If you know someone who’s trying to be more sustainable, or maybe that’s you, I’ve compiled a gift guide to help you choose the right product!

Whether it’s make up or essentials, there’s ways to be sustainable while using the products you love.
Reusable Make Up Pads
Make up wipes cost a fortune but also create a lot of rubbish. What if you can still remove make up while being more sustainable? I recently purchased these make up wipes from Amazon which allow you to wipe make up off (you can also buy make up remover) without discarding the pads. All you need to do is pop them in the wash bag in with your clothes and voila! You can purchase a pack of 16 pads here.
We all tend to use razors at some point, but if you’re like me you’ll buy a pack of three plastic lady shavers and bin them after a few months. This is a much better option for the environment – and your skin. You can buy the bamboo safety razor here.
Maybe not a gift you would usually give your loved one but it is a gift to the environment to battle against the amount of plastic toothbrushes we use each year. In the US alone, one billion toothbrushes are thrown away each year. You may only see it as one toothbrush but it all adds up. There are plenty of places to buy your bamboo toothbrush but I bought mine on Amazon.
If your loved one is an artist, these recycled newspaper pencils are the perfect quirky gift. On Etsy they come in a pack of five and they’re made from 100% recycled paper.
Even as an adult I still love using straws in my drinks. But to be more eco-friendly I decided to buy some long lasting ones from TK Maxx. You can obviously find these in lots of health food stores, supermarkets but if you’re like me and barely go out, I recommend getting these metal straws.
Wax wraps are a great and Eco-friendly way of storing food without using nasty plastic Tupperware. They can store your lunch, fruit or even be wrapped around jam jars. I got my own from V-Eco food wraps where you can get some beautiful patterned wraps.
If your partner has to commute to work each day, why not buy them one of these colourful flasks? They’re perfect to keep drinks hot for twelve hours or cold drinks cold for twenty-four!
Collapsible Travel Mug
This has been n my to-buy list for a while. I think they’re such a clever idea! You can just collapse the mug into your bag when you’re not using it and it pops back open when you want to fill it up. You can find these at lots of supermarkets now but if you’re looking to buy one online you can grab yourself one of these.
I hope these have given you some good ideas on what to get your partner or friend or family member to help them become more Eco-friendly.
