Over 100 of the best sustainable and eco friendly gifts for 2020

Looking for the best sustainable and eco friendly gifts for everyone on your list this year? I’ve done alllllll of the leg work for you in scouring tons of eco-friendly and sustainable websites to find the cutest, most green gifts I could find to save you time and energy.


What you will find: over 100 eco-friendly and sustainable gifts from companies that are working to make a difference in the world. Many are small businesses. Many also offer ethical and fair trade items as well.


Additionally, this post has tons of physical items. I know that part of a minimalist and eco-friendly gift giving mindset involves lots of experiences and the gift of time. I also know that with COVID, that may be harder this year. That being said, I have another post with over 100 gift ideas, and most of them include consumables and experiences to check out as well.


Finally, you’ll find that each gift on this list is ECO-FRIENDLY. And, I promise I tried my hardest to represent a wide range of prices so that you can hopefully find something for anyone on your list.

What you won’t find: Anything from Amazon. I know that some people rely on Amazon (especially during COVID times), and that is OK, but I also know that many people are trying to move away from it. This post will introduce you to tons of new websites, many small businesses, to help you make a conscious purchase.



Even better: for any of the items from Earth Hero (like a truly sustainable Amazon – seriously – they’re a certified B Corp and part of 1% for the planet), you can get 10% off with code: LAURAD10 [not case sensitive, can’t be used on sale items, can’t be paired with other coupons, can’t be used on Gift Cards, TerraCycle boxes, Zeal Optics, or Naturepedic products]
