5 Zero Waste Gift Ideas
Gift giving is one of our favorite holiday traditions here at Sun & Swell. That feeling of finding the perfect gift for a loved one is one unmatched! So here at Sun & Swell we are ALL for gift giving, that’s why we have provided a guide for low waste gift giving. We’ve done the research for you and now you can take these ideas and run!
1. Zero waste starter kit
We love this gift because it truly keeps on giving. It’s perfect to introduce a friend or family member to the world of low waste. You can mix and match depending on your budget:
- Reusable cutlery set
- Metal straw
- Reusable zip lock bags
- Beeswax wrap
- Reusable coffee mug
- Eco friendly holiday gift box
2. Donate in their name or pay for their membership to a nonprofit organization
This one is great and it can be extra special if you pick something that means a lot to your loved one. One example is getting someone a membership to a nonprofit organization. It gives them access to a new community and information to volunteer. Also, a way to volunteer together!
3. Gift Card to a sustainable store
A great resource here is the B Corporation Directory which has all the B Corporations listed so you can search for companies to see if they prioritize environmental and social issues.
Spend $100 at Sun & Swell and get a free $20 gift certificate! This goes until 12/24/20.
4. At-home compost!
This one can be a really practical gift that will change that person's entire waste stream and give them a cool at-home project! You can find some great options on Amazon, or better yet, see if your local gardening store or hardware had one!
5. Gift an online subscription
What a great way to spark learning or good habits in a loved one.
Ultimately, you know the person you're giving a gift to best and that means it may take some hard thinking to make sure the gift is personalized and special, but we hope these ideas can be a launching pad for you all to give the best gifts.
