Ethical Gift-Giving?
So, I'm looking for a few recommendations of companies that sell books, toys, etc for toddlers and children and that are ecologically and socially responsible and ship to the U.S. or Canada.

My nephew's first birthday is still a few months away...but I am thinking about bending my "I don't celebrate the commerical aspects of Christmas" rule for him. ;)

    I like A Greater Gift from SERRV Int'l. All fair trade items. Their items seem to rotate frequently, so if you don't find anything you like now, check back later. http://www.agreatergift.org/Default.aspx
