The 4 Best Sustainable Christmas Gifts You Can Find Online
1. Sustainable Side Bags
These versatile and sturdy side bags are made from recycled plastic bottles and are heavy-duty enough to hold up to 4kg (8.8lb), making them perfect for students, commuters, hobbyists, new parents, or anyone else on your list.
With two internal pockets, a large open central compartment, and an external mesh pocket for small items, there is a place for everything. And although these will last for years, they are 100% recyclable when the time comes to bid them adieu. They even scrunch down in to a handy travel pouch when not in use and make the perfect travel companion.
2. Stainless Steel Drink Bottles
Millions of single-use plastic bottles end up in landfills every year, so gifting these environmentally friendly stainless steel drink bottles is a step toward reducing such waste. These ergonomically designed bottles are guaranteed not to retain any taste, so feel free to fill them with something besides water.
Available in six colours and three sizes, and with additional lid, carabiner, insulation, and other accessories, you can create individualized bottles specific to anyone on your Christmas list.
3. Lightweight Backpack
When it is time for some hands-free carrying, there is no better sustainable gift for Christmas than this lightweight but strong, sustainably produced backpack.
This comes in 14 different Australia-themed & environmental designs, and with padded adjustable straps, it’s a great choice for environmentally conscious students, new parents, hikers or outdoor enthusiasts, and travellers. It is also handy as an extra take-along bag, as this collapses into a convenient key-chain sized pouch.
4. Silicone Coffee Cups
Conventional ceramic coffee mugs are often glazed with materials containing harmful toxins (such as lead), and other ecofriendly mugs can retain funky tastes and odours, tainting your beverage. There will be no aftertaste or toxic exposure with these heatproof and durable silicone mugs.
Available in a variety of colours, these cups are microwave and dishwasher safe and come with a protective lid to prevent spills: perfect for the coffee or tea drinker in your life.
Finding sustainable gifts for Christmas doesn’t have to mean sacrificing your budget or your recipient’s sense of style. With these unique and environmentally friendly gift ideas, you are sure to make those you love smile this year, and they can feel good about the impact they’re making by reducing waste every day.
