Sustainable Gift Guide

Sustainable Gift Guide

This Christmas, it’s never been more important to choose the best eco-friendly gifts for your loved ones. 

Beyond being cooler than the generic gifts seen EVERYWHERE, buying sustainable gifts means you won't be adding to the extra 30% of rubbish that's produced and discarded throughout the festive period in New Zealand. That's an additional 3 million tonnes of waste just in the silly season! 

So, here's a quick gift guide to make your presents as green as your Christmas tree.
