Reusable Gift Ideas

Updated on December 31, 2010

Unique Reusable Gift Sets and Organic Products!

It's hard to find genuinely organic products and cool green gift ideas that are truly "green." Chartreuse's unqiue gift sets fill that gift giving void! With cool reusable sets that include reusable produce bags, renewable bamboo utensils and reusable water bottles, you can't go wrong. Or, go organic with earth friendly certified organic household cleaners that can be refilled over and over again! Read on to see some of the cool sets that Chartreuse has to offer.

To start your shopping experience,

simply click a product image or link, then click "shop for products"!

Buy a salad for lunch, grab an easy to use disposable utensil set and throw it away when you're done, right? Think about the waste this adds up to! Instead of bringing your clunky silverware to work, use these adorable bamboo utensils, conveniently stored in their own locally sewn (in Northern California) organic cotton container! Bamboo is lightweight, yet sturdy. It also grows very quickly to a height that's harvestable in only a few years time, so it's a renewable source (more so than other woods). Use them again and again and you'll be preventing plastic from entering landfills, not to mention have this handy set with you at all times in your bag or desk!

Get the Facts About Disposable Utensils

The US Population tosses out enough paper and plastic cups, forks and spoons every year to circle the equator 300 times!

Available in two amazing scents, Peppermint Zinger Set, Citrus and Ginger Set, these organic cleaners will have you hooked! With a natural cleansing aroma, the All Natural All Purpose Cleaner can be used on any water safe surface from wood to countertops and even fabric. The natural ingredients will remove stubborn stains, household germs and odors while still being safe enough to use on products like baby toys. These light, energizing scents smell natural, unlike the chemical cleansers you'll find in grocery stores, so they won't give you a headache. Another green element of this product: the refills! Chartreuse doesn't waste the resources and energy transporting water to you, so these are shipped in concentrate form. You provide the water! Refills are contained in handy pouches that you simply pour into the bottle and fill with water. By shipping the concentrate pouches in this form, the weight of the packages are much lighter, burn less gas during trasnport, and therefore are more environmentally friendly! Also included are the Organic Bathroom Cleaner and Glass Cleaner!

Reuse your bottles and order our economical refill pouches from TheGreenerMe! They're sold in a pre-measured concentrate. Each 4 oz concentrate pouch makes a 32 oz bottle.

Chartreuse's All Purpose Cleaner, Glass Cleaner, and Bathroom Cleaner packaged in an organic cotton mesh bag.

Deluxe Organic Body Care Set

$30.95

Included in this set are the luxurious foaming hand soap, stimulating organic shower gels, and refreshing herbal tea lotion in a matching organza bag. Leave your hands feeling soft and smooth without dangerous chemicals with foaming hand soap. Free of artificial colors, fragrances, preservatives, animal products, their byproducts, and never tested on animals.

Chartreuse's Organic Aromatherapy Shower Gels (included in this set!) contain certified organic coconut, olive and jojoba oils, to which we add organic aloe vera for its soothing properties and essential oils for their aromatherapy benefit.

Chartreuse's Organic Herbal Tea Lotion is the ultimate soothing hand, face and body lotion. It utilizes the natural healing and soothing properties of a carefully selected bouquet of organic teas and herbs to revitalize thirsty skin. It is pH balanced and gentle enough to use as facial moisturizer.

When it comes to personal care products, ignore the fluff and check the ingredients. We will seek out certified organic ingredients where ever possible, in balance with our goal of selling effective, reasonably price products.

Unlike the food industry...

...there are no regulations in the personal care industry around the term “organic”. You can name your company Suzie’s Organics without a single organic ingredient. So many in the industry has been clamoring for certification rules to separate the “real organics” from the “imposters”.

Righteous Reusables Deluxe Set

$90.95

Give that special person on your list a generous gift of all of our reusable options. The Butterfly Bag, Resuable Produce Bags, Bamboo Utensil Set, Water Bottle, and Ultra Compact Shopping Bag in a Gift Box made from recycled content. The Butterfly Bag features Six grocery-sized shopping bags tucked in this eco-chic purse. Made of natural cotton and recyclable nylon.

The reusable produce bags are perfect to curb your plastic use in the grocery store! Weighing less than an ounce, they won't add weight to the scale and can hold up to 8 pounds easily!

Also included is the cool bamboo utensil set (see above for a complete description!), as well as the ultra compact shopping bag. What else is included? A chic stainless steel bottle! Stainless steel bottles can handle a variety of liquids, including acidic fruit juices, and they won't leach chemicals into your beverage. Our bottles are lightweight, durable, and entirely chemical free. The perfect reusable gift to end plastic water bottle use!

Paperless Reuable Towels

$4.50 (pack of three)

End paper towel use forever with these convenient, biodegradable sponges made from renewable tree farms! Americans send about 3,000 tons of paper towels to the landfill every year, and they aren't recyclable. These towels hold ten times the liquid of regular paper towels, and the cost benefit of these sponge towels will add up quickly: you'll get the same use from one reusable paperless towel as 17 rolls of paper towels!

This natural fabric can be thrown into the dishwasher or machine washed to disinfect and is the perfect way to cut costs in your home.

A strategy with these paper towels to try out: buy a pack for the kitchen and one for the bathroom. Use one for washing dishes and kitchen surfaces, while using the other pack for the your bathroom surfaces (goes great with Chartreuse's organic bathroom cleaners!). Think about it: one roll of paper towels is often more than $2 for a single roll! It will pay for itself in no time.

      It's rather frightening that the term "organic" can be put on anything!

      Informative, inspiring & beautiful lens! I feel refreshed just by reading it and looking at the goodies....e.g. lavender, lemongrass, peppermint... 5*s & favorited.
