Feel good about giving while softening your ecological footprint by shopping Eco-Friendly Gifts. These products are all sustainably-sourced and produced, and made from low-impact materials that won’t leave a dent on the environment.
With glaciers melting, temperatures rising and landfills reaching saturation point, being mindful of our ecological footprint and the overall environment is more important now than ever.
If you know someone who already has or is trying to embrace a sustainable lifestyle, giving them a thoughtful eco-friendly present is a great way to support their decision and Mother Earth.
Don’t know where to start? Fear not, here are some of the best practical sustainable gift ideas that they everyone will look forward to receiving:
LARQ Water Bottle
LARQ calls itself the world’s “first self-cleaning water bottle” and portable water purification device. Launched through a Kickstarter campaign that broke the record for the largest-ever crowd-funded hydration campaign, LARQ’s signature water bottle uses a patented UV-C LED technology to kill up to 99 percent of bacteria, odors and viruses in your water — and in your water bottle. The best part: it does all of this without you ever having to replace a filter.
The minimalist bottle is double-walled to keep drinks chilled for up to 24 hours and is made from a safe, non-toxic material that is BPA and plastic-free.
Blueair Blue Pure 211+ Air Purifier
Everyone deserves to have clean, germ-free air in their home so you don’t have to worry about seasonal allergies on top of Covid-19. But the best air purifiers don’t have to be bulky or energy inefficent — just check out the killer, eco-friendly Blueair 211+ Air Purifier.
Not only does it have a 3-stage filtration process that captures 99.7% of airborne pollutants, the Blueair boasts high energy efficiency too, claiming to use no more power than a single light bulb.
The 360 degree air intake means you can place it anywhere in a room, and because it performs no louder than a whisper on the lowest setting (31 decibels), the 211+ is our favorite air purifier for apartments and shared spaces.

Share the happiness of a new bundle of joy with a thoughtful eco-friendly, sustainable newborn baby gift. Our all natural baby gift basket is to bring smiles to proud parents with an all natural, eco-friendly collection of bowls, wipes, cutlery and more.
United by Blue SoftHemp Socks
The hype over hemp has died off in recent years, with hemp beauty products replaced by that other new buzzword, CBD. But hemp remains a reliable — and sustainable — material for everything from socks to tees to furniture.
Philly-based outdoor retailer, United by Blue, makes a cozy pair of socks out of their signature “SoftHemp” material, which takes stalks of hemp fiber and mixes it with nylon, cotton and a touch of spandex for stretch. We love the cozy, cabin-ready prints and the fact that the company says it removes one pound of trash from oceans and waterways for every product sold.
Zeal Optics See Grass Sunglasses
Your next pair of shades might actually be plant-based: Zeal Optics’ See Grass collection is made from grass and recycled plastic bottles to create durable, stylish sunglass frames.
Not only are the frames made from plant fibers, their Ellume Polarized lenses are too. Zeal Optics says the material actually contributes to crisper, clearer vision and higher-quality colors. What can’t plants do?
All the lenses eliminate 99.9% of glare and block 100% of harmful UVA/B/C rays. The unisex frames are totally stylish too, working as well for an outdoor adventure as they do for drinks on the patio.
