Plastic Free Ethical Gifts
There’s always an opportunity to show your support for fairtrade businesses by purchasing ethically sourced gifts. Gift giving can be done any day of the year. Buy a small gift for your loved ones to show how much you care and love them. Or buy a gift for your child as a reward for finishing a simple household chore. Whatever the occasion, choosing plastic-free items as gifts should take your gift giving skills to the next level.
Plastic Free Secondhand Gifts
Used items make for ideal gifts if you want to live as environmentally friendly as possible. There are plenty of second hand items that are waiting to be appreciated again so there’s definitely no need to buy something new.
However, if you’ve not managed to find a suitable gift at a charity shop, reusable items and personal care products are highly recommended as gifts. People need personal care products for proper hygiene and reusable items like travel mugs are used on a daily basis. Wooden toys and soft dolls make for amazing gifts for children.
Reusable gifts are simple and easy to find. You can tailor your gift based on the personality and needs of the gift recipient. For example, if the person you are buying for is a coffee enthusiast then a reusable coffee cup makes for a wonderful gift. If the gift recipient have an active lifestyle and spends most of their time outdoors, we recommend getting them a reusable water bottle to keep them hydrated in style while they’re out and about.
Stainless steel food containers and beeswax wraps are great gifts for people that want to enjoy zero waste meals and snacks. These eco-friendly items offer healthier options like home cooked meals, fruits and sandwiches over fast food. Since they’re plastic free, you can be assured that they are safe to use and 100% BPA free. They’re also perfect for storing leftovers in the fridge.
If you are thinking of something more practical, how about eco-friendly items like a coconut scouring pad or natural laundry cleanser?
Everyone deserves to relax to relieve stress from work or life in general so spa inspired gifts or pamper sets are quite popular. Unfortunately, most of the products in these pamper sets as well as packaging are full of plastic and synthetic materials.
However, you can make a pamper set yourself. Select ethically made plastic-free products like scented bath salts, bath bombs and scented candles for your pamper set. Throw some personal care products like moisturisers or safety razors into the mix and your good to go.
We have beard care products like beard oil, beard balm and more. We have bundles of beard products too! For the ladies, we have vegan perfumes, lip balms and other natural personal care products.
Whatever gift you decide to get your friends or family, we highly recommend choosing plastic free and ethically made items. Making smart choices with the gifts we give out goes a long way in protecting our environment from utter destruction.
