I know that sometimes your eco friendly family member or friend may be a bit confusing to you. What the h-e-double-hockey-sticks are they doing?! What can you buy them for a gift that they’ll actually use? Why are they giving you crazy eyes for making them a disposable diaper cake for their baby shower?
I admit, I’m that friend/family member. My family came to town in October and I was going behind them, picking recyclables, reusables, and compostables out of the garbage can and they’re staring at me in horror.
Needless to say, I was considering what type of gift guides I wanted to put together this year for my blog and an ecofriendly guide was my FAVORITE idea. Because… yo’… this is essentially my wishlist.
Now, feel free to go for the gold and setup a huge one in the backyard greenhouse with tilapia, chickens, goats, and a whole ecosystem like something from a scifi movie (my dream setup)… but for those with limited funds, these indoor setups are pretty neat.
4. Wool Dryer Balls: These are awesome for getting your clothes dry WITHOUT spending money on dryer sheets.
5. A Good Quality Clothesline and Clothespins: Starting to see a trend? Old fashioned is in- except we’ve put a twist on old fashioned to make it better than ever. But drying clothes on the line is better for your clothes and for the environment. Also, if you know someone who is planning to travel, a travel sized clothesline is a great idea for them to dry bathing suits on vacation.
7. Glass Storage Containers: These are fantastic and great for replacing plastic containers.
8. The Complete Guide to Reusable Cloth Products: Okay, shameless plug for my own book here! But it’s really a great all around book that talks about cloth products.
10. Rechargeable Batteries: These would make great stocking stuffers!
16. Reusable Christmas Bags: Reusable gift bags are AWESOME. They are easy to fold up and store when not in use, they are easy to “wrap” gifts with, and they make cleanup a breeze after the holidays. I made all of my DIY reusable gift bags, but I may pick a couple up to use for Santa gifts this year. You can use your Silhouette or Cricut to add your child’s name to them.
