Five eco-friendly gift ideas

We love all things sustainable here at Resonates, and with Christmas looming we asked the team to share their favourite eco-friendly gift ideas. If you are looking for a greener approach to presents this year, check out these five awesome products and services:

1. Wearth London – Hannah, Senior Account Manager

A great sustainable company offering perfect gifts, stocking fillers and ‘eco-inspo’ cleantech top tips is Wearth London.

There is something for everyone at Wearth London. See what fantastic sustainable products it has to offer by taking a look at its online store.

2. Smol – Andrea, Managing Director

Boasting the title of ‘the most effective concentrated laundry capsule in the world’ is not to be sniffed at. This amazing product is delivered straight to your door and is nearly 50% cheaper than ‘normal’ brands.

A few members of the Resonates team have been using Smol for quite some time now as it offers plastic free and recyclable packaging and gets the job done well

Smol products range from laundry to dishwasher, and everything in between. There is a sustainable product to suit varying needs. Why not take advantage of Smol’s free trial?

3. Zed Bees recommended by Karen, Senior Technical PR

Did you know, in the UK alone we throw away approximately 264 million plastic toothbrushes every year. Zed Bees is a subscription service which supplies all of your bathroom essentials which are eco-friendly, plastic free, vegan, cruelty free and recyclable (to name but a few).

Customise your box with any combination of Zed Bees’s organic (and delicious) toiletries or select from any of its existing boxes. Let’s be honest, every Christmas there is that one person that is difficult to buy for. Zed

Bees could be the perfect solution – saving you hours of gift searching! Take a look.

4. ODDBOX – Chris L, Technical Content Specialist

Spending more time at home has been a reality for many of us this year. It has given us opportunities to spend time with family, take up new hobbies, or prepare and create home cooked meals. If like the team at Resonates you and your friends and family too love to cook, you might like to try ODDBOX.

This fantastic company delivers the best fresh fruit and veg straight to your doorstep. The quality is restaurant grade, but large suppliers would normally throw this produce away due to them being ‘too odd’ or ‘too small’.

If food waste was a country, it would be the third biggest emitter of greenhouse emissions. That is why we strongly support ODDBOX and what they do. A low waste and healthy gift to prepare for the New Year health kick! Explore farm to table fresh food.

5. Who Gives A Crap – Chris D, Director

Environmental activist Wendell Berry once said, ‘’The Earth is what we all have in common’’ and we totally agree, we are all in the same boat and it’s important to protect our lovely planet. However, we would also argue that we have something else in common – everybody poops!

For a bit of background, Who Gives A Crap is a toilet paper manufacturer and distributor and it all started when Co-Founder Simon, Jehen and Danny learnt that 40% of the global population do not have access to a toilet which resulted in poor sanitary and disease. A go-fund-me page, 50 hours and $50,000 later, it had raised enough money to start this marvellous cause.

Today, 50% of its profits are pumped directly into the creation of new toilets in developing countries, improving sanitation – which we think is awesome!
Who Gives A Crap is making the world a better place. Its packaging is 100% plastic free, ink free and fully recyclable. If you ‘give a crap’ about the world and people too, take a look at this fantastic product.

So, that’s our top eco-friendly gift ideas all of which can be sent straight to your loved one’s house making them the perfect CV-19 safe gifts that definitely won’t end in tiers! Why not take a look at all of these amazing products and treat your family and friends, and save the planet a little bit too.
