One way to go green this holiday season: regift like mad. A more generous option: shop Grasshopper 510’s ecofriendly selection. (We promise you’ll sustain your friendships.)

Vintage Hand-Screened Suitcase, $210
Most travel accessories make us feel like empty shells. But this pretty repurposed bag — screened by artist Liz Saintsing with butterflies and flowers — is first class.

Ija Designs Gull Necklace, $78
Recycled metal (fourteen-karat gold or sterling silver) takes a delicate new shape in what we’re betting is a flight of fancy for any accessories hoarder.

Fluf Organic Cotton Lunch Bag, $18
From a sea of brown bags emerges the Canadian company’s reusable sack, which can be popped into the washing machine after you’re done showing off in the cafeteria.

Mixtape Love Card, $4.50
For pals who saw you through your Rock Me Amadeus days, there’s a recycled paper note card from local design outfit La Familia Green.

Dolan Geiman Box Print, $175
Giddyap with the Chicago artist’s screen print, reproduced on recycled wood with chemical-free ink. The folksy little wonder comes ready to hang.

Grasshopper 510, 1944 West Damen Avenue, at Homer Street (773-292-0510 or grasshopper510.com).
