Living in sustainability should always begin at home. Some of the ways to start living sustainably is to create your own healthy environment by using sustainable materials, supporting local and organic foods, start practicing and realize local cultural values and so many more ways to start an eco-friendly lifestyle. Eco friendly products are starting to mushroom in stores online and in the marketplace which means we can also have eco friendly gifts. Making a huge change in your lifestyle may never be easy but every step you will be taking will lead you in the right direction.
1. Window Solar Panel-Grouphug
2. Menstrual Cups and Reusable Cloth Pads
Another alternative to junk those sanitary napkins for good. Uneasy and may be quite uncomfortable for the first few days of use but generally will be a big help for your pockets and your health as well. Frequent use of sanitary pads can cause cancer and can interfere with your reproductive system because it contains BPA and other harmful chemicals. Also, sanitary pads are the common garbage to fill the garbage bins. Menstrual cups and reusable cloth pads are best if you want to avoid the plastic pads from your garbage bin.
3. Reusable Sandwich Bags
Let’s help stop filling the landfills and the oceans with those plastic baggies. Why not take these reusable sandwich bags as a replacement for those baggies instead?. These lovelies are just the answer to start switching to an eco-friendly lifestyle. Usually made up of silicone or cloth, and reusable sandwich bags are dishwasher and microwave safe and guaranteed easy to clean, no wonder these are highly recommended sustainable gift ideas. Just Awesome!
4. Compost Bin
Compost Bin’s benefits to saving the environment is that they reduce the garbage dumped in landfills. Also, it is helping by bringing back the carbon to the ground which is one way of decreasing the damage of climate change. Composting is easy although it takes one or more people to actually prepare and have it permanently in the house. Well, if this is what it takes to save the world then let’s do it with a bud or two! Gifting problems solved and making a memorable experience as well. Yeah!
5. Bamboo Straws
Cutest and useful eco friendly gifts, guaranteed 100% chemical free. Bamboo is biodegradable, natural antibacterial and the most ecological resource on earth. It’s easy to carry and we can bring them anywhere we go and just clean it after every use. There are a lot of options aside from bamboo straws that are also eco friendly.

6. Reusable Grocery Bag
These bags are made up of recycled plastic that can be used 11 times before we can finally dispose of it.
