Gifts for Eco Warriors – Eco Friendly Gift Ideas
Recently I’ve been considering gifts for eco warriors and whether there are eco-friendly gifts are available on the market that I would actually feel comfortable to give a friend as a gift. I’m thinking : ways to re-use/reduce or recycle existing items or products that are alternatives to traditional disposable/plastic products. With this in mind I’ve been hunting around some of my favourite sites to bring you some really fun, some very pretty, unique and original eco-friendly gift ideas! Check them out below:
I love this and I think it would make a fabulous gift. The pretty and handmade set includes a natural cotton market bag, set of 3 cotton/linen produce bags in 3 different sizes, set of 5 organic hemp cotton pads, linen and cotton zero waste crochet face scrubbies and an organic cotton bath puff. Ideal if you are on the hunt for gifts for eco warriors! There are also plenty of other eco-friendly gift ideas at this lovely etsy shop LaPepaBoutique;
This wallet if fab and is made from cork which is a sustainable alternative to animal leather. It is made from cork harvested from oak trees in Portugal using the shavings meaning the tree is not cut down and therefore a great sustainable resource. Each wallet is beautifully unique.
