Planet-Loving Gifts for Environmentalists

  The Perfect Gifts for EnvironmentalistsDo you have planet-loving people in your life? Then this gift guide is for you! Each gift we pick to go on this list is entirely made with the planet in mind. WHAT MAKES THESE GIFTS SO GREAT FOR ENVIRONMENTALISTS?It’s important that before we add anything to these gift guides, we know the brands creating the products are doing their best to keep their carbon footprint low. We ask a series of questions for each product added to see if it fits the bill. They are as follows: 1) What is the gift made out of? The gift we add must be made from eco-friendly materials that are easy on the planet. 2) Who made the gift? The maker behind the item is just as important and should be compensated fairly for their time. 3) Does the brand implement sustainability within its entire business? We don’t want surface-level eco-friendly products; we want brands who genuinely care about sustainability and enforce it throughout their business wherever they can - from shipping to giving back. 4) Is the gift practical & something they can use for many years? We’ve all been given gifts we could have done without, but we find every gift we add to these lists are practical and going to be loved for a very long time. When it comes to environmentalists' gifts, we want to make sure to only list the best materials - often recycled or organic - and gifts we know they can use for many years.  Now, our favorite gifts for environmentalists: 1) Bralette & Undie Set from KnickeyI absolutely love my Knickey and undies and bralettes. This is a great gift idea for environmentalists because these undergarments are super comfortable and breathable (environmentalists have things to do!), but also feel feminine and stylish. Good for the wearer and the planet, these are made from a variety of eco-friendly materials like GOTS and OEKO-TEX certified organic cotton, TENCEL, and recycled nylon. Not only that, but they’re also Fair Trade Certified, which means everyone involved in the supply chain was treated fairly. They have a recycling program for old undies, too!code: SUSTAINABLYCHIC10 for 10% off your order Shop Knickey 2) Bee Charm from Washed AshoreThis versatile bee charm is meant to be a “symbol of unwavering devotion to one's purpose,’ while also paying tribute to our ever-valuable pollinator friends. You can add a pendant clip to seamlessly clip on the charm to any chain, necklace, or bracelet, so you can wear it any way you want. It’s made from 100% recycled metal and post-consumer upcycled stones. Washed Ashore uses low emissions and clean water manufacturing, and everything is shipped using carbon-neutral methods.

The wool for Yabal’s 100% wool blankets come from sheep on local- family-owned farms. The white, gray, and black colors are the three natural sheep’s wool tones, while the other colors are added using natural plant-based dyes like elderberry fruits, tree barks, plant leaves, cochineal insects, and indigo. Everything is ethically handmade from start to finish. Shop Yabal 4) Recycled Ceramic Tableware from LOIS THE STOREThis would be a great gift idea for the environmentalist in your life who enjoyed hosting loved ones in their home. In order to increase the circularity of ceramics, LOIS THE STORE makes plates, bowls, and lids (which come in a few different sizes) in Japan out of particularly recycled materials.We especially love how these dishes come with lids, which can seriously cut down on post-meal clean-up time and extra containers used to store leftovers!code: SUSTAINABLYCHIC10 for 10% off Shop Lo

5) Tagua Disc Earrings from Arlokea

These earrings—which are available in four gorgeous colors—are made out of natural tagua nuts. Coming from a type of palm tree, the tagua nut is similar to ivory, but a better (and animal-free) alternative. I love the idea of wearing seeds as jewelry because it can be symbolic of the metaphorical seeds environmentalists plant in the lives of those around them as they work to make our world a more sustainable place. Plus, these are ethically made by artisans in Ecuador.

6) Organic Sheet Set from Delilah Home

With the amount of eco-anxiety most environmentalists have to deal with, I’m sure they will appreciate any help they can get with some much-needed rest! Delilah Home carries bed sheet sets made from 100% GOTS certified organic cotton and hemp. They’re vegan and ethically made in a family-run factory in Portugal, too.

These sheets have earned lots of awards, too: 2021 Good Housekeeping Award Winner for Best Bedding, 2020 Wall Street Journal “Worth the Splurge” Bedsheets, 2021 Sleep Foundation Best Cooling Sheets

Completely free from melamine and BPA, they’re made from eco-friendly and plant-based materials like corn and bamboo. Plus, they’re dishwasher and microwave safe.

Sustainably Chic | Sustainable Fashion & Lifestyle Blog | The Best Gifts for Environmentalists | Biodegradable Phone Case from Incipio.jpg

9) Biodegradable Phone Case by Incipio

Billions of cell phones are sold every year to consumers, & I would say most of these phones are held in some type of protection case. There are already so many environmental issues with the actual phone itself, why create more waste with its outer shell?! Thanks to brands like Incipio, you can find an eco-friendly option that works, & avoid having to add more waste to the planet with a plastic one. This one is fully compostable and 100% plant-based!!

10) Hat from TenTree

A hat that plants trees!

Every item you buy at TenTree plants 10 trees (hence the name) as part of their target to plant 1 billion trees by 2030.

Their hats are also a great price, and they have styles for both men and women. From festival hats like this one pictured to your basic ball cap, there is something for everyone.
