The Joy of Ecofriendly Giving
The experience of shopping for gifts can be fun and genuinely heartfelt when you know the products you are gifting are not only unique and stylish but are vetted with mindfulness. We at Ecoist invested valuable time researching and finding the best products so that you can feel a hundred percent confident that your gift will have a zero waste impact. We help you express your own values and sense of care so that you can pass it on to others, who in turn will reach someone else. It takes true effort on all fronts but this is just one way we can all work together to clean up our beautiful world by giving eco-friendly gifts that are ultimately a gift back to nature.
The Takazawa Japanese Candle Set
Our Takazawa traditional Japanese candle is a prime example of a thoughtful gift that can be appreciated by the giver, the receiver and our precious planet. They were already eco-conscious over a hundred years ago, established in 1892 with the purpose of making their candles called ‘Wa-Rousoku’ from natural waxes derived from plant-based materials. The natural energy stored in these plants are utilized when these candles are burned thus making them eco-friendly. The flame of the candle burns bigger and brighter due to their traditional wick and when extinguished the candles release less soot and less unpleasant odor thanks to the natural plant based waxes. Giver, receiver, nature…all taken care of.
The Urishi Candle Set
Another perfectly conscientious gift is the Urishi candle made from plant-derived raw material. They use the fruits of the Urishi tree harvested in Wajima, a small city famous for lacquerware from the sap of the Urishi tree. The fruits are a very precious and used in a small quantity only once a year in autumn. The Urishi candles are sold on a first come – first served basis making them a very unique thoughtful gift indeed!
Earth-Friendly Towels and Bathrobes for Kids
When gifting our young mothers and children it is important sometimes to give creatively and meaningfully. What could be more fitting than a GOTS (global organic textile) 100% organic cotton, Big Waffle Baby Towel that is made with zero tolerances against pesticides, heavy metal and other polluting chemicals as well as emitting 94 percent less greenhouse gases as compared to conventional cotton production? It is the best towel for when your baby comes out of the bath and the best to swaddle them in softness and comfort. For their older brothers or sisters (2 to 4 years old) there is the appropriate gift of the Big Waffle Kids Bathrobe which is a distinctive and practical after bathwear for active young kids and for Juniors, well there is the Big Waffle Junior Bathrobe that can be used for indoor and outdoor water activities.
