Sustainability is the word of 2019, and everyone is looking for ways to be kinder to the Earth – after all, it’s the only one we’ve got! Here are some planet-friendly presents that’ll delight your eco-conscious loved ones and take care of our environment.
With fabric made from recycled water bottles, the Sling Bag from Bellroy is a convenient, beautifully-designed way to carry your essentials when you head out that’s also helping to reduce the amount of excess plastic in landfill.
Speaking of water bottles, people buy around 1 million single-use water bottles every day worldwide, with around 5.3 million Australians buying bottled water each week. A high-quality reusable water bottle like the Clima series from 24Bottles is a great way to cut down on disposable water bottles that largely end up in landfill. Plus, the Clima bottles insulated design helps to keep drinks cold for a whole day, which is just the ticket as the weather warms up and we crave a cool drink. We love the natural feel of the Sequoia Wood print, but 24Bottles come in a gorgeous range of colours and patterns to suit everyone you know.
Small changes add up, and everything we can do to reduce the volume of single-use plastic going into landfill is helpful. Lightweight and convenient, the Ever Eco Bamboo Cutlery Set is a perfect companion for picnics, takeaway lunches or even visits to the food court. Keep the handy carry pouch in your bag, and you can leave the disposable plastic cutlery behind. Goes great with the Ever Eco Stainless Steel Straw!
Now that most supermarkets have phased out plastic bags, carrying your own is the only practical choice. Baggu’s Standard Tote makes it easy to be ready every time you go shopping, with durable bags in a range of gorgeous prints. Folding down to fit in a pocket-friendly pouch, you’ll always be ready to grab groceries, duck to the beach or hit the boutiques with your own eye-catching bag ready to hand
We love the organic colours of the Seaweed design, but be sure to check out the full Baggu range to find that perfect present!
We’ve recommended these gorgeous cups on some of our other gift guides, but we can’t help ourselves! Not only are they charming, handmade cups with unique finishes, they’re also made locally in Arcadia’s Brunswick studio. Everyone should have a reusable coffee cup these days, and Arcadia Scott’s range are distinctive and lovingly crafted.
