Stockings are a fun way to create new eco-conscious holiday traditions and begin the shift toward more mindful and low waste gift giving. Rather than plastic dollar store trinkets, fewer (but better quality) items that can be used throughout the year can be much more fun. Here are 30+ eco-friendly stocking stuffer ideas for kids!
Reusable cloths made from natural fibres are a great way to eliminate sponges, paper towels, makeup wipes, and cotton facial rounds. Knitting your own is an easy beginner project that can help you learn a new skill and reduce waste at the same time. Already a knitter? You'll have a stack in no time with this simple pattern.
Consumable gifts are a great low waste options any time of the year. Who doesn't like food?! Or a free jar? Over the years I have done baking mixes, soups, coffee, tea blends, and infused olive oils. Most ingredients can be sourced in bulk or even grown in your outdoor space. Gifts in jars are inexpensive, but made with intention and given with love.
