Eco Friendly Gifts Ideas: Green gift ideas for your eco warrior friends and family. The perfect sustainable gifts that you can buy online.
I know that sometimes your eco friendly family member or friend may be a bit confusing to you. 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. I just put together my personal wish list of green gifts and here it is… wink wink hint hint to my family who is wondering what to get me this year!

Green Gifts for Eco Warriors
Looking for a gift for a friend or family member who identifies as an environmentalist, an ecowarrior, or zero waste? Here are some green gift ideas that they won't hate.
Get great tasting water without the waste; by switching to Brita, you can save money and replace 1,800 single-use plastic water bottles a year! Anyone else obsessed? I love a good quality water bottle.
I carry them *everywhere.* I’ve found that I prefer water bottles with a spout because they’re easier to clean and less apt to get mold inside the straw. I don’t love how heavy the stainless steel ones are, but you really can’t beat how cool and fresh they keep the water.
This portable generator has enough power to charge an iphone 12, iPad Mini, 12'' MacBook, Mini car refrigerator, Gopro or other small home appliances. Can meet all your needs in outdoor camping, power outages and more.
This outdoor portable power bank allows you to charge 2 devices simultaneously. Auto-detect your devices' current to pair the optimal output. It's dust, shock and waterproof with a built in LED flashlight.
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.
The idea behind an aquaponics system is that it’s a self sustainable system. It’s supposed to act like the natural environment where everything is in balance. There are lots of options for these and they’re DEFINITELY a realistic project to DIY.
But you can also buy a setup. These setups allow you to keep your fish and also a small garden area over the fish tank… there’s a grow light and a water pump that cycles dirty water into the plants.
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.
This specially designed plant rooting equipment can help your cuttings get stronger roots. The more mature plants can be propagated faster than conventional propagation methods. It allows you to view the results within 6-8 weeks after installation.
