Earth Day is an important day each year when we all pay tribute to the environment and explore ways to protect and maintain it. And while it isn’t traditionally a gift-giving holiday, it’s a beautiful excuse to find eco-friendly spins on all of our favorite ways to be thoughtful.
Here’s some of our favorite eco-friendly Earth Day gifts that make the perfect planet-friendly present, every day.
Wearwell Rotika Bowl
This natural and handwoven rattan basket was made by artisans in Cambodia that receive a livable wage. If they need a bowl to keep their random items, from keys to face masks to perhaps their phone, this can be placed near the door and is easily accessible every time they come home at the end of a long day.
POLYWOOD Pet Feeder
Our pets are beloved members of the family, and this eco-friendly pet feeder is made of durable lumber made from recycled landfill-bound and ocean-bound plastic containers. It can be built to order in a variety of colors to make it truly your own, and comes with removable stainless steel dishes, so cleaning couldn’t be easier. You want your pets to have an eating experience that will be easy and accessible and also enjoyable, and this is just that, plus it’s kind to the environment at the same time.

Clean & Pure Beekeeper’s Favorite Lip Balms, 4 Pack
The key to being kinder to the earth is to make better choices every day. These 100% all natural lip balms come in tubes and packaging that are fully recyclable, and their farms run on renewable power and water. But aside from being good for the environment, they are also a way to look and feel good every day, all day – and that’s the best gift of all.
Saatva Organic Weighted Blanket
There’s nothing like the gift of a comforting, good night’s sleep, and this tan organic plush weighted blanket offers just that. Science shows that weighted blankets have a soothing, calming effect and increase relaxation.

Westerlay Black Sapphire Gemstone Orchid
This gorgeous orchid with a striking deep dark purple color comes with two spikes of partially open blooms in a black ceramic pot. There’s no better way than giving the gift of plant life (especially gorgeous plant life) to encourage taking better care of and appreciating the beauty of nature around us.
Grouphug Window Solar Charger
Many believe solar technology is the key to earth’s future, but renewable energy does not have to be overwhelming or confusing. This window solar charger is easy-to-install and even easier to use, and can charge all your devices with the power of the sun. How simple and easy (and cool?!) is that?
Out of the Woods Pure Cord Shopper
A big part of the Earth Day concept is trying to support products that will make your own life and routine more eco-friendly. A big part of that is avoiding paper and plastic bags by carrying reusable totes. This daily shopping bag nas a nautical woodsy feel thanks to the rope handles but the bag itself is made of Supernatural Paper which has the look and feel of leather but is washable, sustainable and 100% vegan. Use it for everything from grocery shopping to carrying lunch to work and doing daily errands.
Takeya Actives Insulated Water Bottle With Spout Lid
Disposable plastic bottles are terrible for the environment, which is what makes a reusable insulated bottle a fantastic gift idea this Earth Day. This will obviously help to eliminate plastic bottle waste — studies have shown that opting for a reusable bottle can save over 12 billion single-use plastic bottles from ending up in landfills. But it also will save your own time and money. Simply refill wherever you are, whenever you need, be it school, work, or even an airport. It comes in a variety of sizes and colors to fit any needs or lifestyle.
