  1. Great guide! I always think about my own sustainable consumption but don’t often think to gift it. The swim ware looks cute!

  2. Love this post. I want to become more sustainable and this gives me a little start. Instead of buying useless gifts, I’m going to buy from this list. Maybe even get some gifts for myself. Thank you for the post!

  3. Thanks for the info! Always good to be informed of things we don’t even realize are harming others around us so that we can help make a positive impact on the world. Pinned.

  4. Alex, thanks for sharing your sustainable gift guide! As a wine lover and a kombucha lover myself, these tips are perfect.

  5. I love this guide, nice work!
    If you write another, I would love to be included. My reusable market totes are eco friendly both because they are reusable and because they are sewn from empty feedbags otherwise destined for the landfill.

  6. There are so many sustainable gift ideas here! I am trying to get more and more into a greener life (I even recently switched my hosting to Greengeeks). Thanks for sharing these 🙂

  7. I absolutely love this!
    A few of these are on my Xmas list. And I’m normally not much of a gift receiver, I always feel guilty asking for things but all of these are amazing and have purpose and use.

    Thanks for sharing these ideas.

  8. I already love gift guides, but when you add sustainable to this, makes it 100x better! Thanks so much for sharing, girl, you’re spreading great messages x
