Christmas is the time for giving. However, the more we give, the more we take from our planet. It is absolutely possible to give generously this Christmas and give back to the world we live in.
Don’t worry, it isn’t all incense and hemp, these are genuinely lovely gifts we would love to receive.We are huge fans of vegan brands, so we have compiled a list that will ensure you to have a conscious Christmas with these eco gifts.
The leaders of ethical cosmetics, having enthused and lead the market against animal testing Lush is the location for cosmetics with a conscience. Christmas is the perfect time to shop all the bath bombs, shower jellies and much much more.
2. Keep Cup
We all need a good coffee in the morning, and whilst we are out and about. However, getting that soy latte to go is a contentious issue. Irradiate your coffee’s environmental impact by getting your own travel mug. This one ticks even more boxes by being glass and cork.
3. A Goat from Oxfam
The most eco gift possible, helping a community in Afghanistan to grow their own food and manage their animals to help them get more out of their life. The goat gives the opportunity to increase food production, create more goats and allow them to make their own income.
4. Bamboo Toothbrushes
The plastic in our toothbrushes will take 1000s of years to degrade. Choosing a bamboo toothbrush not only promotes excellent oral health but will also help with the plastic waste issues that we have in the world.
5. Rothy’s Shoes
Worn recently by the Duchess of Sussex, these are a great eco shoe that still has style. These shoes are made from 100% post-consumer recycled materials. Mostly from Recycled water bottles, the foam comes from recalled shoes and the soles are completely carbon free. They are also super stylish and versatile.
6. Pamper Kit
This super personal pamper kit from Bloomtown Botanicals, winner of best FreeFrom Skincare Brand 2017 & 2018 are a PETA-Certified Cruelty-Free & Vegan. This kit’s products are all Palm Oil-Free and contain 3 of eco-luxe products, all beautifully wrapped and personalised with a card.
7. Alexandra K Jacket
You know by now that we love Alexandra K’s 100% Peta certified bags. However, new in and just in time for Christmas Alexandra K have launched 2 limited editor vegan leather biker jackets. We love the style and sensibility that this jacket combines. Made to an impeccable standard, this is the ultimate eco gift for any fashion fan.
8. Cashmere Gloves
Arket have gone under the radar. They are fast becoming the go-to for curated mid-level quality goods. For their eco credentials, they use recycled cashmere. Meaning that these gloves are created by the leftover elements of cashmere from other production. Essentially the gloves utilise a waste product.
9. Metal Straws
In a similar vein to the bamboo toothbrushes, metal straws allow you to drink to your heart’s content, without increasing plastic waste in any way. They are super easy to clean and create no waste. Who doesn’t like a guilt-free drink?
