What is a Zero Waste Gift, and Why Should You Buy Them?

Whether you're new to the zero waste philosophy or have already made the switch, helping the environment and making sustainable choices is more than a movement. It's a lifestyle.

By giving zero-waste gifts to the people you love, you make sure the products will last them for years. You'll also take one step ahead in preventing more plastic waste piling up in landfills.

Read on to discover the best zero waste gifts that'll impress your giftee and help save the planet one small step at a time.

What Are Zero Waste Products?

Zero waste products are eco-friendly products that have either no packaging at all or reusable wrapping or packaging. Many zero-waste products are made to last for years, which means you can use and reuse them until the end of their lifecycle.

Zero Waste Gift Ideas We Love

If you're looking for a gift for someone who's into a zero-waste living, below you'll find our favourite zero-waste products.

Soy Wax Candles

Everyone loves getting scented candles as eco-friendly gifts. Even more so when they're made of environmentally-friendly soy wax. Also, plant-based wax is vegan and a much better alternative to beeswax and paraffin wax.

We recommend our Big Amber Bergamot & Bamboo Soy Wax candle made from 100% palm-free plant-based wax, paraben-free fragrance oils, and a wood wick.

Reusable Coffee Cup

Reusable coffee cups are the best zero waste gifts for people on the go. They come in a variety of different materials, ranging from rice husks, biodegradable plastic, glass, stainless steel, and even coffee husks.

With reusable coffee cups, you eliminate the need for disposable plastic cups that end up in landfills. If you give them as gifts, you can personalize them to suit your giftee's individual taste and style.

Our Recycled Rice Husk Coffee Cup is made from rice husks and is BPA, silicone, and melamine free. It comes in several different colours and sizes and has a leak-proof flip lid and a non-slip base to keep the beverage and the coffee drinker safe.

Reusable Makeup Remover Pads

Zero-waste products are gaining popularity in the beauty industry as well. If your gift recipient is a makeup lover, they'll love a pack of reusable makeup remover pads made of bamboo or other sustainable materials.

Instead of using disposable makeup wipes and cotton pads, your giftee can now wash and reuse the makeup remover pads over and over again.

Compostable Dishcloths

Using biodegradable materials in the kitchen is becoming more and more popular, replacing disposable products made of plastic or polyester. This includes sponges, dishcloths, drinking straws, and teatowels.

If your giftee loves cooking and homemaking, they'll love plastic-free gifts like our compostable Swedish dishcloths. They're made from fully compostable cotton, have zero packaging, and are long-lasting and durable enough to use for years to come.

Surprise a Loved One and Take Care of the Planet With These Zero Waste Gifts

If you're looking for an eco-friendly gift to surprise someone who's passionate about conscious living, these zero waste gifts are a wonderful choice.

From reusable coffee cups and cutlery to fully biodegradable teatowels, gifts don't have to be wrapped in fancy packaging to be meaningful.
