The youth are leading today’s environmental movement with impressive zeal. They’ve inherited an earth plummeting ever faster into disaster and are refusing to be complacent with the policies and practices of the Boomer generation. Thank the blessed mother for them. If you have a young environmentalist in your life who you’d like to thank for saving the planet, breaking up with Amazon is the greatest gift. But this gift guide—full of environmentally conscious products—is a close second.
