Eco-Friendly Stocking Fillers

by Fabian Jackson

We’ve put together some of our favourite eco-friendly gift ideas, zero waste-stocking fillers and plastic-free presents that all your recipients will love.   

Plastic-free stocking fillers for kids

Christmas is a very special time for so many of us – especially if there are little ones around. But why forget our sustainability goals in all the excitement? Here are some great plastic-free ideas that kids will love to find in their Christmas stockings:

  • We love these beautifully crated plastic-free toys from Enviriotoy. They’ve got a great range of engaging toys – from safe and durable toys suitable for newborns right up to puzzles and logic games for older children.
  • Sweeties and chocolate – let your inner-child loose in an old-fashioned sweet shop where you can point at a jar and pay per weight. Generally, they’ll come in paper bags, but if they don’t, why not take your own containers? 
  • Eco-friendly crafts – we love these recycled notebooks from the Eden Project.

Zero-waste stocking fillers for all the family

Here are a few simple zero-waste gift ideas, that are bound to go down a treat: 

  • It can be hard to keep on top of everyone’s tastes, especially when it comes to presents – how about giving a digital gift card to someone’s favourite shop? 
  • Maybe this is the year you get into soap making to keep you closest ones smelling amazing – like this eco-friendly cold-process recipe from Lovely Greens.
  • How about getting creative and hand-making personalised experience vouchers for all of your family – these could be anything from a home-cooked meal, to helping someone reorganise their kitchen cupboards!

Socks

It seems like everybody unanimously decided to give socks as gifts for Christmas, and then complain about receiving them themselves. We think they’re great, and regardless of the jokes, everyone does too… right?! So how about giving socks that make a difference? 

Plastic-free toiletries  

We love this entire oral care kit from Wearth London – it comes with biodegradable toothbrushes, floss, toothpaste tablets, interdental floss brushes and a copper tongue cleaner.
