Did you know that every year, billions of plastic cups and bottles end up in landfills, taking centuries to decompose? As businesses increasingly prioritise sustainability, incorporating eco-friendly gift ideas into corporate events is becoming more critical. Choosing eco-friendly gift ideas demonstrates a commitment to environmental responsibility and helps create a positive image for the company.
In this blog post, we share five eco-friendly gift ideas that promote sustainability in the workplace.
Reusable Water Bottles or Coffee Cups: Encourage reusable containers by gifting a reusable water bottle or coffee cup. Not only does this gift idea reduce the use of disposable cups and bottles, but it also saves money in the long run. According to a study by the Earth Policy Institute, producing a litre of bottled water requires three times the amount of water in the bottle itself.
We love Sol Cups, reusable and stylish glass cups. Their hand-blown glass cup is 100% plastic, BPA, BPS, and chemical-free. It is dishwasher and microwave safe and comes with a matching silicone lid and sleeve that is food-grade quality, BPA-free, non-toxic and plastic-free. It does not absorb residual tastes, odours or germs and replaces single-use cups.
Recycled Notebooks: Choose notebooks made from recycled materials. This eco-friendly gift idea is both sustainable and stylish, providing a useful tool for employees while reducing waste. Did you know that producing a ton of paper from recycled paper saves 17 trees, 7,000 gallons of water, and 380 gallons of oil?
We love Notely's Botanical Journal. The Journal is an eco-friendly and visually appealing gift option. It's made from recycled FSC-certified paper with a textured linen cover and features a watercolour art design by Sophie Gilmore. The Journal contains 200 lined pages for daily notes, diary entries, or travel journals. The manufacturing process is sustainable, chlorine-free and acid-free, and printed with soy-based inks. Plus, it is compact and easily portable, making it a great work accessory gift for colleagues.
Reusable Lunch Boxes: Promote sustainable lunch habits by gifting reusable lunch boxes. This practical gift idea reduces waste, encourages the use of eco-friendly containers, and promotes sustainability in the workplace.
We love the Ever Eco Bento Snack Box! It's a plastic-free and durable alternative to single-use plastic containers, perfect for healthy snacking and meal prep on the go. It is made from food-grade stainless steel, has one spacious compartment, and is dishwasher-safe. While not leak-proof, it can be used with Ever Eco's leak-proof mini containers for safely transporting dips, dressings, and condiments. Ever Eco is an Australian company committed to sustainability and inspiring a low-waste lifestyle.
Reusable Produce Bags: Swap single-use plastic bags with reusable produce bag. This gift idea is practical, environmentally friendly, and promotes sustainable shopping habits. Did you know that globally, we use over 5 trillion plastic bags every year?
We love Ever Eco's Reusable Produce Bags. They are a practical, stylish, and eco-friendly alternative to single-use plastic bags. Made from recycled plastic bottles, these transparent mesh bags are perfect for carrying fruits, vegetables, herbs, and bulk goods such as grains and nuts. They are lightweight, strong, and easily stored in a pocket-sized pouch with a carabiner clip. The bags can be washed with produce inside and placed directly in the fridge. Ever Eco is committed to reducing environmental footprints and replacing single-use plastic bags with sustainable alternatives.
Organic Snacks or Sustainable Food Products: Another eco-friendly gift idea for the workplace is to give sustainable food products. By selecting products that are produced using sustainable practices, you promote environmental responsibility and support ethical production methods. You can choose from a variety of options such as organic snacks, fair trade organic chocolate, or sustainably farmed, fair trade organic coffee beans.
We love Mindful Foods Maple Munchies. These snacks are healthy, delicious, and made from organic and activated pecans and walnuts infused with nut butter and cinnamon flavours. They can be sprinkled on yogurt, granola, salads, or ice cream, making them a versatile addition to any snack stash. Plus, they make a perfect gift for health-conscious snack lovers.
