother-Nature in mind. A couple recommendations?

Choose your color and your size with this cuddly Organic Cowl-Neck Shrug that can also be worn off the Shoulders! ^_^

Or go for something a little edgier with this ripped Blue & Burnt-Orange Bamboo top!
