What do you give as a gift for Valentine’s Day to your eco-conscious other half? How about a zero-waste starter kit? Whether your other half is taking their first steps in to living more sustainably or is in the process of going plastic-free, zero-waste starter kits are a practical and thoughtful gift on all accounts.
Wearth, an online marketplace which partners with independent UK brands making contemporary products in an eco-friendly and ethical way, have a range of gifts that make ideal gifts to a newbie zero-waster or a pro zero-waster. There’s everything from Wakeup’s shopping kit containing a vegan tote, a bamboo water bottle, and a bamboo straw; One Green Bottle’s stainless steel lunch box set; a loose leaf herbal tea starter kit; and a reusable razor kit by Naked Necessities.
For those wanting to give their other half’s ditching of plastic a leg up, then &Keep’s Plastic-Free Starter kit is likely to tick all the boxes.
