ERA Evergreen

Who is sick of receiving gifts that contribute to household clutter while also harming the environment?

We don't know about you, but if the last three years have taught us anything, it's that health and nature are the two most crucial aspects of our life. And do you know what the best holiday gift you can give your loved ones is? Of course, eco-friendly, sustainable presents!

It may sound too wonderful to be true, but there are numerous environmentally friendly gifts you may offer your friends and family. To get you started, here are nine CHEAP and ECO-FRIENDLY holiday gift ideas!

Living composter 

Do you want to inspire your family members to repurpose their trash and live a cleaner, more sustainable lifestyle? Providing them with a living composter should be enough! It's attractive enough to put on the kitchen counter AND powerful enough to process up to three people's food waste! Living composters are extremely simple to use and require little maintenance, making them one of the greatest eco-friendly Christmas gifts to help reuse trash for plant use!


Reusable shopping bags 

Anyone who wishes to avoid using plastic bags and limit their environmental effect would appreciate getting earth-friendly reusable shopping bags! These bags often come in a variety of sizes and can serve as a replacement for practically any shopping bag your loved ones require for grocery and retail shopping!


Stainless water bottles 

Ah, yes. Everyone deserves a cheap, eco-friendly Christmas gift!

Give your friends and loved ones a reusable stainless steel water bottle that is both cute and functional to help them quit using plastic water bottles! They can usually keep cold drinks cold for 24 hours and hot drinks hot for 12 hours, and they don't produce waste or contaminate the environment!


Bamboo bath towels

You could argue that there aren't many more practical gifts than bath towels. Is there anyone here who does not require one? Bamboo bath towels are incredibly soft and naturally antimicrobial, made from 100% viscose organic bamboo. These towels also absorb three times as much as standard cotton towels. They're also a good environmental choice because bamboo requires less energy and water to grow than other plants used for textile production. Not to mention that bamboo towels are biodegradable at the end of their lifecycle, making them suitable for municipal composting programs.


Audiobook subscription 

Do you have a bookworm on your Christmas list? With an audiobook subscription, you can give him the gift of limitless reading without harming the environment!

Audiobook subscriptions allow your recipients to read a limitless number of books from their catalog each month, as well as premium selections (depending on the type of subscription). It's also one of the most environmentally friendly Christmas gifts you can think of because it reduces the amount of paper books utilized.


At-home spa treatment 

Do you think spa treatments are too pricey? Instead, give your loved one the gift of an at-home spa session! This allows the recipient to pamper herself as much as she wants at her leisure! Another fantastic piece of information? These treatments include a few chemicals and are a present that keeps on giving because your loved one will receive several uses for the products.


House plants 

Are you looking for a gift that will increase your attitude and productivity? Choose a house plant! Even if the majority of the folks on your list don't have a "green thumb," plants like succulents are simple to care for and add a feeling of serenity to a room. It's also cute enough to hang in almost any room, and it only requires watering every 10 days, making it simple to care for and enjoy.



Bamboo toothbrush 

Toothbrushes may not appear to be a wonderful gift. Still, they can be a terrific alternative to your list of eco-friendly Christmas gifts, either on their own or in combination with another item.

Bamboo toothbrushes, in particular, outlast plastic toothbrushes while being less harmful to the environment. Please put them in cute eco-friendly packaging for a cute and sustainable present.


Travel utensil set 

Help someone you know get rid of the plastic that comes with dining on the go! Travel utensil sets can be stored in a purse or briefcase and quickly produced when needed for takeaway. They're also great for camping or picnics, and they're not made of PLASTIC! That, we believe, is a sufficient cause!
