If you want to give gifts to the men in your life this Christmas that show you care about them and the environment, then look no further! I’ve put together a list of 6 eco-minded gifts to choose from.
Does he love whisky? Make it a sustainable bottle! There are a few to choose from. If you want organic whisky there is the Benromach Organic Single Malt Whisky 70 cl or Highgrove Gardens Organic Whisky. There are also some mainstream eco-friendly scottish whiskies like Glenfiddich which are using up waste products from the whisky making process to provide energy to make the whisky!
Is he a vegan? This Boshiho® Mens Cork Wallet Bifold Slim Vegan Wallet Purse is made from cork leather, which is such a great material and a brilliant alternative to plastic for vegans! I was given a cork leather purse a few years ago that I love. It has worn really well, feels soft to the touch and is a great use for cork. As long as the cork bark is stripped off the tree properly it will grow back, so not only is it vegan, it is also a sustainable* and renewable option!
My husband didn’t see the point of a reusable coffee cup until I bought him one a few years ago and now he finds it very useful for long journeys with early starts. Most single use coffee cups are not fully recyclable and as I’m sure you all know even if they were that isn’t the answer to all our problems. Cut the problem at the source by getting him a stylish and eco-friendly reusable coffee cup like this bamboo coffee cup from Ecoffee. If he regularly buys a coffee on his way to work it will save him money too!

* Please note that I don’t have any knowledge of the source of the cork in the cork leather wallet shown and can’t verify whether a sustainable source of cork was used in it’s making or not.
