Gifts That Are Friendly to the Environment
We’ve all got that friend who must be appraised of the way in which whatever you’re doing is good for the environment, or they can’t be satisfied. A lot of people are very passionate about that which is defined as “sustainable” today. The good news is, you don’t have to spend thousands of dollars on a solar array to “make the grade”, as it were.
Following we’ll briefly explore three sustainable gift ideas which your eco-conscious friend will absolutely love, and which might just help reduce unsustainable waste in the environment.
A Gravity-Powered or Water-Powered Lamp
There are lamps that use things like gravity to generate electricity. Also, there are some water-powered flashlights you can find in Walmart, of all places.
New means of providing electricity are being discovered all the time, but the gravity lamp is one of the most elegant options out there. It works like a weighted cuckoo clock but produces light. Your eco-conscious colleague will absolutely adore it.
The Sustainable Gift That Keeps on Giving
A sustainable gift box will provide the recipient with monthly options related to trending sustainable goods.
Subscription boxes are incredibly convenient, they’re a lot of fun, they’re trending, and when you combine an eco-friendly focus to such a gift, well that just takes the cake. If you can afford the monthly subscription, this is a fine gift for an eco-conscious colleague.
Water Bottles Drawing Water From Air
Another very interesting technological innovation that helps reap natural resources without stressing the environment is the waterless water bottle. Okay, that term is the author’s invention, but here’s the reason for it: modern tech makes it possible to extract water from the very air.
The link goes to an article about “Fontus”, which is a water bottle using science to extract ambient moisture. This won’t have any salts, minerals, or chemicals in it. There is no fluoride in water pulled right from the air. It’s one of the purest ways to generate water there is. Especially for the eco-conscious colleague who is also into doomsday prep, this is great.
In fact, when you think about it, there’s a lot of overlap between products that are “sustainable”, and those which are “off-grid”. Gravity lights, water bottles that pull moisture from the air, and solar panels are all things you’d expect to find in an off-grid facility. If your colleagues are into preparation, “sustainable” gifts are good for them, too.
Pleasing Your Colleague and Protecting the Environment
It can be hard to find sustainable gifts for colleagues that are set on sustainability. That said, many options exist in today’s world.
Whether you buy them a subscription to sustainable goods which sends them a box every month, a water bottle that extracts ambient moisture, a light that runs on water, or a gravity light, such gifts will likely be appreciated by your ecologically-minded colleague.
