Tons Of Amazing Gifts. A Lot Less Waste.
While the holiday season may be considered “the most wonderful time of the year,” it’s definitely not the most sustainable time of the year. From decorations, which are essentially single-use plastics, to the amount of stuff we’re expected to buy and receive, it can be overwhelming to those eco-warriors among us.
Which is why we’ve created this gift guide. Giving and receiving gifts can still be a meaningful practice—as long as you choose gifts that put people and planet first. While we acknowledge that any type of product has an environmental impact, we’ve partnered with REI to choose items that limit that impact. Whether they’re alternatives to single-use plastics, bluesign® approved, made from recycled materials, or some combination thereof, these items will do right by the most eco-groovy of your friends….Just don’t forget to wrap your gifts in newspaper.
So, read on for some eco-friendly gift ideas!
