This Black Friday, we've rounded up some incredible organic, eco, conscious and pretty kick-ass faves that make great gifts as well as usher in new models of doing business fit for any day of the year. And since the where-I-spend-my-dollar choice is far more than a symbolic gesture these days, there's even more reason to turn Black Friday into Green Friday this holiday season. Not only can we gift consciously, but we may also find great reward in supporting our communities through volunteering, adopting a shelter animal, planting a tree or community garden this season, too.
