This is such a strange transition in our world today. But have you ever thought to yourself, “why do we always dispose of our paper towels?”
I’ve been incredibly happy with our switch to reusable towels and have found it incredibly easy to keep up with the “extra” laundry. Plus, now I never have to think about buying these from the store. Ever.
We wash ourselves with towels and then throw them in the laundry. Why aren’t we doing the same with our messes? Unpaper towels are such an impactful way to reduce your (or your giftee) waste.
Gift these to any person in your life and I promise they will look at you weird, but then slowly appreciate the amount of money they get to save every month. Soon, they will love you for the money back in their wallet! The gift that keeps on giving!
Don’t think you’re special person is ready for the full transition? Try these instead
I first heard about this company by getting gifted it myself. The products that they use are all the good ones you can pronounce and commonly find. Gifting this to your loved ones won’t only open their options to more eco-friendly products, but will make their grocery shopping that much easier. Everything gets sent right to your door
I recommend these ones because they offer a variety of sizes so that your 8 oz. mug isn’t overwhelmed with a 16 oz. straw. Most people don’t think twice about straws– and it is especially hard when you are out and about. Don’t expect these straws to change your loved ones over night. I still struggle with remembering to use mine. But eco-conscious living isn’t about being perfect. It is about doing little things that add up to big impacts.
Looking for something that is a little more portable? Check out this collapsible straw.
Have a traveler in your life or someone who has consider adventuring out into the world? Get them this Sea to Summit towel
It is an ultra fast drying towel that can be used virtually anywhere. When I travel I make sure and bring this towel. It has even been a trusty multi-use companion when I needed a blanket to wrap in, a pillow, and even a mat to lay on the floor. It makes traveling and camping a breeze when you don’t have a clunky towel.
The nomad in your life will find this handy tool oddly practical. With just some soap and a little labor, clothes can be washed and cleaned in a few minutes.
Huh? Yup. Nuts.
The most unique sustainable gift! Just check out this post all about soap nuts and give the gift of completely sustainable laundry products!
I can’t imagine a more unique gift this holiday season.
If I had enough kitchen space I would have over 20 mugs because there are just so many that I love. However, you only really need one or two so gift your loved ones a mug that is functional and dependable.
Inspire your loved ones to start composting this new year! Does this feel like a big jump for some of your not-so-eco-friendly family members? Fear not– give them this blog post to read and learn the many uses of composting.
I’m pretty sure we all aspire to pack our own lunches every day and live that real sustainable life. For the person in your life who has even mentioned mean planning or trying to save money– they need this lunch box. I love how convenient it is, compact, and easy to clean. Win, win, win!
This has to be one of the cooler gifts to receive. Fresh herbs any season? No more running to the store last minute?

Adventure seekers and park lovers will appreciate this compact doggy bowl. It’s sleek and compact making it possible to take this on any adventure with a dog.
Paperless, reusable, digital, and convenient. This notebook is probably not something your loved one will buy themselves, so do them a favor and give them the gift of 2020 technology. They’ll never have to buy another note taker ever again!
I could rave about these bags all day. They are truly so versatile and compact. I love the feeling of reusing a quality bag over and over again. It doesn’t contain smell so that it can be used for all types of foods.
Why not get your loved ones into reducing their footprint? This may still be a new trend to adopt, but it really does last much longer than a bottle of shampoo and is 10x less waste.
What better way to top off a sustainable gift than wrapping it in a reusable grocery bag? One can never have too many reusable bags lying around.
