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!
Consumable gifts are a great low waste option - who doesn’t like food?! Or a free jar? Gifts in jars are inexpensive, but made with intention and given with love. This holiday tea blend, full of warming spices and flavours, is a great gift for teachers, neighbours, friends, and family!
Embracing the rhythms of winter is key to creating eco-conscious holiday traditions. Rather than getting carried away by the holiday rush, use this time as an opportunity to create the kind of holiday season you truly want - one focused on the magic of family and togetherness instead of stuff.
The holiday season has so many opportunities to be green beyond eco-friendly gifts, wrapping, or decorations. Work some of these broader themes into your holiday break to start the new year off with a sustainable mindset.
