2.Eco friendly chocolate
Chocolate is yummy and depending on what type you buy, it is good for the body. What’s inspiring about divine chocolate is that the farmers have a stake in the chocolate company, known as the day chocolate company. The farmers receive their own share of the profits from sales the company makes. It is not surprising that the company received an award for millennium product status.
3.Reusable Water Bottle
A reusable water bottle would last long making it an excellent gift for that special someone; be it your mom, grandmother or aunt. Reusable water bottles are great for the environment since the need to buy bottled water is eliminated. Your loved one would appreciate it because this is a container that can be used many times.
4.Reusable grocery boxes
Reusable storage containers are great for the environment. Reusable grocery boxes reduce the amount of plastic bags that end up in the ocean and landfill. Their beauty lies in the fact that they take up very little space, keep cold items ‘cold’, hot items ‘hot’ and they stay open for quick unpacking. Earthwise is always making a difference in the lives of people by supporting different non-profit groups as their mission is to keep their planet green and clean.
5.Eco friendly handbag
