Our 8 Ethical Christmas Gifts: Hannah’s Edit

1. For the coffee lover: An Ecoffee Cup

Did you know that 2017 marked the 30th anniversary of the paper coffee cup? In the last 3 decades, around 2 trillion of them have ended up in landfill. Because of their plastic content, less than 1% of them are recycled. Awful isn’t it?

Ecoffee Cup is a new generation of reusable coffee cup. Sustainably crafted from the world’s fastest growing, most sustainable crop – bamboo fibre, Ecoffee Cup is BPA and phthalate free. In a wide range of fun and contemporary prints and colours, you can pick the Ecoffee Cup to match your look. Check it out here.

For nature lovers, design lovers and gardeners alike, the Bee Brick is a gift that keeps on giving. Solitary bees are facing massive decline, in part due to habitat loss. This stylish concrete planter combines a safe nesting site for solitary bees, with a space for pollinator planting. This means that their food is never too far from home.

Pure Tea are a UK based brand that specialise in bringing you the finest 100% organic teas. They were founded upon the belief that top-quality organic tea shouldn’t cost the earth. Through sustainable land use and organic cultivation, their tea producers embody the concept of man and nature living in harmony with each other. Their suppliers obtain a fair price for their tea by selling directly to them. This means higher wages for their workers, and the chance to reinvest profits in their plantations. Explore their delicious range of organic tea here.
