REV’s 2023 Father’s Day Sustainable Gift Guide
For US Father’s Day we wanted to share some of our favourite sustainable gifts for the different dads in your life.
Thank you so much to our friends at Terra Kaffe, Aizome and The Lost Explorer Mezcal for sponsoring this editorial!
Terra Kaffe’s Super Automatic Espresso Machine, TK-01
Practical and chic, the TK-01 is perfect for the dad in your life who loves his daily coffee routine. Born in Berlin but raised in Brooklyn, Terra Kaffe is a company raising the bar on espresso. They have created an espresso machine that saves you time by automatically grinding your beans and delivering an unrivaled coffee experience. It is so user-friendly with an impressive touchscreen and programmable settings, so you always get your perfect coffee. The water used in the machine goes through a filter to ensure the best taste possible. They’ve thought of everything with their TK-01 machine. You can even seamlessly pick how you like your milk — foamy, silky, or somewhere in between! They offer a way for conscious coffee lovers to maximize coffee flavor and minimize unnecessary waste. The machine itself is beautiful — uniquely designed to fit seamlessly into any kitchen.
AIZOME’s Luxurious Bedding
Give the gift of sleep that is worry free. AIZOME’s bedding is not only one of the most ethical and environmentally conscious bedding out there, but it is also beneficial for your skin and your own sleep. AIZOME is considerate with every decision they make as a business. Inspired by ancient Japanese craftmanship and holistic wisdom, their technology infuses 100% GOTS certified organic cotton that is incredibly soft with the pigment and properties of medicinal plants. The result is fabric unlike anything you’ve experienced before: skin-soothing medicinals create naturally antibacterial, hypoallergenic sheets, free from pesticides, synthetics, allergens and petrochemicals. In addition to using natural indigo and organic cotton, their production requires less water than most conventional textiles. Their wastewater is so clean that it has been used as organic fertilizer and even skincare! Check out their latest wastewater skincare campaign here.
Lost Explorer Mezcal
Created by David Mayer de Rothschild, Lost Explorer Mezcal is one of the most sustainable liquor brands out there. They have the long-term mission of becoming the most sustainable mezcal brand in the world – and they are so transparent about all the incredible things they are doing so far. While setting high standards for sustainability within the industry, they are creating incredible mezcals. So far, they have three award-winning artisanal mezcals with different notes depending on your preference. They make incredible gifts because you can even personalize your bottle by engraving your loved one’s name! Their Tobala Mezcal is our head of partnership’s favourite as it is earthy with hints of tobacco, cocoa, vanilla and leather and it offers a unique balance between wood aromas and umami flavors. Such an amazing gift for the dad in your life that loves a sophisticated (but ethical) drink!
Be Here Farm + Nature
Everyone needs a bit of self-care in their lives and Be Here Farm + Nature makes some of our favourite unisex products. The team behind Be Here Farm are biodynamic farmers and stewards of their land in California. In an industry that rewards monoculture, they are so faithful to biodiversity, growing 375 unique varietals and reserving 90% of their 300 acres to native species and conservation. Their efforts contribute to the virtuous cycle of healthier soil, better crops, and a more vibrant ecology and a stronger community. Their Summer Solstice Serum is a blend of 7 botanicals, which are infused into olive oil. It works for every skin type and will never break you out – wonderful for oily skin, mature skin, and dry skin!
Whether the dad in your life adores fashion or needs help switching to more ethical choices, Finisterre is one of our favourite brands for eco menswear. Founded in 2003, Finisterre has been producing functional and sustainable collections for 20 years. Since then, they have been committed to pushing boundaries within the fashion industry while keeping the environment in mind with every decision. They even have a repair service so you can keep your Finisterre pieces going for as long as you can! They are certified B Corp, are so transparent about their environmental impact, and their garment bags are water soluble, ocean safe, and totally biodegradable.
