When you order the Greenpeace Earth Gift , for example, we’ll send your friend or family member a tantalizing grab bag of environmental  treats.

reading material, the world famous Greenpeace International calendar. The
possibilities are endless. To see our  easy-to-navigate online catalogue, click here»
