Do you want to find a gift with a difference? Then why not choose something that helps protect our planet! If you are looking for sustainable gift ideas, check out this gift guide full of eco-friendly items to fill your (bamboo) stockings with…
Living Life Our Way’s sustainable clothing is made from 100% organic cotton, in a wind powered factory. Designs are printed using low waste, cutting edge technology. Furthermore, everything is ethically made and fully traceable from start to finish. Sustainable, ethical and good quality too. Choose from bags, sweatshirts, hoodies, tees and vests in a range of various designs, including charity tees, or customise your own.
I can’t mention my own teemill designs without also including the Rapanui brand itself. There is an brilliant selection of eco clothing for both men and women on the site. I have several tees and hoodies from there; it is my go-to place when in need of new items.
I have written previously about the range of bamboo socks at Sock Shop. They are really soft and comfortable, with a great selection of designs for men, women and kids.
Beauty items are often a popular gift idea. However, many are not so good for the planet. But there are some lovely eco-friendly brands to choose from! Here are a few great choices…
EcoPanda have two sets of reusable bamboo makeup remover pads to choose from. The first set comes with the pads, laundry bag and a cute little bamboo storage tub to keep them in. I was kindly sent this item to review and include in this guide. Whilst I don’t wear makeup often myself personally and try to remove it with just water when I do, mascara and heavier make up can be tough to remove without pads and cleanser (or worse, wipes!) so these reusable ones will come in handy!
The second set includes pads, laundry bag and face cloth. EcoPanda have offered a lucky reader the chance to win one of these lovely little sets!

Net Zero Co are a truly environmentally-conscious brand with a brilliant selection of products. They ship entirely plastic free; all of their packaging is 100% recyclable and home compostable, and sealed with paper tape. They also plant a tree with every order. Amongst the bathroom/ beauty items available in their online store is an awesome bamboo hairbrush with bamboo ball tipped bristles. Bamboo has natural antibacterial properties so helps keep your hair and scalp healthy too!
They also have fab stocking fillers like a bamboo toothbrush set with charcoal infused bristles. This set of 4 has a unique wave design on each handle so you don’t get mixed up. I love this idea; simple but effective!
Net Zero Co have kindly offered a bamboo toothbrush and bamboo hairbrush as a prize to one lucky winner too! Enter this beauty bundle giveaway via rafflecopter below. Ends 29th December 2019. Worldwide entry. T&Cs apply.

Net Zero Co also have an excellent range of food storage and reusable cutlery too. For example, this 1200ml steel bento box with removable divider is airtight and leakproof so is great for picnics, long journeys or school/ work lunches. The handy divider can be removed if a larger space is needed. This munchie box also comes in different sizes and Net Zero Co sell some handy little pots that fit nicely into them too!
Annual memberships to a place of interest are a nice choice of gift. For example, a local well- loved attraction, or a National Trust membership. Another option is an annual membership to environmentally- conscious charities. Here are a couple of my favourites, but there are many more of course…
The Wildlife Trusts do fantastic work, and annual membership is a lovely gift for eco-friendly nature lovers.
SAS works tirelessly to campaign for cleaner environments and supports the development of sustainable communities. Membership to this charity makes a great gift!
The Crop Club
