Maybe you have that friend who is living a sustainable, eco-friendly life. Maybe you have that family member that you would like to think twice about their choice in fast fashion. Maybe you yourself are just looking to give gifts that are better for our planet.
Anything made from hemp would be an ideal Christmas gift for those people mentioned above. Sustainable hemp is a fast-growing plant that requires little water or harmful pesticides to grow. It cleans our contaminated soil, needs little space to grow and can be grown in almost any environment. There are over 50,000 products that can be made from hemp and they are biodegradable. Clothing made from hemp fabric is insulating yet breathable, antimicrobial and becomes softer with each wear.
Here are 10 eco-friendly hemp gift ideas from my favourite supplier Efforts Eco-Essentials.
1. Hemp Saddle Bag
This rugged unisex saddle bag with adjustable shoulder strap makes a great gift for the traveller or person-on-the-go. The pockets and pouches will hold a multitude of personal items and keep them close to the body, so they are safe and secure. Made from hemp and cotton twill, this sturdy bag will hold up in any adventure.
2. Women’s Hemp ¾ Sleeve Fluid Top
This stylish top is suitable for all body types. It is cut for a relaxed fit and to accentuate a feminine silhouette. The blend of hemp and organic cotton makes it soft and comfortable to wear. It is available in 8 colours and sizes S-XXL.
