Eco-Friendly Holiday Gifts
On the hunt for that perfect gift this holiday season for your eco-conscious loved ones? We have some eco-friendly holiday gift suggestions for everyone on your list.
For the Animal Lover and Wildlife Preservationist
You can give the gift of protecting wild animals and habitat through the Sierra Club’s Adopt a Wild Animal — the recipient will receive an adorable plush animal. World Wildlife Fund also offers Symbolic Species Adoptions, with optional “adoption kit” for the recipient. Or, give the gift of trees through the National Forest Foundation and help restore National Forests. Alternatively, search for cruelty-free cosmetic or cleaning products on Cruelty-Free International or look for products with the Leaping Bunny cruelty-free label in the store.
For the Recycler
Find a gift made that reinforces your appreciation of a friend’s recycling, such as these notebooks crafted from 100 percent post-consumer recycled paper. Or search Uncommon Goods, a Certified B Corporation with a focus on sustainability, where you can find items like beautiful stemless wine glasses made from recycled glass and this upcycled cotton sari robe. Through its Better to Give program, Uncommon Goods donates $1 to a nonprofit organization with every purchase you make.
