Giving Valentine’s Day gifts is about celebrating love. That could be love for a partner, a friend, a family member or yourself.
Here at Bluehouse we encourage you to add one more element to that love equation: the planet.
So this Valentine’s is a wonderful time to let significant people know you care about them, and doing so sustainably, ethically, and with love for the Earth.
Here are some Valentine’s Day gifts that will let you accomplish that.
Valentine’s Day Gifts: 6 sustainable options
- Plastic-Free Bathroom Gift Box. Finding the right sustainable products to make the eco-friendly lifestyle switch can be exhausting. This plastic-free, zero-waste gift box can ease the way into a zero-waste journey for yourself and your loved ones.
Cool facts: The lavender shampoo and conditioner bars have natural ingredients that last up to 3 times more than a plastic bottle! And the bamboo toothbrush is compostable in as little as four months in the soil!
The box comes with a small tag for the name and/or a little message to your recipient. (Let us know if you want us to write a message for you on the tag!).
The shirts are fairly produced in Bangladesh and are made with water-based & biodegradable ink. They’re also Fair Wear Foundations & GOTS certificated, and PETA-Approved Vegan.
You can choose between two different soap designs. This can be a good place to start your sustainable lifestyle journey or inspire others to do so!
These products are plastic-free and handmade, and the soaps are super safe for people with sensitive skin or prone to allergies. Besides, they are made via a cold process, meaning stronger bubbles, creamier lather, and longer lasting time!Plus, they’re also an excellent way to create a zero waste bathroom and they’re essential for zero waste travel.
Made with eco-friendly, vegan and biodegradable soy wax, with a wooden wick. All the packaging is plastic free and the products are hand poured in The Netherlands. The reed diffuser base is non-toxic, made from renewable source and fully compliant with CARB Regulations (USA).
Pro tip: natural materials means that after a candle is completely burned, the residual wax can be easily removed with hot water and a little washing-up liquid. Therefore, each container can be reused.
(The best part: you’re saving more than 22% by buying this bundle instead of buying the products separately!)
Most yoga mats currently on the market are made from PVC (Polyvinyl Chloride), which is a non recyclable substance. This one, on the other hand, is made from TPE (thermoplastic elastomer) foam, a recyclable synthetic rubber that requires less energy to manufacture.
The yoga Strap is made of recyclable polyester and the towel from 100% organic cotton.
These bags from Ecowings are made from tires: truck inner tubes from the waste streams of India are collected and then upcycled into high-quality products. They are handmade and 100% safe to use by European guidelines.
Plus, they provide employment in the Indore region to people of all classes for which they receieve fair compensation.
So, by choosing these Valentine’s Day Gifts, you’ll not only demonstrate love to the receiver, you’ll also be contributing to a greener lifestyle, promoting upcycling and recycling, supporting communities, and protecting nature, animals and people!
Valentine’s Day Gifts: Eco-friendly letters & cards
Plastic gift cards pollute the environment by not only clogging water sourcers but also increasing emission of greenhouse gases when they are burnt.
Instead, you can choose our Bluehouse digital gift cards!
They are credit coupons that are sent to the recipient’s email and can be redeemed in any of the products/stores listed within Bluehouse World.
You can also gift these beautiful cards by Tiesjurt, handmade in Belgium and made with quality cotton paper 470gr:
