As the festive season summons upon us, so does gift shopping. This holiday season it’s more important than ever to support our local sustainable retailers as well as the planet, while thinking of our gift giving.
So, we decided to do just that. Here are a few of our go-to sustainable retailers for this year’s holiday gift guide!
Scoon is an online curated sustainable concept store, with products ranging from beauty to clothing to lifestyle products. This ILIA MULTI-STICK is the perfect stocking stuffer, versatile and sustainable.
A Dutch based ethical/sustainable concept shop, with offerings from sustainable jeans such as MUD to hand-made ceramics. For someone getting started on their sustainability journey this book on building a zero waste life is a great option!
Another beautiful sustainable concept store, with locations all over Germany as well as an online shopping platform. Avoiding single use plastic is inevitably important, so spreading the word high and low even amongst the holidays is a great way to honor our one and only home! See below the 24BOTTLES infuser bottle, which can be used for not only water, but also as a tea or fruit infuser.
The Dutch based clothing shop carries many sustainable brands and even has a I <3 Eco tab on their website to help you with your sustainable selection. These adorable socks make for a present that will surely bring a smile to anyone’s face.
Rrrevolve Fair Fashion
The Zurich based eco shop caters to all things fair and sustainable. Their online shop also has a vast variety of great items, like these organic candles that make a great gift from anyone from a significant other to a Secret Santa.
At BLEIB SAUBER they believe transparency and sustainability go hand in hand. On their website you will find a description of the practices of companies they carry and their certifications. For a slightly bigger gift this PINQPONQ backpack is versatile and yet stylish in it’s simplicity.
We love a company who puts doing good above all. From their efforts of fair wages and sustainability to their support on charity initiatives Artesanos is one for the books. These salad servers made from recycled wood make a great gift for your foodie friend.
Geitenwollenwinkel sells all vegan, honest and green products. They have a store in Amsterdam and a webshop where you can find products from all sorts of sustainable brands. They sell clothes, shoes and accessories to stay warm, fashionable and sustainable this winter. For example this beanie, made of 100% organic cotton.
This holiday season remember to support these and many more passionate companies that support our planet and people.
