10 Ethical Gift Ideas for Christmas
If you want to give eco, ethical and sustainable Christmas gifts this year here are a few of our best eco Christmas gift ideas from Eqo and some of our favourite ethical companies. Be inspired to give natural, organic, ethical Christmas gifts with our ten gift ideas.
Eco Water Bottle by Yuhme
This beautiful eco water bottle by Yuhme is available from Eqo, it comes in three designs and is made from sugarcane, making it biodegradeable and BPA and toxin freee. It is extremely lightweight and holds 750ml, making it the perfect eco water bottle for taking on the go. Not only that, when you purchase a bottle you give 6 months of clean water to one person in the Central African Republic, a gift that gives!
Natural Skincare Gift Sets by Living Naturally
Living Naturally is a family business that make vegan, plant based, sustainable, ethical and cruelty-free skincare, haircare and laundry soap all made in the UK. They have gift sets for men and women, but I can gaurantee you'll want to buy something for yourself too!
Bee's Wrap Reusable food wraps
Since a video of Bee's Wrap on Buzzfeed went viral, we have been selling so many Bee's Wrap reusable food wraps and reusable sandwich wraps! They make a wonderful little gift for the eco-conscious, and would also be great as a stocking filler or secret santa gift. Bee's Wrap is made with organic cotton, sustainably harvested beeswax, organic jojoba oil and tree resin. The natural antibacterial properties of beeswax and jojoba oil help keep food fresh, and enable the wrap to be used again and again.
MADE UK Fair Trade Jewellery
Made use the most environmetally sound materials possible, and their pieces are all hand-crafted in Kenya by dedicated artisans. I really love their latest collaboration with Ella Grace, an online influencer. Ella's collection consists of 5 recycled brass pieces including this brass wrist cuff and Goddess neck cuff.
Booja Booja Chocolate Truffles
If it's chocolates you love to give, then look no further than these deliciously melt-in-your-mouth chocolate truffles by Booja Booja! Not only are they dairy, gluten and soya free, but they come in the most beautiful boxes and they're made in Norfolk using organic ingredients. To find your nearest stockist search here.
Klean Kanteen Festival Set
We love Klean Kanteen and we have put together this Zero Waste Klean Kanteen Festival Kit which includes an insulated growler, a reusable stainless steel pint cup and stainless steel straws. This set would make an ideal Christmas gift for those that love festivals and camping, but hate the waste that goes along with them. The insulated growler can be filled with beer (or wine, champagne etc etc) and it will keep the drink cold and fizzy for hours. The reusable pint cup means you can refuse single-use throwaway plastic cups at the bar, and stainless steel straws are a must to complete the zero waste kit.
Bamboo Portable Speakers by Otis & Eleanor
Music obsessed designers were tired of istening to music on rubbish plastic speakers, so they handcrafted Bongo -- a portable Bluetooth speaker with the stylish looks and unique design to match your lifestyle. Styled with a vintage vibe, each speaker is handmade from natural bamboo, linen, and brass. We love them!
KeepCup Glass reusable Coffee Cup
The glass reusable coffee cup by KeepCup is a coffee lovers dream! Drinking your brew from glass tastes perfect, and it can be taken into your favourite coffee shop and handed over to the barrista for filling, rather than using a throwaway coffee cup. If you know someone that adores coffee but still uses throwaway cups in coffee shops, then perhaps this would be the ideal eco Christmas gift for them!
Hetty + Sam vegan leather purse
Hetty + Sam design a range of purses and wallets, phone and tablet cases, bags, cushions, tea towels and prints which are all made using artwork and designs from some of the most innovative and progressive artists. A percentage of each sale goes to the original artist, and Hetty + Sam use no real leather or fur, which has been approved by PETA.
Kids Bamboo Dish Set
A wonderful eco dish set for kids, made from bamboo this plate, bowl and cup set will be the delight for any child! The bamboo has a soft, polished stone like texture and is dishwasher safe. Not only that, but when it reaches the end of it's life it's completely biodegradeable!
