Our Zero Waste + Eco-Friendly Gift Guide

'Tis the season of gift-giving. We have curated a selection of zero waste, reusable and sustainable gift ideas for everyone on your list. When shopping, consider the 3 R's: REDUCE, REUSE and RECYCLE. Ask yourself: Do they need it? Will this gift help reduce waste? Can it be reused or repurposed? Is it recyclable? 


"We don't need a handful of people doing zero wasteperfectly, we need millions of people doing it imperfectly."
                              - Anne Marie Bonneau

 

Here are our favourite zero waste gift ideas:

BEESWAX CANDLES: Nothing says cozy like candlelight. Make your home cozy this holiday season with locally-made, package-free beeswax candles.  These scent-free (other than the scent of beeswax) pinecone or ornament shaped candles (pictured above) support sustainable beekeeping.
