If you’re looking for the perfect gift for a friend who wants to bring an eco-conscious lifestyle into their home, we’ve got you covered. Here are 11 unique eco-friendly gift ideas that are perfect for any holiday celebration (or just because!).
Makeup Remover Pads
Apart from the obvious environmental reasons, makeup remover pads are also great for sensitive skin types! Makeup wipes can be very harsh on your skin because they have a high alcohol content and you have to rub them violently to get the makeup off.
Organic waste can be easily turned into compost for your garden or houseplants! It’s a great way to reduce the waste in landfills, it’s easy to use and will save you money on fertilizer. Composters block odors and can be used indoors!
Cleaning Supplies with Refills
If you love your reusable cleaners, why not gift them? It’s great for the environment, and it’ll keep them from buying more plastic bottles. Blueland is a great option to get cleaning products with easy tablet refills.
“Makeup hoarding” has become an issue, with people buying tons and tons of useless plastic with their palettes and lipsticks. However, there’s a new trend that’s coming up: zero-waste makeup! Yes, you hear correctly. Brands like River Organics use cardboard packaging for their highlighters, blushes, and lip balms.
Reusable “Paper” Towels
Instead of using disposable paper towels, try switching to reusable ones! These “Unpaper” towels are a great option
Tote bags are the best way to avoid single use plastics, since they replace grocery store shopping bags. These bags aren’t only bad because they end up in landfills, they are especially dangerous to marine wildlife —sea turtles ingest them by mistake.
Silicone Baking Mat
If your eco-conscious friend loves baking, consider getting them a silicone baking mat! They are a great way to avoid single use parchment paper.
Reusable storage bags
These reusable storage bags are perfect for anyone who wants to reduce waste in their life. They come in a variety of sizes so you can use them for anything from packing lunches on the go to storing leftover food for later use at home.
Vegan Spa Kit
If your friend is in need of some relaxation and some time to lay back, you can get them a bundle with zero-waste vegan goodies!
