1. Sustainable Activewear
I absolutely love everything about this brand because of the effort they put into sustainability. Their packaging is 100% recycled and recyclable. Their Compressive Leggings and Bras are made from 79% recycled polyester and 21% spandex. The leggings are made from 25 recycled post-consumer bottles, and the bras are made from 11.
2. Zero-Waste Kitchen Bundle
This kitchen bundle is great for beginners who are looking to start their sustainability journey but don’t know where to begin! It includes a loofah sponge, Swedish dishcloth, reusable snack bags, a soap tray, a solid dish bar, and a wooden dish brush.
3. Biodegradable Phone & Airpods Case
I absolutely love Pela Case and everything they stand for! They are the first brand to start making biodegradable phone cases. They have one for almost every phone, and they started making cases for Airpods too! They also have a great buy one get one free promotion going on, so get one while it lasts!!
4. Biodegradable Sunglasses
I love this gift, especially if your daughter is someone that loves sunglasses! This is a really great replacement for regular sunglasses, and they have so many cute options!
5. Monsterra Leaf Earrings
These earrings are absolutely gorgeous. They’re handmade from walnut wood and ships plastic-free!
6. Coconut Bowls
Coconut bowls are a beautiful gift! They’re sustainable, aesthetic, and every purchase from Etsy ships carbon neutral!
7. Eco-friendly Pamper Kit
This is a great kit for replacing common single-use and wasteful items. The kit includes biodegradable bamboo cotton buds, reusable bamboo cotton makeup remover pads, a 100% cotton laundry bag, a travel-size face mask, and a travel-size natural massage soap.
8. Compost Bin
If your daughter is practicing becoming more sustainable, a compost bin is a wonderful way to help her on her journey! This one is made from silicone and recycled stainless steel. It ships in recycled and recyclable content.

9. Silicone Snack Bag
This is perfect for zero-waste snacks! This is a great alternative to single-use plastic bags, so if your daughter is interested in sustainability or you’re encouraging her to be, this is the perfect gift! You can’t go wrong with sustainable and cute. 😉
10. Spiced Pumpkin Soy Candle
Because candles are the perfect gift for a loved one! I mean, who doesn’t love a good-smelling and environmentally-friendly candle, right?
11. Natural & Clean Makeup
The Detox Market is the perfect place to shop when looking for clean and natural makeup. They have a huge selection of different brands and products to choose from! They only work with brands that use clean and natural ingredients that are good for the planet and your skin! Really the perfect and most caring gift for your daughter!
12. Handmade Natural Bar Soap
I also happen to make natural luxurious bar soap that feels great on the skin. You can choose between several different scents. Take a look at my shop! You can also get 15% off when you sign up for my newsletter.
13. Reusable Makeup Remover Pads
Makeup remover wipes are one of those things that we don’t really notice how much waste it actually produces, especially if you wear makeup often. Reusable makeup remover pads are an excellent replacement, and in my experience, they have removed makeup much better than wipes. These pads also come in so many different design options (and they’re all so cute).
14. Straw Sleeve
If your daughter has glass straws, then this is an excellent gift for her! She can keep her straws safe and take them with her anywhere. This sleeve is made from remnant sustainable fabric or has been upcycled.
15. Personalized Glass Straw
If your daughter doesn’t have any glass straws, personalize one for her! These are so cute and so personal; I love them. You can embed a straw with a name or phrase. This will make a great addition to her straw sleeve!
16. Ethical Jewelry
As much as we are focusing on zero-waste brands, I think it is also important to support brands that are supporting actual people and their lives. 31 Bits work directly with women in Uganda, and now Indonesia, to make beautiful and modern jewelry. 31 Bits help support these women through health care, counseling, and financial education. By purchasing through this brand, you are directly supporting and helping to empower these women.
