Dads have come a long way since the days of the stereotypical cigar chomping, garage tinkering, newspaper-at-the-breakfast-table men of the recent past. Nowadays more and more dads are becoming nurturing, early adapting, fashion forward, artistic, eco-responsible individuals. In other words, we’re not our dads dads. So on this Fathers Day let’s celebrate with green-minded, stylish, thoughtful gifts that fit the bill. From recycled necktie wallets to wooden harddrives, here are a few of our favorite eco gifts for the modern dad.
