Our Favourite ‘Waste-Less’ Beautiful Christmas Gifts
Sadly, Christmas is one of the most wasteful times of the year. So, if you are looking to gift a little more consciously and less wastefully, this guide is for you! From sustainable fashion to organic beauty, here we have curated some our favourite conscious gifts that are made with minimal waste and impact on the environment.
Kjaer Weis Organic Refillable Makeup
A true pioneer for sustainability in the beauty industry, not only is Kjaer Weis makeup certified natural, organic and cruelty-free, but their packaging is refillable too! Once your compact is empty, simply repurchase the corresponding refillable version of the product and you are good to go! The formulas of Kjaer Weis makeup feature vitamins and oils that work wonders to hydrate and nourish the skin.
Archivist Studio Upcycled Shirts
These beautiful shirts and blouses by Archivist Studio are made from 100% upcycled luxury hotel bed linens that would otherwise have gone to waste. They are made by hand here in Europe, designed in Berlin by a small team who’s passion for using waste has been executed by thinking of how best to use excess fabrics and supporting local manufacturers with fair wages to make beautiful items. They also come with a bit of excess fabric to allow you to repair them if any rips or tears may happen, so this really is a shirt for life!
Tautanz Natural Soap Bars
Switching from plastic packaged soaps and shower gels to plastic-free soap bars is one of the most effective ways you can reduce your household waste. Tautanz believe that conscious luxury means choosing quality over quantity, reconnecting with nature, feeling good in your own skin, and enjoying the little rituals.This line of natural soaps are handmade by experienced by craftsmen in Portugal and packaged without any plastic.
Juni Organic Plastic-Free Lipsticks
“I refuse to compromise when it comes to sustainability and was adamant that Juni must be 100% plastic free, so we had to innovate our own packaging.” says Juni Founder Madeleine White. Not only are these beautiful lipsticks packaged completely sustainably, Juni lipsticks are formulated with argan oil, which is wonderful for hydrating and protecting the lips – perfect for cold winter days! They are cruelty-free and vegan too!
Haeckels Natural Skincare & Lifestyle
A pioneer in the industry for sustainable innovation, natural skincare, bodycare and fragrance line Haeckels have developed biocontributing packaging which means not only does their packaging not harm the planet, but it contributes to our planet’s biosphere. Their range of products are sourced and created on the coast line of England’s Margate with seaweed as the hero ingredient. From natural hand wash and shampoos to incense and candles, we are sure you will find a beautiful gift from Haeckels for everyone!
Glasshouse Salon Wooden Hair Brushes
Unlike most conventional hair brushes which are made partly, if not completely, from plastic material, Glasshouse Salon offer a sustainable alternative. These artisanal brushes promise to be gentler on tangles than most nylon spiked paddles, thanks to their wooden pins designed to glide from root to tip, leaving no static frizz or flyaways in their tracks. Glasshouse take pride in their environmental commitment; holding an FSC certification that ensures conservation of the world’s forests is always prioritised in their practices.
S'well Drinks Bottles
This one’s for the person in your life who is still not refilling! Available in a range of beautiful colours and designs, S’well Bottles make the perfect practical gift that will encourage your loved one to switch to more planet-friendly habits. These bottles will keep cold drinks cool for 24 hours and hot for 12, so they are great for coffee and juice drinkers too!
