Want to be a little more planet friendly when Christmas shopping this year? Look no further than our 2021 Gift Ideas for the Eco-Conscious!

Jolly Festive Gift Ideas for the Eco-Conscious 2021

When shopping for the perfect gift we often find ourselves contemplating where to get the most original or practical present…but what about eco-friendly? And while Christmas is a time for indulgence, it doesn’t mean we get to forget about looking after our planet in the process.

So for 2021, we’ve put together a list of Gift Ideas for the Eco-Conscious. We’re not about to claim that any of these gifts are going to fix climate change. But they are all produced by small businesses who are trying to make products that in some way or another benefit the enviroment. Whether that be through using recycled materials or encouraging us to move away from single use plastic, they’re all doing their part. Where possible, we’ve tried to include a little explanation as to why each product and/or company is included on this list, but if you know of something that we don’t then please feel free to reach out –we’re all in this together.

Scroll down for all the details and links.  Happy Shopping!
