There is a lot of plastic in this world, so it’s important that we all do our bit to reduce it, especially when buying gifts. You could try and have a plastic-free Christmas this year, with eco-friendly, sustainable gifts and Christmas items.
Where To Shop
There are lots of places that offer plastic-free ranges, but PomPom is an online shop selling plastic free gifts, toys, games and homeware. They also a collection of eco-friendly gifts that have been designed for Christmas.
I’m a fan of PomPom, because it’s a 100% plastic free company, with no BPA nasties, and their range of Christmas gifts are perfect for those who wanting to shop consciously this Christmas.
PomPom also supports the Marine Conservation Society, which shares the company’s plastic free mission. They also give a share of all profits to this UK-based charity, who work tirelessly to protect our seas, shores and marine wildlife.
Every order is wrapped and delivered to customers with totally plastic free packaging. Items arrive in recycled cardboard boxes, with biodegradable labels and green recycled tissue.
There are a range of things to choose from. But here are some items that have caught my eye:
1) Luxury Plastic Free Christmas Crackers
Crackers are an essential for your Christmas dinner table, but they often contain plastic. These beautiful crackers each contain a useful and totally plastic free gift! They are £45 per box and they are available in in either Nutcracker or North Pole design.
2) Personalised Garden Tools
My son loves playing in the garden, so this trowel, fork and spade naturally caught my eye. I love that they can be personalised with any name you like as well. The set costs £24.99.
3) Handmade Felt Kids Slippers
These Odette Swan Children’s Slippers are adorable. But if your child isn’t into swans, fear not; you can choose from swans, lions, sheep and rabbits. Costing £29.99, these gorgeous swan slippers will keep their feet warm this Christmas.
Making Positive Changes
You don’t have to go fully plastic free this Christmas. But consider making some small changes, as they really do add up.
If you’re buying gifts, you should also make sure they’re meaningful!
