Eco-friendly Gifts to Encourage Environmental Consciousness Amongst Your Loved Ones

Here at Linenly, we believe bamboo is great for not only our health and comfort, but also the environment. Often bamboo is compared to organic cotton. Organic cotton is cotton which is grown organically, free of synthetic chemicals. However, what we don’t understand is that although a product is made from an organic source, it is not always better. In this post, we talk about the impact organic cotton has on our environment and other factors. Keep reading to find out more!

KeepCup

Do you know someone who is addicted to buying a cup of coffee or hot drink every morning? A KeepCup is the perfect gift. Australians alone throw out over 2.7 million disposable coffee cups daily. KeepCups are a great alternative to disposable cups, especially when you're purchasing more than one coffee a day. They are both reusable and recyclable and are a great investment. Not only are KeepCups eco-friendly, they are also quite stylish and convenient. There are a range of different colours and styles of keep cups available in cafes and online. Often a coffee is made and forgotten about when we become busy. The great thing about glass KeepCups is that they keep your drink nice and warm for a long period of time.

Safety Razor

Both females and males shave a minimum of once a week, with some shaving more. Gillette recommends disposing a razor after just ten shaves. The Environmental Protection Agency estimated 2 billion disposable razors and blades are thrown out in the U.S yearly. Opting for a  reusable shaver is a great way to encourage both your female and male friends, and family to become more environmentally conscious. 

Stainless steel safety razors can be found at a number of stores including the local supermarkets such as Woolworths. You can find safety razors in a range of colours and lengths online for a more personalised gift. Not only are safety razors eco-friendly, but they are also great for those with sensitive skin as they cause less irritation on the skin compared to disposable razors. Both the safety razor and blade are plastic free and recyclable. They are pricier than a regular disposable razor, however they are a great investment as they last for years.

Reusable Water Bottles

If you know someone that drinks a lot of water and is always buying a plastic water bottle, a reusable water bottle is the perfect way to stay hydrated and care for the environment. There are a number of different types of water bottles made from different materials such as ceramic, glass, stainless steel and even paper. Stainless steel water bottles are especially great for the summer time as the bottle keeps your water nice and cool all day long. You can find these reusable water bottles in a range of different capacities, from as little as 350ml to up to 2 litres. You can find a number of different colours and styles in store or online. Beysis is a great company that sells water bottles which can be personalised with up to 18 letters for a special loved one. This is a great gift option for everyone!

Eco-Friendly And Cruelty-Free Makeup

If you know someone that loves makeup, eco-friendly and cruelty-free makeup is a great gift idea. There is a variety of different makeup brands to choose from, but not all of these brands create their makeup with high quality and earth-friendly ingredients. Most drugstore and high end makeup brands use substances that can lead to health problems and damage your skin. 

Not only is the makeup potentially dangerous, but often the makeup is tested on animals. Alongside this, the packaging is often non-recyclable. A few eco-friendly makeup brands include: Kat Von D, Lush Cosmetics, BareFaced Beauty and Clean-Faced Cosmetics. Purchase makeup from sustainable and ethical brands to support and encourage environmental consciousness.
