"Christmas is the most wonderful time of the year. With those holiday greetings and great happy meetings" as the saying goes. We all love Christmas - giving and receiving presents, eating tons of delicious food, playing some board games and spending time with our loved ones. It's also the time when people seem to willingly throw unwanted gifts away. Most of us have too much stuff already which means during the holiday season we need to think carefully what we give. Instead of buying tons of plastic we should opt for long-lasting, compostable and recyclable gifts. 

Find out our favourite zero waste gift ideas that you can gift your loved ones this Christmas!


Gifts such as unforgettable experience can last a lifetime in memories. There are so many things you can do e.g. purchase tickets to a concert, theatre, ballet, restaurant. You can go ice skating, indoor rock climbing and the list goes on and on. Experience is a wonderful gift as long as you know what the person likes and enjoys.
