While a festive season like we never known before gathers pace, we round up our gift recommendations to inspire those looking to embrace a sustainable approach without compromising on good design…
WXY have created an all-round cleaner, better and fairer candle with a donation to charity built-in.
Their fragrances are thoughtfully created and incorporated into hand-poured candles made in the UK using recyclable materials wherever possible, and virtually no plastics. Their products contain no animal-derived materials or parabens and for great, clean-burning results, they use a 100% plant-based wax which is palm-free and wood wicks.
WXY’s Amber collection features a special range of elemental scents inspired by nature and the natural world.
Form biodegradable yoga mat
Form takes a 360° approach to health, fitness and sustainability.
Their mission is two-fold, helping you and helping the planet: one – to improve the health of their customers and the health of our planet, through designing beautiful, sustainable, high-performance fitness products, and two – to inspire and lead a movement within the fitness industry, where sustainable design becomes the standard, not the exception.
Onyx is their first fully bio-degradable mat, designed using a unique material with a smooth, instantly-grippy surface and sustainably sourced natural rubber base, providing you with comfort and support from day one. This smart, sophisticated mat has been laser-engraved with the Form Grid, helping you to improve alignment and consistency during your practice.
Good Company notebook
A Good Company do not compromise between design and sustainability.
They have created the world’s first climate-positive notebook made from recycled stone. Leftover stone from local industries is transformed into paper in a process that uses no water or chemicals and runs on solar energy. The result? Naturally white paper which has no grain direction resulting in a frictionless, silky-smooth writing experience. It is also waterproof, tear-resistant and wrinkle-free.
And to make their products not just neutral, but climate-positive, they offset all carbon emissions from the production of each notebook using carbon capture programmes such as tree planting, capturing more than is emitted, so each notebook has a negative carbon footprint.
