20 Zero Waste Gift Ideas

From Closed Loop Sunglasses to Single-Use Shampoo Cubes

— December 7, 2019 — Eco
Waste reduction was a big theme in 2019 and these zero waste gift ideas reflect some of the most innovative brand creations. Over the last year, people have been making efforts to switch to reusable drinking straws, tote bags and refillable bottles in order to reduce the amount of single-use plastic they consume.

To support people who are interested in living more sustainably, brands are responding by launching products that are package-free, available to be purchased in bulk, or made with closed-loop processes and without plastic. It's easier than ever before to swap out commonly used products for more eco-friendly alternatives like silicone food bags, plastic-free all-natural skincare, solid shampoo bars or stylish garments and accessories that support a circular economy.
