The Best Plastic-Free Gift Guide for 2022

Kick plastic this holiday season with all-natural products from brands we ❤️!

The holiday season is here, a time for sharing time and presents with family and friends. We know that there’s a lot of over-consumerism happening around this time. But by supporting small businesses that are making a difference, you can still have a positive impact, so instead of encouraging you to buy nothing, we want to prompt you to buy mindfully! 

It’s okay to spread cheer and joy with gifts that are good for the planet and are sure to make friends and family happy. Especially when you’re supporting small businesses making a difference in the world.

In this blog, we rounded up all of our favorite brands and collaborators who are creating amazing plastic-free products. And we know anyone would love them. Plus, by gifting eco-conscious products, you can help others get started on their own journey with sustainability. 

These are the best natural, plastic-free products to gift in 2022:

For all you cyclists out there. Ever think about how much you drink out of plastic? Well, that's exactly what led ​​Carina Hamel & Robby Ringe to create Bivo— the world’s first stainless steel water bottle with a flow rate designed for cyclists. 

Full disclosure, the lid is BPA/BPS/BPF free polypropylene with silicone components. Not 100% plastic-free but we’re all about progress over perfection. This is a huge step for sports bottle technology and we’re here to celebrate that!

Who are you calling a towel? From soggy Terrycloth to Microfiber, the king of microplastics, it seems all ‘travel towels’ have their issues… until now. Lavalinens has reimagined the travel towel to be everything you’ve ever needed and so much more. 

Using french linen and hemp, Lavalinens are super absorbent, packable, lightweight, quick-drying, and anti-microbial, making them better than terrycloth towels in… just about every measurable way.
