Top 10 plastic free gifts

1. Soaps, from £1.60

helleo vegan and natural beer soap.

Soap is a great gift to give and ones that are natural and have beautiful branding and packaging are a winner. One of our favourites is Helleo, a small, creative, sustainable business located on the Greek island of Crete, producing high quality natural, handmade soaps from organic extra virgin olive oil. Founder Manos comes from a family of olive farmers, inheriting his own olive groves from his grandparents. He has continued to cultivate these olive trees in the natural way, with no pesticides, tilling or burning. But instead of focusing on selling the raw olive oil, Manos has developed the business to make soap from the quality olive oil he produces. The uniqueness of the Helleo products and production process is illustrated on their beautifully designed packaging so that the customer can enjoy the story.  All materials used in the packaging are plastic-free and 100% recyclable or compostable.

2. Soap Dishes, from £4.99

These handmade ceramic soap dishes by HKA Ceramics are made on a potters wheel in Petersfield, Hampshire. They are a perfect gift for yourself or your eco-friendly friend as they provide a plastic-free place for your soap to sit and last longer. Why not add this soap dish to your order when you purchase one of our soaps by Bean & Boy or Wild Sage & Co.

3. Lunchbox, from £27.95

black and blum stainless steel lunchbox 600ml.

This would be a super useful present to gift as an alternative to the plastic free lunchboxes you get on the high-street. Black+Blum's stainless steel lunchbox is the first truly leak-proof stainless steel lunch box. There is a silicone seal and valve to create a secure vacuum sealed closure to ensure absolutely no leakage. The strap, available in two colours Olive and Ocean and holds everything together, including the fork. Dan Black and Martin Blum try to create designs which will function for years to come and which encourage people to live and enjoy being more environmentally responsible. 

4. Organic Bamboo & Linen Flannel, £5

Tabitha Eve's super soft, silky, multi-purpose flannel is kind to the skin and environmentally friendly, it is a little piece of luxury making it an ideal present paired with something else like a Wild Sage & Co. Face Mask or Lamazuna's Zero Waste Cleansing Bar. Some of the face cloths out there can contain tiny bits of plastic that sadly end up in our oceans and so this is a fantastic alternative! Made using organically grown, highly sustainable bamboo fibres and linen, this flannel is incredibly kind to your complexion and the environment and it is so much gentler than a standard muslin cloth.

5. The Kind Box, from £30

The Kind Box is a sustainable gift box from The Kind Store.

7. Compostable Sponges, £6

ten & co compostable sponges in sage, white and blue.

Sponges may not seem like the most exciting gift but we love them! They are just so practical and pretty all wrapped up in one and a fab alternative to the microfibre sponges and cloths that are on the market at the moment. These 100% biodegradeable sponge cloths by Ten & Co. are made from cellulose (wood pulp) & cotton composition and so can be thrown away with your compostable waste. If you are looking for a useful present for your friend or family this is the one for you!

8. Chocolate, form £1.49

This is a great plastic free alternative to cake mixes found in supermarkets and packaged in plastic, but is also a super fun and unique way to gift yourself or a fellow foodie something yummy! This bottle contains a deliciously indulgent combination of walnuts and rich Belgian dark chocolate all tumbled together to create a yummy moist brownie. If it didn't say it on the bottle, you'd never know that this brownie is vegan!

  • Thank you DOCTOR ODUNGA for making me fertile after 22 years of marriage. I am a barren woman, in fact now it is, I was a barren woman. I say this testimony in regards to Doctor Odunga who granted my wish after 22 years of marriage. No one in my people and friends or family believed I would ever get pregnant, not to talk of giving birth. Now I am a mother of twins? I am indeed the happiest woman to say this testimony for everyone to read. I am Eunice Stein. I am 54 years of age. This is my first writing on the net about anything this serious, especially as for 22 years I have not been pregnant once since I got married to my husband. Please, do you need help with your fertility problem? CONTACT DOCTOR ODUNGA. Do you need your problem solved such as getting your ex back? CONTACT DOCTOR ODUNGA. He is the solution to all your problems. His online email is odungaspelltemple@gmail.com he will solve all your problems OR Whats-App/Call +2348167159012
