Whether you’re a sustainability pro or just starting out, you’ve come to the right place for sustainable gift ideas. You can impress your gift recipients while feeling good that you’re reducing waste, as well as promoting pollinator awareness, fair trade, and organic farming practices. It’s a win-win for your gift-giving abilities and for the planet!
At bumbleBdesign, we’re happy to offer a number of locally-sourced, eco-friendly gifts by featuring containers that are biodegradable or use recycled contents, and products that are all-natural, organic, or locally-sourced. In our efforts to be more environmentally-friendly, we do our best to reuse clean packaging materials in gift shipments or use biodegradable packing peanuts. We also print our shipping labels on recycled paper.
With that in mind, let’s dive into 5 sustainable gift ideas perfect for friends, family, and clients alike:
