Here are some ideas for green stockingfillers this Xmas. Every little bit helps.

Decorous Recycled Glass Tea Light Holder.

These tea light holders are really cute and would make a lovely stocking filler. They can be used all year round, either in winter for lighting up your fireplace and windowsills with a cosy glow, or in summer, hanging from trees in the garden to create a beautiful light and ambience. They are made in Spain from 100% post-consumer recycled glass and brought to the UK by sea-freight to minimise carbon emissions in transport.

Available in blue, pink and clear glass with one tea light included. £5.00 each from Biome Lifestyle.

Stingray Solar Powered Pocket Torch

This dinky little torch (6,6 x 3,8 x 1,4 cm) will give its owner the the freedom of mobile light wherever they go. The powerful solar cells of the Stingray charge the internal eco-friendly rechargeable battery quickly and efficiently. And the Stingray gives a powerful light with 2 LED’s using the latest lighting technology.

Because of its compact size the Stingray can fit into any pocket or be attached to a key ring ready for use whenever or wherever you need a powerful light. It also fits easily into Xmas stockings.

£3.87 from Ecotopia.

Drumstick Pencils

These are the perfect stockingfiller for type of person that picks up a pair of office pencils and does an impromptu drum solo, like they’re playing to a crowd of thousands- not a water cooler and the photocopier.

Excellent for musical kids or adults who haven’t grown out of the rock star dream.
