Enjoy the fruits of green research with today’s Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of eco-friendly goods at Park + Vine. This deal is not valid on food-related items.

ChicoBags ($5) cart around carryables in style with a compact, washable satchel perfect for storing mounds of Just Soap, a pedal-mixed, biodegradable cleaning recipe available in scents of cinnamon clove, rosemary, and sage fir. Inscribe holiday greetings and clemency letters to Santa’s evil apprentice on Little Otsu greeting cards ($3), printed in vegetable-based inks on 100% postconsumer waste recycled paper.
