The festive season is coming! Are you browsing the web to look for the best gifts for your loved ones? After the pandemic, we are much more aware of how our actions and choices can affect our planet. Take this opportunity to support a better world with your gifts.
Here are our picks of eco-friendly and sustainable gifts:
Pick a pair of sneakers made from sustainably sourced materials as a Christmas gift. Recycled plastic wastes and rubber soles, organic or fair trade cotton and compostable materials like sugarcane are some of the options.
Plant-based wax Candle
Soy wax, beeswax or coconut wax are some of the popular ingredients used in eco-candle making, as they are biodegradable and non-toxic. Give eco-friendly gifts to evoke all the senses during the lovely festive season.
Thermal Travel Mug
Due to the plastic resin inner lining, takeaway coffee cups are not recyclable. So, let your caffeine addict friend enjoy their daily coffee in style with a beautiful thermal travel mug.
Stainless Steel Water Bottle
Environmentally friendly, durable, safe, and easy-to-clean, stainless steel water bottles are an excellent alternative to using plastic water bottles.
Turning waste into compost means less trash gets buried in the ground in landfills. If your friend or family has a garden, a composter would be the perfect gift for them to turn everyday food waste into nutrient-rich compost.
Natural Body Scrub
Natural body scrubs can effectively remove dead skin cells and stimulate circulation to assist with brighter and smoother skin.
Reusable Sandwich Wraps
Use reusable sandwich wraps and pouches to replace plastic cling wrap and zip lock bags for a waste free lunch box.
Shampoo & Conditioner Bar
Replacing your bottled shampoo with a shampoo bar is a great way to transition your beauty routine to one that is more eco-friendly. Shampoo bars are biodegradable and don’t come in plastic packaging. They’re typically free of toxic chemicals that can find their way into waterways and animals.
