Trying to live a low waste lifestyle can be quite the challenge when it comes to days like Valentine’s Day… From the single use cards to the plastic-wrapped gifts that fill supermarket shelves this time of year, shopping for that eco conscious special someone can be nothing less than a nightmare! But the good news is that there are plenty of eco friendly alternatives out there and we’ve got a great list of our favourite eco friendly gift ideas down below!
Here's our guide for having a more eco friendly, zero waste Valentine's Day!
Is there any better gift than something hand made with love and care? Whether it’s an up-cycled card, a DIY bath bomb or a personalised piece wall art, you can’t really go wrong!
You’d be surprised what you might find in charity shops! But what about vintage clothing shops, Facebook market place or even Ebay as well? There should be absolutely no shame in shopping second hand!
Cruelty Free Jewellery?
That’s right - diamonds, gold and jewellery can have a serious ecological impact. Again, see what you can get second hand or if you can get a stunning vintage piece. Another option is jewellery made from recycled materials - just like a bracelet that helps to clear land of landmines left from The Vietnam War!
