Christmas can be a wasteful season but working towards a zero-waste lifestyle does not have to mean that Christmas is cancelled. Gift giving can be eco-friendly, and most importantly this close to Christmas, easy! Use our Sustainable Gift Guide to shop planet-friendly gifts – we like to think they are the gifts that keep giving – once to the receiver and ongoingly for the planet – reducing the pull on Mother Nature’s resources and hopefully reducing pollution.
So much rubbish goes into getting lunch everyday, help your friends and family reduce the daily waste with the Content Zero Wasted Kit. It will also support them with their New Year’s Resolutions to get healthy and start saving money. The kit includes a Stelton Reusable Cups, beeswax reusable wrap, organic bamboo utensils, a BPA-free metal lunch box, a glass straw, stainless steel straw and handy straw cleaner.
We all need to drink more water but not by increasing our use of BPA via single-use plastic bottles. Swell offers a selection of contemporary drink bottles that will suit any design preference. As generous as they are stylish, Swell donate to UNICEF, helping to provide clean water to vulnerable children worldwide If Scandi design is more their aesthetic, Stelton Reusable Cups will be a surefire hit. They come in two sizes – the small fits the perfect Flat White (use the line on the inside as the fill guide) while the large is great for all drinks.
No Sustainable Gift Guide from Content would be complete without make-up. How would you like to never throw away another empty makeup container again? Both Alima Pure (compacts) and Kjaer Weis make this possible by ensuring their packaging reduces waste with a clever refillable system. Kjaer Weis makeup comes in beautiful, quality metal containers that can be refilled again and again and again, while the Alima Pure makes sure their Pressed powder compacts and concealers can be refilled. Skip the wrapping paper and pack the goodies in a Paperthinks recycled leather cosmetics bag, instead.
The Nature of Beauty by Content founder, Imelda Burke, has fifteen beauty recipes that can be whipped up and gifted to your loved ones in a upcycled jam jar. Time to stock up on organic honey and organic coconut oil!
Not all presents on our Sustainable Gift Guide need wrapping and handing over. Treat your favourite person to a visit to our store and surprise them with a facial, body treatment or nutrition consultation. Grow wellness, not landfill.
