Sustainable Gift Ideas (Eco-Friendly Gift Guide) and Beauty Bundle Giveaway

Eco Clothes

Living Life Our Way Teemill Store

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.

Rapanui Clothing

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.

Bamboo Socks

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 Gifts

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…

Bamboo Reusable Makeup Remover Pads

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!

Eco Panda reusable make up pads

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

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!

Bamboo hairbrush

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!

Food Storage

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

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

The Wildlife Trusts do fantastic work, and annual membership is a lovely gift for eco-friendly nature lovers.

Surfers Against Sewage

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

They include; 6 varieties of seeds, compostable cardboard and PLA pots, peat free compost discs, palm leaf trays for your pots, wooden spoon plant markers, bottletop waterer (80% recycled plastic, made in the UK) and coffee sack planter bags.

  1. I love these ideas, they would be lovely for my son and daughter in law who are trying very hard to eliminate plastic in their lives!

  2. The T-shirts and hoodies look great and at reasonable prices too. We definitely need to be more aware of the sustainability aspect when buying new things x

  3. Try your best. I wish everyone would just do their bit , whatever that may be instead of saying that whatever they do won’t make a change.

  4. Fantastic eco selection of gifts. I found a fantastic company who sell cosmetics in bamboo casing too. They make great gifts also.

  5. I am expecting a baby in 2020 and I’m really considering where I can reduce our impact on the environment, so this would help a lot.

  6. i love all of your ideas in this post. We are finding that we are definitely becoming more aware of the things we can do – for example we tried to avoid too much “consumption” over christmas – both in terms of gifts, food etc and also eco-friendly ways of wrapping etc. These products in the giveaway sound really good.

  7. Cool completely different never seen one these before and want to know more about it and would be great for my mum she would love this made of bamboo different.

  8. I often give gifts of plants, which I have grown from seeds – either for gardens, but also for the house, as some plants clean pollution from homes x

  9. I love all these prizes. I started going plastic free last year and I’m going to continue this in 2020, I’ve got more changes to make.

  10. I’m trying to reduce my plastic and it’s my new year’s resolution for 2020. This would help me on my zero waste journey!

  11. I’ve been think about being even more eco friendly lately & I do cleanse my face every night with disposable cotton wool pads, so switching to these would be great.

  12. Some great ideas here for all of us who are trying to live a more sustainable life. I was only thinking this morning about the number of cotton pads I use, and wondering what was available to help me to reduce my consumption, so this prize would be perfect.

  13. *When I originally commented I clicked the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get four emails with the same comment. Is there any way you can remove me from that service? Thanks!

  14. Love all these gift ideas. Giving something sustainable is such a nicer feeling – giving to someone else and giving back!
