We stan people who discipline themselves to help Mother Earth. It takes a whole lot of work and determination to practice zero-waste and eco-friendly lifestyle—especially in a world full of plastics (pun intended), after all.

If you would like to encourage someone to be eco-conscious, let them know through presents. We're here to help you find the perfect gifts!

Sibol Pens

These wooden pencils have capsules with seeds in them. So after the pencil's been all used up, you can plant the capsule in a potting mix and voila, you have your very own plant!

Shampoo bars

Since liquid shampoo is made up of chemicals and its bottles are made up of plastic, shampoo bars can be used as a more environment-friendly alternative. They are not placed in plastic containers and are 100% organic. They also last 2-3 times longer than the usual shampoo and can also be used as body soap. It can be pretty handy when traveling.

Bamboo Tumblers

Bamboo is fast-growing and versatile natural resource and it is now being used as a material for sustainable products, even tumblers. If your friend solemnly swore off plastic products, you may consider a pretty bamboo tumbler or coffee cup.

Organizer

If you’re friend or loved one is the on-the-go type, then this organizer is perfect for him/her. The leather used in making this organizer is definitely plant-based (water hyacinth to be exact) so we can definitely say that no animals were harmed in making this product.
