5 Gifts to Get Your Environmentally-Conscious Friend

Ever wonder what to get your friend whose BFF is Mother Nature and loves environmentally-friendly products? Gift giving's hard enough as it is and making sure that the gifts you're buying are environmentally friendly can add an extra layer of difficulty, but don't fret. Here are 5 environmentally friendly gift ideas the next time you're fresh out of ideas: 


1. Pela Phone Case 

These phone cases are eco-friendly and come in a lot of cute colors. The cases are 100% compostable and the packing material is plastic-free. Pela is part of 1% For The Planet, so they donate a portion of sales to non-profit environmental organizations. I have the case in a lavender and my friend has it in rose quartz. We get compliments on them all the time!

Plastics straws are AWFUL for the environment. These would be great for your friend that loves to sip their coffee and teas. Bonus: These straws normally come in a pack with a cleaning brush so you can have some for yourself too.

5. Reusable Bags 

Everyone needs some reusable bags in their life especially if your environmentally-conscious friend doesn't have some already. I keep some in my car at all times and at least one in my bag so I don't forget them. Reusable bags tend to be pretty cheap, so while stocking up for your friend grab some for yourself. You can also mix it up and get reusable produce bags or some snack bags. Another gift idea would be to use a reusable bag as your gift wrap instead of buying a typical gift bag from the store.
