In our home, we have been working hard to reduce our waste and plastic usage, but it didn’t happen overnight.

Amazing Eco-Friendly Gifts
Over the past year, we have been learning more and more about zero-waste and sustainable living. I've gradually made small changes in our home that have been amazing.
I wanted to share some of the simple, affordable products that we've been trying as well as some amazing eco-friendly gift ideas! Perfect for any birthday or stocking stuffer.
I'm going to start here because these silicone bags were one of the first products that made me want to reduce all of the plastic in our home. These are dishwasher safe, freezer safe, and have completely replaced my ziploc bags!
These are some of my kitchen essentials. I've gifted them to a few people, and everyone who has learned about them has been so excited to use them! They replace a lot of the plastic baggies and cellophane that I used to use to wrap foods in the fridge. A great reusable alternative!
A stainless steel refillable water bottle is just practical for anyone! Reduce the need for bottled water by bringing your own water bottle with you everywhere. Plus, these guys come in great colours and patterns to suit anyone!
I'm not sure if this is for the gift giver or the gift receiver, but I can tell you that I'd be happy to receive this! Gift wrap is so wasteful, and always thrown away. Kraft paper is 100% recyclable and biodegradable!
Another thing we've done lately is packed our cupboards full of reusable containers to help eliminate those baggies. These containers are plastic free, have sustainable bamboo lids, and are stylish alternatives to the traditional plastic lunch ones.
These containers are made from plastic, but if you're like me, you'll never EVER get rid of them. These are my absolute favourite pantry organizing containers. They have the easy pop tops, they stack beautifully, and the store any type of pantry food so that you can buy bulk and reduce the plastic packaging.
If you are working away from home, taking lunches with you, or eating on the road often, avoid the pastic cutlery and opt for one of these sleek bamboo sets. I love the idea of popping this in a stocking for someone this Christmas!
This is another great stocking stuffer! More and more restaurants are going greener and eliminating straws, but I'm a star lover! These stainless steel washable straws are perfect for keeping in your purse in case the need for a straw arises!
I just got my first set of these reusable makeup and wash wash pads and I was so excited! Natural bamboo rounds that can be thrown in the wash are a great alternative to the throw away version! This is a perfect gift for a teenager that cares about the environment!
