These eco friendly gifts are practical, functional, and affordable! A winning combination in my book.
I personally own and use everything that’s on my list on a regular basis. And I really can’t say enough good things about them.
So if you need a little help in your search for the perfect gift for the eco-geeks in your life, I got you! Here are my personal favs!
Popular Eco Friendly Gifts
These Collapse-It silicone containers are ah-mazing! I didn’t even know something like this existed until I received it from my Mighty Fix subscription. Not only do they replace plastic storage containers that warp and stain easily but they also collapse (hence the name). So they barely take up any space when you're not using them! Perfect for those who have limited cabinet space.
Reusable K Cups
Keurig lovers don’t have to give up their single cup coffee maker to be green. They can now use the reusable K cup! They no longer have to waste a plastic pod each time they make coffee, and as a bonus they will also save money because K cups are way more expensive than a bag of coffee! Grab these reusable K cups and their favorite bag of coffee and gift them happiness in a cup.
Subscription to Mighty Fix
Gift a subscription to Mighty Fix. It's seriously the BEST subscription box. It helps people get greener a month at a time. Each month they send a cool greener alternative for you to try so you can ease into the eco friendly lifestyle. My sister actually got this for me the past 2 years and seriously it’s one of the best gifts I’ve ever gotten. I love it! And as a BONUS for you, try MightyFix for $3 and get 2 sheets of Bee's wrap for your first month with promo code BEESFIX2018.
I used to use a crazy amount of disposable plastic bags every day. Until I discovered these silicone bags. They are sturdy and airtight, which means you can practically carry anything in them just like the disposable bags. They’re pretty low maintenance and can be washed in the dishwasher.
Disposable plastic bottles are a major problem today. That’s why everyone needs a good reusable cup. There are so many different ones out there but I really like this insulated tumbler. Not only do these tumblers keep drinks colder for longer in the summer but they’ll also keep your hot drinks hotter for longer in the winter. I’m talking hours! These things are worth the money! They're half the price of the Yeti tumblers and work just as well! There’s not a day that goes by that I don’t use mine.
Reusable Lunch Bags
If you know a brown bagger, these reusable sandwich and snack bags are perfect for them. They are easy to clean and keeps all of the crumbs from getting all over the place. And the best thing is that they’ll drastically reduce the number of plastic baggies they use.
This compost bin is perfect for the new (or experienced) composter. Its small enough to put under the sink or on the counter. But it’s large enough that you’ll be able to go a whole week until you have to empty the bin (at least for me). The lid is removable making it easy to empty and clean.
Reusable sponge and Swedish Dishcloth
Reusable sponges and Swedish dishcloths are the perfect combo that can be used in place of disposable sponges and paper towels. The sponge can be used over and over without it getting nasty and infested with bacteria. The dishcloths are super durable and are much stronger than paper towels. It can replace up to 15 rolls of paper towel! I use both of these things to scrub dishes and the cloth works great when I’m cleaning the countertops. When either get dirty, just throw it in the dishwasher and it’s like new again.
Stainless Steel Straws
These stainless steel straws are the perfect alternative to plastic straws and a great stocking stuffer. It's a great gift for those who love using straws but stopped because plastic ones are terrible for the environment. If metal straws aren’t your thing, you can use silicone straws or glass straws. All of these straws listed will last for years to come.
Cloth napkins will cut the need for paper napkins by almost 100%! If you’re looking for something more casual than the fancy dinner napkins, these napkins are the one that I use and love. I know they are labeled as dishcloths but they work just as well and I like the fact that they are smaller and colorful.
