Gifting eco-friendly or zero-waste products can make a difference in the short term, and might inspire long-lasting change. Here are five inexpensive and eco-friendly gifts to consider this holiday season!
Reusable shopping bags: Most people have several reusable bags around their home…but why not give a reusable shopping bag your loved one can be excited to tote around the store? You can find a durable, stylish reusable shopping bag for less than $15 online, or at your local gift shop!
Eco-friendly cleaning products: If you have friends or loved ones who pride themselves on keeping a tidy home, you should consider gifting some eco-friendly cleaning products. A gift set will typically cost less than $30, and includes dish soap, laundry detergent, hand soap, and multi-surface cleaner.
Lunch boxes: Giving a new lunch box as a gift is an inexpensive way to replace paper and plastic bags. You can even purchase a lunch box gift set, which typically includes a lunch container, reusable sandwich wraps, and dip containers.
Reusable water bottle: A stainless steel water bottle not only sidesteps the need for single-use plastic, it also keeps drinks cold for up to 24 hours. For hot drinks, consider purchasing an insulated hydro flask!
Solar powered charger: Giving a solar-powered charger for cell phones and devices will help your family and friends reduce electricity use. Click here for a list of more eco-friendly gadgets your loved ones may enjoy!
