After chatting to Roxanne from Charms and Chains about her Christmas baubles and decorations, I had to share with you a little roundup of some really amazing products that she has to offer. Having teamed up with Jess from the Refill Garage, you can rest assured that they are all eco friendly and perfect for gifting this Christmas!
There’s currently 7 products available from this amazing collaboration that ranges from £3 to £16 (3 gift boxes, and 4 single products), so they’re perfect for secret Santa or as a stocking filler.
Eco Friendly Gift Boxes
I’m obsessed with the gift boxes that C&C and the Refill Garage have put together. Each box comes with a bamboo toothbrush and a Faith in Nature Soap Bar alongside a unique eco-friendly product to help you start making little changes that will reduce your plastic waste.
According to www.water.org.uk, 7.7 billion plastic water bottles are used each year in the UK alone. It’s hard to believe that we are constantly paying for a bit of plastic to carry our water around in, never mind considering the impact that this kind of senseless consumerism is having on our planet. The reusable bottle included in this gift box is a gorgeous elephant print design by Sass & Belle, so you can help do your bit for the planet and look wonderfully chic at the same time!
Sass & Belle Rainbow Print Travel Mug
This nifty Sass & Belle mug is made with 45% Bamboo Fiber, 25% Corn Fiber, 5% Wood Fiber and 25% Melamine. It’s printed with a lovely rainbow print and is perfect if you’re a ‘coffee on the go’ kinda person.
I personally use a travel mug daily and like to keep one close for an unexpected Starbucks trip. You can buy this separately or in a lovely gift set that comes with a Biodegradable Teapigs Tea Temple bag for you to sample on the go!
Pink String Shopper Bag
These little shopper bags are the rage at the minute. They’re crafted from 100% cotton, so they’re really durable and easy to pop in your coat pocket or your handbag for when you’re out food shopping.
My parents have just got back from Florida, where apparently these are used for shopping, going to the beach, the pool and just for pottering around with – they’re even displayed on mannequins in fancy clothing stores!
Stainless Steel Straws & Cleaner
If you’ve been anywhere near the internet the past few years, you’ll have seen story after story about straws. We know that they’re a terrible single use plastic and we know that a lot of companies have really struggled to give us an alternative that a) doesn’t go all goopy in your milkshake, and b) can actually *cough* be recycled *cough*.
We can’t sit around waiting for these people to get their act together and make something that actually works, and to be honest, there’s absolutely no need for us to. These stainless steel straws are discreet, easy to use and easy to clean – you can even pop them in the dishwasher.
You can buy these on their own, or you can find them in both of the Sass and Belle travel mug gift sets!
