Give A Green Gift This March 17th!

Jan 23, 2008
These days everyone is concerned with their carbon footprints, and everyone is very socially aware..none more so than an Irish company called Rooted in Ireland, who really are doing their bit to help Mother Earth. Based in Ireland, hence the name, this company are doing all that they can to bring a socially conscious business to the world stage. It is here in the lush green rolling hills of Ireland that this story begins.

When you talk about Ireland, you would never think it is the least forested land in Europe, but sadly this is true. Over the centuries, Ireland's forests have been wiped out for various reasons, and by various groups of people. There is hope however; a company called Rooted in Ireland have decided to take the bull by the horns, and start an oak planting project. They plant oak trees which can then be dedicated to someone's memory, or given as a gift to mark a special occasion. If there is any sort of Karma associated with business, Rooted in Ireland should be all good!

To further help their memorial oak tree planting mission, they have established a complementary new site, Great Gifts from Ireland. The money made in sales from the recently launched website goes to support the original focus of the group - a 9 acre grove of young oak trees planted in a place oaks were once plentiful. The location overlooks historic Armagh, "the city of saints and scholars" which was the historical center of St. Patrick's congregation.

Great Gifts from Ireland features Irish gifts that range from the unique to the more traditional with the goal always being that the products carried are fun and of high quality. There are collectable wooden spoons, lighters, Guinness "Drinking Socks" and shot glasses with either the claddagh or a traditional Irish blessing. Authentic Irish gifts for St. Patrick's Day abound at Great Gifts from Ireland. Stone key rings carved with the shamrock (the same symbol St. Patrick used to teach the concept of the Trinity), brass St. Brighid's crosses and handcrafted Celtic crosses made from the very turf of the brilliant Emerald Isle are among the unique Irish gifts that make a visit to Great Gifts from Ireland a wonderful online treat.

But of course the most green and worthwhile gift that you can give from Rooted in Ireland is of course one of their oak trees. What other gift can you give someone safe in the knowledge that the gift will still be around in a couple hunded years or so? For only $99 you too can dedicated an oak tree, and join the ranks of delighted people who have dedicated a tree with Rooted in Ireland. And there is another benefit; 10% of the price of each tree dedication goes directly to Marie Curie Cancer Research!.

Go ahead, feel good about St. Patrick's Day gifts you give this year-Go green with Great Gifts from Ireland.
