Eco friendly gifts add back meaning to what has become a traditional plastic splurge. Christmas is supposed to be the happiest time of the year but for our little blue planet it can be the most destructive. No one wants to receive another addition to the plastic problem that is harming us all.

Remember that Christmas is not all about giving gifts and no one asks for tat! Choose well to show those who mean the most that you care about them and the impact on our world.

There is sure to be something here that they will love and something to give them a surprise too 🙂
