Christmas can be an expensive time of year, but it doesn’t have to be. Taking part in a secret Santa is a really affordable way of gift giving. These suggestions would also be great stocking fillers. We have come up with 5 ethical and sustainable options that are all under £10!
Tony’s Chocolonely’s Chocolate bar is not only delicious, but environmentally friendly too. Tony’s Chocolonley’s pride themselves on being slavery/child labour free in their production process. The packaging is FCS-certified paper, which is super sustainable. They have a few flavours that are vegan too, which is what we like to hear!
Georganics are an all natural organic low-waste dental care company. Regular toothpaste in the supermarket is full of chemicals and laden in plastic packaging. Georganics have come up with an organic alternative that works a treat! This is the perfect little gift to start someone on their eco-friendly journey.
Lush are leading the way for high street stores to ditch the plastic and be more ethical. They are a vegetarian, vegan and cruelty free brand that make the most colourful products. You have probably smelt the shop before you see it! This set is £11 (£1 over budget!) but would be a lovely Christmassy gift for any bath lover.
Lucy & Yak, an ethical clothing brand, have been making these sturdy tote bags from offcuts from their dungaree’s! This means that as little as possible goes to waste in the production line. Lucy & Yak are such a brilliant company to support as they are completely transparent, you know exactly where the items are made and who made them!
Huski Home create their products with recycled rice husk. They discovered that the disposal of rice husk is a big air pollutant and that it could be reused to make products. They are a family-run business that create biodegradable products (Non-toxic, BPA and Silicone free!) and put sustainability on the top of their priority list.
