Everyone loves the idea of receiving a gift. When the person you’re giving gifts to is very conscious about the environment, you sure can’t give them perishable or disposable materials. You should be on the lookout for items that are eco-friendly, green, and ethical.
The thing about eco-friendly products is that they are sustainably sourced, produced, and made from low-impact materials that won’t cause any harm to the environment. Another thing about these types of products is they are gifts anyone will love. Whether they’re fashion and home decor fans, or tech bros and global tourists.
So have you been looking for a great way to gift someone with beautifully designed sneakers, cute jewelry, house supplies, or new makeup? Being conscious of the environment while shopping for people on your list would make you feel better about spending your money, and the recipient can denote that you thought about them before it. Here are a few gift ideas you might want to consider.
Larq Water Bottle
LARQ prides itself in being referred to as the first self-cleaning water bottle in the world and portable water purification device. The project was launched via a campaign that led the frontline as the largest-ever first-time crowd-funded hydration campaign. This signature water container employs the use of a UV-C LED technology that kills close to 99 percent of bacteria, getting rid of odors and viruses in the water.
Just like any innovative company would, the technology was patented. Another water bottle that comes close to Larqs’ is the S’Well bottle. Another advantage of getting the bottle is that you don’t have to replace its water filter.
The bespoke bottle has double layers and is meant to keep its content cold for at least 24 hours. LARQ bottles are made from a non-toxic material that is equally plastic-free. To show they’re committed to a healthier planet, they designate a part of their profit for non-profit causes like ensuring people are able to get water conveniently.
Zero Waste Sunscreen
Summertime is one of the best times of the year because many people get to spend some time in the sun. If you’ve got friends who love being in the sun, consider gifting them an eco-friendly cardboard tube that contains a non-plastic sunscreen.
You’d agree that the average sunscreen you purchase at the mall is packaged in a plastic container, they also include nanoparticles which are essentially chemicals that protect your skin. When the nanoparticles get washed away during your fun time at the beach, it flows into the water, resulting in harm to the ecosystem. The chemicals can equally cause what’s known as coral bleaching.
How’s the zero waste sunscreen any different? Well, it doesn’t come with a plastic container and employs natural ingredients rather than chemicals to protect your skin. Coconut oil, cocoa butter, and zinc oxide are some of those natural elements. This is one of the zero waste gifts you can give. And no, it doesn’t smell weird, so go ahead and get this fantastic product. It helps put a smile on someone’s face and keep the earth safe.
Blueair Blue Air Purifier
Having an air purifier that produces germ-free and clear air in the house is important for our well-being. If not for any reason, to reduce allergies and the chances of contacting COVID. They don’t have to be big or consume so much energy for them to be efficient.
The Blueair Blue Air Purifier has a three-stage filtration process that helps nearly 100 % of airborne pollutants in your space, and it doesn’t consume energy. The company uses almost the same amount of energy as a single light bulb. It has a 360-degree air intake, as such, it can be situated anywhere in your room. It produces no sound and is perfect for both private and public spaces.
Wireless Nimble For Good
Your traveler friend would certainly find this interesting. It’s basically a charger that’s made from plants. Nimble for Good makes wireless and portable chargers from a mixture of hemp and recycled plastic containers. That makes the products eco-friendly and, of course, sustainable.
This wireless travel kit comes with a wireless pad and two USB wall chargers. With well-built cable management, this device is able to store everything in a single compact box. And as you rightly guessed, it has no plastic packaging and works well with devices like the more recent iPhones, AirPods, Androids, Samsungs, and the Google Pixel 3.
If you’ve been thinking of the perfect environmentally-friendly gift for your loved one, the ideas listed here are great options to look into. They might be a little bit on the high side, but it’s totally worth it and the recipient would love it.
