It's that time of year again! And wow, do we all need a little Christmas!
2020 has been a rollercoaster year for everyone. It has left lives turned inside out, left some serious challenges to overcome and left many of us with an overall fear of an uncertain future.
With all that has gone on it has been easy to forget our current climate crisis, so we thought it was a timely reminder to make those eco-friendly choices, in a bid to look after our beautiful planet.
We have put together a helpful list of sustainable gift ideas for this Christmas season:
To cut down on unwanted lunchbox waste, we love beeswax lunch wraps. They are made from 100% natural materials, reusable and compostable.
We love Beeswax Wraps Australia
Reusable Flasks and Cups
Cutting down on disposable coffee cups and plastic water bottles has been one of the best ways to look after our planet. With more of us choosing a sustainable alternative for our beverages - they are the perfect gift this year.
We love made by Fressko Flask and Coffee Cups (of course)
One of the world's most loved beverages, coffee is a staple in many homes. Having a subscription to an ethical, sustainable company that delivers that liquid gold is such a thoughtful gift. Many coffee pod companies even have compostable pod casings, making them even more eco-friendly.
We love Pod and Parcel
Reusable shopping bags
It's no secret that single-use plastics like shopping bags are crowding landfills, endangering wildlife and damaging our oceans. Using an ethically made, reusable grocery bag is a decision that may seem a small change, but if widely implemented can have a hugely positive impact on our environment.
We love biome
Zero waste bathroom products
We use a lot of products in the bathroom and a lot of them are not good for the environment, are not sustainable and some can even be damaging to our bodies. Using natural, organic products and replacing throwaway items such as plastic toothbrushes for bamboo ones can be an easy way to make changes for a brighter future.
We love the range at Flora and Fauna
Non-toxic art supplies
For all of the budding and old-hand artists out there, nothing is better than receiving some precious art supplies as a gift. Nowadays we are lucky enough to have non-toxic paint, recycled paper and recycled pens and pencils as an option to make that present purchasing feel even better.
We love the ranger here at Buy Eco Green
Organic chocolate gifts
Who doesn't love chocolate? And it's even better when you know it has been ethically made, is organic and made by people who believe in creating a delicious indulgence with the ultimate priority being its effect on the planet.
We love Loving Earth chocolate
Whatever your gift choices are this year, it is so lovely to know that if we want to, we can choose an ethical or sustainable version of almost anything.
