Eco Friendly Christmas Gifts
This month we have compiled a list of eco friendly Christmas gifts to help you enjoy a greener festive season and new year.
As well as our own sustainable gifts, we are sharing other zero-waste presents that are top of our eco-friendly Christmas list.
So join us in buying mindfully and continuing into 2020 with as little waste as possible!
Help friends and family live sustainably in the new year and take the need for single use plastics out of lunchtime.
These lovely, eco friendly Christmas gifts will also help friends and family to stay healthy and save money in 2020. They remove the temptation to pick up a sugary treat on the go, packing healthier and cheaper options from home instead!
We’ll be teaming our Eco Lunch Gift Set with this brilliant rCUP from Cornish brand A Short Walk. They have designed the world’s first reusable coffee cup made from recycled paper coffee cups.
Designed to last more than 10 years, the non spill cup will keep your favourite hot drink warm on the post-Christmas dinner stomp!
Eco Travel Gift Set
Our Eco Travel Gift Set is packed with eco friendly Christmas gifts to keep next year’s getaways sustainable.
The handmade Toiletry Bag is great for keeping travel essentials in one place, with a splash proof lining and a brass zipper. The Reusable Bamboo Face Wipes and Makeup Pads can be used time and time again removing the need for single use face wipes.
You’ll find all of our Eco Christmas Gift Sets here.
We’ll be popping one of these brilliant biodegradable toothbrushes into our Toiletry Bags too! Truthbrush was founded in Devon by duo Catherine and Catherine who wished for a toothbrush that was both beautiful and biodegradable.
They created the Truthbrush, with a rounded ergonomic handle crafted from sustainable, organic bamboo which is naturally anti bacterial.
Every year over a billion plastic toothbrushes are thrown away worldwide, ending up in landfill, in the sea or washed up on a beach. Choosing a bamboo toothbrush with a biodegradable handle is a small change that can lead to a big difference.
The last of our eco friendly Christmas gifts will be a hit with the bakers!
Our Bread Bags are perfect for storing loaves, rolls and patisserie to keep guests fed and happy throughout the festive season.
This wonderful linen Bee Bread Bag, features a design from our Honey Bee Collection, hand printed in our Cornish studios using water based ink.
It is both sustainable and eco friendly, getting rid of the need for bulky bread bins and helping you to say goodbye to plastic bag storage.
Turn the top down on your bee bread bag to create a pretty basket perfect for serving bread and rolls with the Christmas feasts!
To accompany our Bee Bread bag we’ll be treating our friends to some beautiful honey this Christmas.
Black Bee Honey source British honey straight from the hive. As well as producing their own honey, Black Bee Honey work with select producers in the UK supporting both Britain’s bees and beekeepers.
The company takes their name from the Black Bee, the native British honey bee. After losing most of their natural habitat of woodlands and wildflower meadows the Black Bee was verging on extinction. Based in Somerset, Black Bee Honey support efforts to protect the Black Bee in dedicated reserves in South West England.
Their Festive Honey is light in colour but a heavyweight in flavour. The honey combines fresh, herbal and lightly menthol flavours with a sweet, ripe finish. It also has many health benefits perfect for those colder months!
The final of our eco friendly Christmas gift suggestions will be one to look forward to in the new year!
Our workshops are a great idea for ethical gift giving. They can be enjoyed together, with a group of friends, siblings and families… or for some time out alone! The exciting, hands-on workshops take place in our bright airy studio space on The Mount Edgcumbe Estate.
Tickets for the workshops are now available online, take a look at the dates here.
