If you have a friend or loved one that is passionate about helping the environment and living a sustainable lifestyle, you’ll want to get them a gift that fits with their principles, so preferably plastic free. Fortunately, as more and more people are becoming aware of climate change and want to do their bit to help the environment, it is easier than ever to find products that are plastic free and sustainable. Read on to find out the best gift ideas for your eco-warrior friends and family.
- A tree. You could buy your friend a small plum tree to put in their garden, or what I really mean by a tree, is you could get a tree planted in their name. There are a number of charities and organisations that plant trees using donations. It’s a bit like adopting a tree. Considering that one of the biggest worries many have is that deforestation will leave us without enough trees to absorb the carbon dioxide we produce, providing us with oxygen, this is a great gift idea.
- A plastic free, reusable flask or water bottle. If your friend enjoys going to cafes like Starbucks, they will appreciate having a reusable cup they can have filled instead of using the single use cups. There are so many pretty designs to choose from.
- Lastly, a Bamboo Toothbrush, like those sold at bambooth.com, would be a great idea. Dentists recommend that we change our toothbrush every three months. If we buy plastic toothbrushes, this can result in an accumulation of plastic waste, making bamboo toothbrushes ideal.
