Low-Waste Holiday Gift Guide

Low Waste Gift Guide

As the holiday season approaches, we are bombarded with reminders to show our loved ones how much they mean to us in the form of gifts. Simultaneously, consumers feel the burden of anthropogenic climate change and want to do their part to help the Earth. 

This holiday season, give the gift of a better future for our planet and all who inhabit it. Low-waste gifts will show your loved ones just how much you care, while helping them decrease the amount of toxins, chemicals, and plastics in their daily routines. Whether your loved ones are only beginning their low-waste journey, or they’re a seasoned pro, we believe our products can find a special place in anyone’s home.

We offer plenty of options that help eliminate plastic usage in the kitchen. Oursolid dish soap is free of plastic packaging, dyes and artificial fragrance, and leaves dishes squeaky clean. Small but mighty,our bar can replace approximately 2-3 bottles of traditional dish soap.

Stocking Stuffers

In the colder and drier months, we all need a goodlip balm. Luckily, unlike the wasteful packaging of most traditional lip balms, The Earthling Co.’s peppermint lip balm is packaged 100% plastic-free and is 100% biodegradable! It also contains organic ingredients and sustainably sourced beeswax. Our lip balm will leave lips super soft and dare we say, mistletoe ready.

A toothbrush may not strike you as the most exciting gift. But how about a toothbrush that, unlike its traditional counterparts, won’t sit in a landfill for 1,000 years? We think that is something to be excited about! Our bamboo toothbrush is plastic packaging free and backyard compostable: just remove the nylon bristles!

Soap bars are a useful staple in any home: ours are gently crafted with plant-based ingredients and scented delicately with essential oils. Our soap bars come in a variety of delightful variations: whether for simple hand washing, or for a luxurious experience in the shower, they are sure to please!
