Holiday season is finally here, and the shopping craziness has begun. No matter how much I love this time of the year, whenever I think about the gifts I need to choose for my friends and family, I get a mild headache. Even though I enjoy shopping for others more than for myself, sometimes I think I will not be original but end up buying the same gift I had already bought before. Furthermore, I would like to be eco-friendly just as many of you would too. Well, for all of those eco-friendly people out there, I have found some great suggestions we could all consider.
Fig and Yarrow Bath and Body Kit
A little indulgence is always desirable. This body kit will offer your friend a true relaxation, because only soothing, safe, and luxurious products are involved in this set. Products from the Fig and Yarrow line are the part of a small-batch, artisanal apothecary that uses local ingredients in order to create organic, handmade and cruelty-free products. All the oils, soaps, scrubs and every other Fig and Yarrow product is preservative, and more importantly paraben and toxin free.
Sweater from an Eco-Friendly Designer
Certain designers are trying to take care of the environment by using recycled, eco-conscious and vintage garments to create their fabulous wardrobe. Furthermore, some labels choose to make their clothes in-house in the label’s environmentally friendly sewing factory. Moreover, every piece of clothing you order will be sent in 100% recycled packaging. This sweater will be the perfect gift for your mom, best friend, or your siblings. It will keep them warm through an entire winter.
Search for designers that make hand-dyed totes, clutches and cross body sacs, for a completely unexpected and amazing holiday gift. These manufacturers use vegetable-tanned leather to create their pieces. Furthermore, they are dyed with natural and organic dyes, which make every bag unlike any other you have ever seen.
Just because the winter is here, that does not mean a little bronze tan is not in order. A bronzer that gives the perfect shine to the face is formulated with raw, organic, and non-toxic ingredients. There are lines of products known for using completely harmless chemicals, they contain no synthetic preservatives and are free of GMOs. Moreover, they are soy and gluten free. You will be even more satisfied when you see that the recyclable glass with airtight aluminum lids is used for packaging.
Make-up Brush Set
Make-up only looks that flawless because girls use the appropriate tools to apply it. The high quality brushes are essential for properly contouring your face. The best 100 percent pure high quality brushes are the perfect holiday gift for your friend or a sister. Bristles are naturally antimicrobial and synthetic. Brushes are incredibly easy to wash and keep clean. They come in a cute stylish clutch which is printed with soy and veggie inks, on cotton. Perfectly eco-friendly.
You can never have enough cosmetic products, creams, lotions, and masks. Certain cosmetic companies have the environment in mind as well, when they create their products. They choose to exclude the icky chemicals and opt for only organic, unrefined plant oils and butters. Furthermore, the main parts of the mask texture become organic botanicals, cold-pressed and steam-distilled essential oils. The companies take extra care of the environment by using recycled paper or glass containers, for packaging. This way the use of plastics is limited the most.
As you can see, there are more eco-friendly products out there than we think. Fortunately, people are starting to pay a little more attention to our planet. However, do not wait for the last minute to go shopping, but do it every day for a little while. Start now and you should be done way before Christmas. Happy hunting.
