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

7. Compostable Sponges, £6

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.

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!

  • My name is Hailey Garcia and I am from New Jersey. My herpes virus turned to war after 2 years of living with it. I have tried different medical procedures to cure my herpes but to no avail. Most people think herpes is only a minor skin irritation of which herpes has long term effects on health and passes through the bloodstream and can be easily contracted through sexual intercourse. I knew I had herpes from the first day I started feeling itchy in my pubic area and the pain was very unbearable. I couldn’t stand it anymore. After 2 years of trying other means to get rid of it, I had to contact Doctor Odunga to help me with a permanent cure. I saw his email and whats-app number from a testimony I read online from a lady who was also helped by him in curing infertility problems, I had faith and contacted him. He assured me of his work and I ordered his herbal medicine. Within 5 days, I didn’t feel any pain anymore and within 2 weeks, my skin was all cleared and smooth. I am very grateful to you sir and I write this testimony as others have done to bring those having faith to you sir. If you have herpes or other similar disease and you want it cured, kindly contact Doctor Odunga, Whats-App (wa.me/+2348167159012) OR Email odungaspelltemple@gmail.com

  • I am a very happy woman with the help of Dr Krish Spiritual who helped me restore my relationship with my ex husband. My name is Agnes Smith and I am from Alaska, USA. I met Dr Krish Spiritual through a testimony online and I never thought I would have my ex husband back after 4 years of separation. After my contact with his email, he told me not to worry and I would really be happy as I am now. Trusting in his words was the right decision for me. After 2 days, my ex husband called me saying that he wants to return back to me and live with me forever and I was very shocked. This made me believe that Dr Krish is really a very great spiritual man. Today, I am very happy to write this testimony about him and want others to testify to his power as I am currently happy in my restored marriage. Don’t waste time on that relationship problem. Contact Dr Krish Spiritual directly through his email at lordkrishshrine@gmail.com to help you solve that relationship problems in your marriage

  • Read this!!!

    I made millions through lottery spells with the help of Doctor Odunga. I contacted Doctor Odunga through his email: odungaspelltemple@gmail.com to perform a spell for me to win the Powerball Lottery in Florida. After I contacted him, he replied to me and said I should only pay $200 for the spell and I should trust in him. It was hard at first to let my money go but I had to keep faith. I was surprised when he gave me the winning numbers to play the Saturday Powerball Lottery. I bought the ticket and truly speaking, the winning numbers emerged from the Powerball numbers and I was the winner of the lottery. I won $535.4 Million USD as the Powerball Lottery Winner. I am very happy to share this testimony of Doctor Odunga and want you too to meet him at his email: odungaspelltemple@gmail.com OR Whats-app +2348167159012

  • Finally!!! I am the happiest woman to be called a mother soon. I am saying this because I am very grateful to Dr. Odunga for helping me with my relationship problems faced in my marriage due to the issues of infertility after 7 years of marriage. My husband and I have tried so many options for a successful fertility including IVF but it was futile. My husband’s family have said different abusive words to me and my husband and he almost stopped loving me after many years of marriage without a child from me. It was a long time of sorrow for me and it affected me mentally. Dr. Odunga was introduced to me by a friend whom he helped and that was how I contacted Dr Odunga at odungaspelltemple@gmail.com and within 2 days of contact, he did the spell and I successfully conceived after sleeping with my husband as he said. It was very surprising and overwhelming with joy and still unbelievable because I have been seeing testimonies of spell casters but never believed I would be helped by one. Dr. Odunga is indeed a great spell caster. Get in contact with this man to help you solve your problems at odungaspelltemple@gmail.com or Whats App his phone number at +2348167159012
