If the man of your life is a nature-lover,  can there be anything better than giving him an eco-friendly gift?


Take a look at three awesome eco-friendly gifts for him.

1.   Get The Nature-Loving Guy Hemp Clothes

men's yellow hemp shirt

The products derived from hemp are sustainable and changing the world for the better!

Cotton, linen, denim, leather, and fabrics. What’s common in them? They are used in manufacturing clothes and generate a lot of waste (and are not eco-friendly).

So If your boyfriend or husband prefers to live an eco-friendly lifestyle, get him clothes made from hemp.

Hemp clothing is durable, lightweight, soft, absorbent, UV resistant,  breathable, and has many other useful attributes.

You can get anything from a t-shirt to jeans or trousers made from hemp cloth. So get this awesome eco-friendly gift for him and support his lifestyle!

2.   Switch The Regular Bag With An Eco-Friendly Backpack

The backpacks are usually made from plastic, nylon, Pvc, canvas fabric, cotton, leather, and sometimes a mix of the mentioned materials.

As you can guess, these backpacks are not eco-friendly and definitely non-biodegradable.

But do you know that there are eco-friendly backpacks?

These backpacks are made from recycled materials and some are even made entirely from plants.

I’m not kidding! Hemp backpacks are available in the market which is long-lasting, durable, and 100% biodegradable. 

And some companies also manufacture backpacks made from recycled plastic from oceans (how amazing is that, isn’t it?)

So make your man happy with this eco-friendly gift!

3.   Metallic Water Bottle For Better Health

If your man is still using a plastic water bottle, it’s time to throw it away!

Drinking from plastic bottles can lead to chemical leaching and the plastic particles will end up being ingested. In the long run, it can cause toxicity.

Also, bacteria built-up is common in plastic bottles.

So, get a stainless steel water bottle for your man as an eco-friendly gift (if he is not using it already).

If he is a nature lover, he must be aware of the hazards of plastic bottles and must be using glass bottles. But the downside of glass bottles is that they are fragile and won’t last long.

The stainless steel bottle is safe to store water and is sustainable in the long run. You can also choose to give him a copper water bottle which is said to have positive health benefits.

These were our top picks for eco-friendly gifts for him!

D) Eco-Friendly Gifts For Babies

There are so many gifts that you can give to newly become parents, but what if they are zero-waste enthusiasts?

In that case, finding sustainable gifts for their baby can be a task.

Don’t worry. I have made a list of the top three eco-friendly gifts for babies.

These gifts are practical and suitable for babies, regardless of their parents being nature-lovers or not.

Check them out.   

1.   Ditch The Paper Straws With Stainless Steel Straw

stainless steel straws

When the baby grows older, it is motivated to drink milk from the glass.

As the babies find this task difficult, they are initially given paper straws to drink the milk.

The problems with using paper straws are that:

  1. A straw can be used only once.
  2. They are non-eco-friendly (create a lot of waste).
  3. The baby may chew and ingest the paper.

So how can you help the parents tackle this?

By giving them a bunch of stainless steel straw! These straws are a healthy alternative to the ones made from paper. They can be washed and reused till the baby grows old enough to drink milk from a glass!

So get stainless steel straw as eco-friendly gifts for babies.

2.   Bamboo Wipes For Nature-Conscious Parents

Most of the baby wipes are made from non-woven fabrics which are not substantial. Also, they can leave a rash on a baby’s skin.

So if you’re planning to give baby wipes to nature-loving parents, I’ll suggest you choose baby wipes made from bamboo.

They’re natural and 100% biodegradable as compared to the wipes made from non-woven fabrics.

What’s more, they are more gentle on baby’s skin than regular wipes. So get bamboo wipes and give them as eco-friendly gifts for babies

3.   Organic Baby Diaper For A Happy Baby

Imagine how much non-degradable waste will pile up as the baby grows up. (Commercial baby diaper can take more than 500 years to biodegrade)

So get organic baby diapers and give them as eco-friendly gifts for babies.

They are super soft and comfortable than regular diapers. Plus, they are 100% biodegradable. (A bonus point for nature-loving parents.)

Here are ten things that you should avoid buying or giving them as a gift. (Never give these things to nature-loving folks. NEVER.)

  3. Disposable cutlery (a lot of waste!).
  4. Baby Food pouches (create a ton of waste that is not biodegradable).
  5. Meat (The tasty meat has the highest carbon footprint on the planet! Hard to believe, right?).
  6. Products made with palm oil (production of palm oil causes deforestation).
  7. Products made with refined sugar (growing sugarcane causes pollution to its surrounding areas).
  8. Teabags (Imagine how much packaging material is wasted for every box of tea bags).
  9. Potato chips (The bag is made from various different materials which are hard to separate and recycle).
  10. Paper towel sets (Most of them are not recyclable).

So these are our top eco-friendly gifts for the nature-loving folks in your life.

We believe in conserving mama earth! So always try to get eco-friendly gifts for everyone (regardless if they are nature-lovers or not).

Among the list, I feel that a handmade portrait is the best eco-friendly gift for your tree-hugger pal.
