This holiday season, consider giving gifts that not only your friends and family will love but will also help keep our planet healthy. From sustainably sourced ingredients to products that use recycled ocean plastic, from candles to tea to comforters, there's something on our list for everyone.

Art of Tea Matcha Pacific Coast Mint Eco Pyramid Teabags
Earlier this year, we launched a refreshing new bundle in partnership with our friends at Art of Tea: Boxed Matcha. If you're shopping for a tea drinker, look no further. One of our favorites is their Pacific Coast Mint, which is a blend of organic spearmint and peppermint sourced from Oregon and California. They're packaged in Art of Tea's signature pyramid sachets, which are derived from renewable resources (like corn) and are ultrasonically sealed instead of using glue.

Buffy Cloud Comforter
Buff comforters are all the rage this year. Yes, they're super cozy, but they are also better for the planet than traditional down comforters. The fabric is made from cooling eucalyptus (which uses 10 times less water than cotton) and instead of goose down, their fill is made with 50 recycled plastic water bottles. Plus, the only use plant-based materials in our dyes (think turmeric and pomegranate) instead of synthetic dyes. These are better for the planet and your bed.

Rothy's Merino Collection
We included Rothy's in our roundup last year, but we love them so much we had to feature them again. They recently released a new collection made from humanely and sustainably sourced merino wool that's spun with their signature thread that's made from repurposed plastic water bottles. And the cozy wool is excellent for keeping you warm in the colder months.

Park's Project's Take Me To The Parks Winter Woods Candle 
One of our team's passions is our National Forests and National Parks, these protected areas are so crucial to our planet, and help educate and inform people about the importance of conservation, sustainability and the environment. That's why we plant trees in partnership with the National Forest Foundation and participate in beach and forest cleanups regularly. To share your (and our) love of our National Parks, consider supporting an organization like The Park's Project this holiday season. Each product sold supports their work with more than 50 non-profit organizations to protect parks and public lands. We love their Take Me To The Parks candle -- the perfect gift for your outdoor enthusiast friends.

4Ocean x FinalStraw Collapsible Travel Straw 2.0
If you haven't heard of the incredible work that 4Ocean does to clean our beaches and oceans, then read up on it here. Since 2017, they've cleaned up 7.1+ million pounds of ocean plastic and marine debris - and they're just getting started. Did you know that Americans use an average of 500 million straws daily - and they can't be recycled, so they end up in landfills and our oceans. Instead, opt for a reusable straw that can prevent approximately 547 plastic straws from polluting our oceans, and every straw purchased funds the removal of one pound of trash from our oceans and coastlines.

Blue Planet Eco Eyewear Sunglasses
Your friends and family will love to receive a pair of sunglasses from Eco Eyewear. Their glasses and sunglasses are made with reclaimed plastics and metals or use natural materials like bamboo or wood. Plus, for each pair sold, the company donates a pair of corrective glasses to someone in need.

Boxed Water 250ML
And of course, we had to include ourselves! Our products make great gifts and stocking stuffers as they're not only sustainable but also functional. We love our smallest size, Boxed Water 250ML, just over eight ounces of 100% purified water that's perfect for lunches, parties, weddings, and more -- and are a sustainable replacement for plastic water bottles. Plus, for each product sold, we plant two trees. Get 15% off now through December 12th with any 24 pack purchase!
