Green Gifts for Your Friends and Family
Rareform have created something that is practical, stylish and entirely unique, that’s because each backpack is created using an old billboard. This means that not only is the idea unique, but each pack is unique too, you won’t find any two that are the same. They look great not just because of their original pattern but the design is simple but still stylish. If that’s not enough due to the billboard material each backpack is waterproof too, so your stuff won’t get wet whilst out in the rain. It’s not just good for the environment but your packed lunch too.
Bamboo Cooking Utensils
If you’ve got a friend who loves to cook up a storm, then I have no doubt they’ll love these bamboo cooking utensils to replace their metal or plastic ones. No more will they need to worry about scratches in their pan or finding a place to put their spoon down, you can leave these in your pan whilst you go without worrying about burning your hand when you get back to it. They’re well made, hardy and even survive a good dishwashing too.
Wetsuit Yoga Mat
Yoga is so popular now, I have no doubt that you have a friend or family member that loves it too, if so, the wetsuit yoga mat is a great way to buy them a gift made from recycled materials. That’s right, this yoga mat (if you hadn’t guessed it) has been made from old wetsuits (that I’m sure were washed don’t worry). It also has a cool, sleek look and is just as functional and comfortable as any other yoga mat on the market, so it really is the best of both worlds.
An Imperfect Produce Subscription
If you’re in the US and are looking to get a gift for a friend who is totally eco-friendly then a subscription to Imperfect Produce would be a great way to go. Grocery stores have what is known as a cosmetic standard when it comes to fruit and veg, that means that 1 in 5 of the vegetables grown in the US thrown away just because they don’t meet those standards. You can help to end this ridiculous wastage with this subscription, each week you’ll receive a box of somewhat bizarre looking fruit and veg that taste just as good and are just as good for you as their more handsome store-bought counterparts.
Black+Blum Water Bottle with Charcoal Filter
Disposable water bottles are an absolute menace as I’m sure you’re aware, a great way to prevent this is by getting your own water bottle that you can refill in order to reduce plastic waste. You can’t really go wrong with this Black+Blum water bottle fitted with a stick of charcoal that acts as a natural filter. The bottle itself is made from Tritan which no BPA whatsoever and it’s fitted with a top made from silicon and cork to boot. What’s not to love?
