ECO FRIENDLY STOCKING STUFFERS IDEAS
One note. I have included some Amazon stocking stuffer ideas in here. While ideally we would prefer to always support small local eco businesses, when buying eco friendly products, sometimes that’s not possible. Or sometimes the higher price tag can make them out of reach for many people.
Especially with lack of stores and shipping costs to remote places like where I live. With Prime free 2 day shipping and access to many eco products it makes these accessible to more people. Which is why I’ve included a variety of businesses you can choose from, to find the perfect stocking stuffer.
Read on to find ideas to add to your Christmas gifts lists for plastic free gift ideas, zero waste stocking stuffers and organic stocking stuffers, for everyone who makes your “nice” list.
