Ideas for more meaningful and environmentally friendly presents or Christmas stocking fillers that also help do some good in the world!
Everything is different this Christmas, so it's up to all of us to make sure it's still a special one! Check in with your friends and family, support each other, and take joy in the wonderful things that still happen every day, no matter how small or simple they may be.
With that in mind, here are a few small gift and stocking-filler ideas, that as well as spreading Christmas cheer, will also help do a little good in the world.
5 Ideas for Environmentally Friendly Gifts, Christmas Presents and Stocking Fillers
Since we first started BAMWOO, our mission was not just to reduce needless single use plastic, but also to plant one tree for every item we sell, including these stocking filler ideas:
1. Children's bamboo toothbrushes, specially designed to kind to small mouths
These gentle child-friendly bamboo toothbrushes make ideal gifts for eco-conscious friends and family.
The special softer bristles ensure clean teeth and optimal hygiene without hurting sensitive gums, while 4 different colour options help tell who's brush is who's in shared bathrooms.
2. Ceramic toothbrush holders, to keep your bamboo toothbrush clean and dry
These high quality ceramic bamboo toothbrush holders help keep your bamboo toothbrush in top condition and your bathroom tidy.
The minimalistic ring design holds the toothbrush upright, so it can air dry and drain quicker and more efficiently than in a typical cup. Choose from white, blue, green and pink.
3. Bamboo interdental brushes, for more environmentally friendly oral hygiene
Made from biodegradable and sustainable bamboo plus BPA-free bristles, these bamboo interdental brushes come in a pack of 8 and are designed to be a more eco-friendly way to clean between your teeth.
The bamboo interdental brushes are available in 5 different sizes to gently slide between teeth to safely capture and clean out anything caught in the gaps or below the gum line. We plant 1 tree for every pack sold.
4. 'Do You Like Trees' card by Little Difference - two trees planted per card!
Our gorgeous gift cards are made out of recycled FSC-certified materials, and designed by hand in the UK by the talented folks at Little Difference.
Even better, Little Difference plant one tree for each card they make for us, and we plant another for each card you buy from us, so each card = two trees planted!
5. Jungle sunglasses created with DELAYON Eyewear, to protect your eyes and the planet
These sustainable sunglasses feature stylish bamboo frames and sophisticated polarised lenses, created in partnership with our fellow Eden Reforestation family members DELAYON eyewear.
The included lightweight but tough bamboo travel case is ready for the roughest of adventures, and inline with both BAMWOO's and DELAYON's reforestation missions, we plant a tree for every pair of sunglasses sold.
We offer an option of postage via Royal Mail's Special Guaranteed Christmas Delivery for guaranteed delivery by 24th December. The cut-off date for this service is 23rd December.
With your help, we've planted 46,930 new trees, providing a total of 469 days of paid planting employment. We hope to reach our goal of 50,000 trees planted by the end of 2020.
