Not only is it Day 5 of our Gift Giving Guide, but it is also Green Tuesday. Introduced by Green America, Green Tuesday's purpose is to help those who want to save while being green during this time of year. Be sure to check out GreenDeals, which provides a new deal from both local and national online businesses, every 24-48 hours (similar to Groupon). To start Green Tuesday, GreenDeals is offering 15-20 products and coupons (up to 50% off) from today through Dec. 6.
In honor of this new holiday shopping tradition, our gift today is for that eco-friendly person wanting a little something that is reusable, non-toxic and made from recycled material -- plus who wouldn't want their straws to match their appliances? These stainless steel straws ($11.99 for a set of 4) from Stainless Cups, (or $8.50 for the next 7 days or until supplies last on GreenDeals) come in two sizes -- 7" or 9".
