Christmas Gift Guide – Top 10 Ethical Companies

1. Seafoam Jewellery

The best ethical gifts for those who like something pretty and sparkly…

Rachel lives in East London with her family where she creates the most beautiful jewellery inspired by the Ancient Greek goddess Aphrodite and created using 24ct gold leaf and sea glass that she personally collects from the Cornish coast. Rachel’s mission for Seafoam Jewellery is not only beautiful pieces to bring out your inner goddess but also sustainability. More information on the actions that she undertakes to make her business sustainable can be found on her website, but you can rest assured knowing that the sealant used to coat the jewellery is eco-friendly and BPA-free and her packaging is made from recycled and recyclable materials and water-based inks.

2. The Isle of Wight Distillery

A gift for those who enjoy a celebratory drink…

The Isle of Wight Distillery focuses on creating spirits inspired by the coast that also help to protect and preserve it for future generations. They are currently working with a number of local charities to help preserve the coastlines, including the Hampshire and Isle of Wight Wildlife Trust who they have partnered with to restore the seagrass meadows (plants that are amazingly effective at storing carbon) in the water between the of Isle of Wight and mainland Britain. Additionally, all of their spirits are stored in eco-friendly bottles that are so beautiful you will want to reuse them forever!

3. Pentire

And for those who prefer a non-alcoholic Christmas tipple…

Pentire’s non-alcoholic spirits are not only delicious but channel the power of plants to create a drinking experience that celebrates the great outdoors and also contain many amazing nutritional benefits. Their ingredients are sourced responsibly, using Fair Trade and Organically Certified ingredients where possible, and all of their packaging is completely plastic-free, with carbon off-set delivery, making their spirits some of the best ethical gifts on my Christmas shopping list this year!

Ethical gifts for the green-fingered…

Seedball is a wonderful company that creates exactly what it says on the tin… a seed ball!

Seedball presents a fun and easy way to plant wildflowers and is an excellent opportunity to educate younger generations on the importance of wildlife and biodiversity, from bees to butterflies.
