So, this holiday season, choose to invest in quality eco gifts and brands that are truly making a difference. And because you are here, I know you care. You are an eco-warrior, you see how your conscious lifestyle is slowly making a difference. As a result, you inspiring people around you.
In order to give meaningful gifts, here are the top luxury ideas to eco-treat your loved ones and make this eco holiday a caring and sustainable one.
Eco Gifts For The Little Ones
Unreal Fur is an Australian PETA approved brand that has been a real leather alternative since 2011. Consequently, they only use materials like hemp and PET.
However, they are aware of their limitations. That’s why they keep working on even better ones and try their best to recycle all scraps. With these off-cuts, they create products like their accessories line and ‘Mini Me’ – the version of their women’s collection for kids.
For Her, She Deserves The Best
Laura von Behr is the ultimate sustainable fashion experience you can give your friend as an eco gift this year. An hour and a half appointment, in east London, exclusively for her, her size and her needs. Thanks to the refocus on quality, the second hand and vintage markets are on the rise.
What’s more, experiences are proved to bring more happiness, better memories, and less clutter. With Laura, you get all those benefits in one go! Too good to be true? Well, go ahead and book a FREE appointment.
