Dive in with goods from Green Wave: The Eco-Surf Company which opened its doors in June of ’07. Green Wave sells clothing and gear that are made only by environmentally responsible companies. And they donate a portion of proceeds to Kids Saving the Rainforest, another worthy organization, started by 2 school children in Costa Rica.

Why not make a statement with this organic cotton t-shirt, ($22.99) printed by Sector 9 with water-based inks, to show your support for organics? As we say in California, awesome! Also gotta love these Sprout Board Shorts (made from hemp and recycled plastic bottles) for guys, on sale for $43. And of course, don’t forget the biofoam boards by Nielson…catch the green wave Christmas Sale going on now.
