Sustainable Gifts To Give This Christmas

by Ella Smith on November 22, 2022

Why Sustainable Gifts:

Is there any feeling better than picking the perfect pressie? You know the one. It bubbles up, all warm and fuzzy when you have found something practical and beautiful, something they will adore unwrapping and using for years to come. Something just right. 

We think we found it: sustainable, practical gifts that are guaranteed to be loved.

If you have seen any news headlines about the environment right now, you will know that our planet is suffering. While the magnitude of the issue might make it seem insurmountable, at Pottery For The Planet we believe in the power of every individual action to create collective change. Christmas, with its disposable decorations, novelty and obligatory gifts bought just to fill stockings or occupy space under the tree can dishearten the eco-minded amongst us. Which is why we are bringing you a gift guide of eco-friendly gifts, sustainably sourced in time for your seasonal shopping. There are feel-good environmentally and ethically friendly for him/her/them, friends, family and beyond!

Travel Cups:

Meet a Pottery For The Planet legend! These Travel Cups are as old as we are. Our Pottery began when co-founders Renton Bishopric and Clare Botfield decided to create an alternative to single-use, disposable coffee cups—and they have been so popular, we never stopped. With a 100% silicon Travel Lid, multiple sizes and whole host of glazes to choose from, these Cups were made for sipping in style.

Travel Bowls:

We all know someone impossible to buy for. Whether they have everything they could want or they don’t want anything at all 🙄. Get them a gift that is practical and truly unique with our Travel Bowls. Picnic perfect, meal prep ready or as an office lunch box that packs a sustainable punch - these Bowls will have your nearest and dearest wondering why they ever bothered with plastic containers.
