Who doesn't love a deal? (Credit: Cameron Russell via Flickr)

We can't shop our way out of this mess, but at some point we all need to buy something — be it a new pair of underwear or a gift for a special someone. Now wouldn't it be nice if there were coupons or deals for "green" stores and products?

Luckily, there are.

Join the ethicalDeal.

Get $5 off your first purchase on Enter promo code QUEENOFGREEN on the checkout page. This offer is valid for new users only and expires December 31, 2012.

The Green Zebra guide by Greenster is another great coupon book of local savings for sustainable living in BC (but with many online coupons, too). With over 250 coupons, you can find eco-friendlier cleaning products, baby products, sustainable restaurants, and more.

Finally, "green" gift giving ideas wouldn't be complete without mentioning re-gifting. I think it is couth in this day and age. It also doesn't have to detract from being gracious about a gift you may have received. I mean, if you know someone who can put an item to use, why not pass it on?

How do you find savings when it comes to more sustainable purchases? Do you re-gift?
