Founded in 2009, Green Ostrich seeks to be the green shopping alternative to brick-and-mortar stores that offer little in the way of sustainable products. The selection at the Pennsylvania-based green store is broad, but they seem to be especially strong in green gifts for kids and school supplies, as well as interesting low-tech and electronic gadgets like an LCD writing tablet, wind-up flashlights and portable mp3 speakers.
A veritable dinosaur in terms of online retailing, Uncommon Goods has been a favorite green shop since it was founded in New York City in 1999. And budget-conscious folks seeking a gift for a loved one (or themselves) could do a lot worse than this store, which stocks dozens of clever items for under $50, with many selling for less than $25. Jewelery, home and kitchen accessories, and bed and bath products make Uncommon Goods an ideal place to do your green shopping.
5. Cool Planet
Products with a purpose -- that's the driving energy behind online retailer Cool Planet.

If you have a dog or a dog-owner on your gift list -- or if you just want a chew toy for yourself -- you can't beat Planet Dog. Many of their balls, tug-of-war ropes, bones and other pet toys are 100% recyclable and made from post-production material that would otherwise be discarded. (You can even return your old toys to them for recycling.) In addition to hemp collars and leashes, they also have grain-free dog snacks (but no dog food), as well as all-organic cotton T-shirts for humans and other species.
