How do I choose the right eco-friendly gifts for her?
The best eco-friendly gifts for women are items that are useful, stylish, or funny but for which the production or creation process requires a smaller ecological footprint.
Get eco-friendly gifts right, and you will score bonus points. This is because, besides finding an item that she likes or finds useful, you show her you are involved in her life and aware of her environmental beliefs. She will perhaps appreciate this fact even more than the gift itself.
Eco-Friendly Gifts vs. Organic Gifts vs. Ethically Sourced Gifts?
The words “eco-friendly”, “organic”, and “ethically sourced” often get mixed up. Although all three of them have ‘doing the right thing’ and ‘improving the world we live in’ in common, each has its own focus.
This is important as you want to give her the gift that relates to the area where she has strong beliefs, and you don’t want to mix them up.
- Eco-friendly gifts are those gifts that have a smaller negative impact on the environment. This is because the item is made from renewable or recycled materials, and sometimes even the different steps in the production process and transport are optimized.
- Organic gifts are gifts that are produced or involve production without the use of chemical fertilizers, pesticides, or other artificial chemicals. Examples are organic beauty products.
- Ethically sourced gifts are gifts that did not require unethical practices to get made. Examples are the use of child labor during a production process or wood that was sourced via illegal logging.
So if you know she cares a lot about ethical sourcing, don’t just give her a bamboo cutting board because bamboo is renewable; also make sure such eco-friendly gifts aren’t made in Southeast Asia by children.
What are the best-recycled gifts for women?
Recycled gifts are items that are made from recycled materials (f.e. wood, metal, plastic) or reuse elements that have outlived their original purpose and are given a new life (f.e. a coffee table made out of an old car engine).
Original ideas for recycled gifts for women are:
- A driftwood wind chimes to brighten up any porch or yard.
- A recycled glass set to celebrate your bonds with family and friends.
- A uniquely designed recycled metal ostrich planter.
