Bamboo Compost Bin

Whether you’re a composting pro or just thinking about getting into it, it’s always a little disheartening to buy more plastic when you’re trying to create less trash. Thankfully, Bamboozle’s compost bin is made of biodegradable and durable bamboo fibers—in other words, it’ll last for ages and have a low impact when its composting days are over.

The cute little container with a breathable lid, odor-blocking carbon filter, and slim bamboo handle makes it the perfect countertop composter that you won’t want to hide away (you might even get your next dinner party guests into composting, too!). Turning your dinner scraps into garden soil has never looked better.

FIR & CO Heirloom Dolls

Beginning in 2020, Lauren Densley started handcrafting customizable heirloom dolls, and had a small little dream to be able to give back in some way.  A portion of the proceeds from each purchase is donated to ONE TREE PLANTED, helping plant trees in areas around the world in desperate need of reforestation.

Owner and creator Lauren states, “creating beautiful, slow-made treasures for your babes – and my own little girls – fills my heart with incredible joy, but then to have the incredible opportunity to turn around and give back to the earth in such a beautiful way gives me life!” 

Dolls are individually made and can be customized to order. To stay up to date on the tree planting and doll making journey at FIR & CO, be sure to follow them on Instagram – @firandco.

Let’s join together, and instill in our children a love and respect for this beautiful earth that so desperately needs us!

Fracture Glass Photo Prints

Chances are most of the folks on your gift list have taken a lot of meaningful, inspiring photos that will never make it off of their phone due to the hassle of traditional printing. A Fracture print seamlessly solves both of those issues by allowing you (or your gift recipient) to easily order a beautiful, durable picture printed directly onto glass by uploading your favorite photos through their website. 

The prints are frameless and the mounting kit is built directly into the foam core backing so they come ready to hang on the wall or on a stand which they offer on their site. Better yet, let them display their favorite images on Fracture’s latest product The Storyboard, a sustainably-sourced floating wood shelf with grooves to safely slide your prints and other office-inspiring mementos on. You and your giftee will feel even better about the gift knowing that Fracture is a carbon-neutral company where sustainability is central to everything that they do from their minimalist packaging to their recycle-friendly manufacturing process.

 All of their shipping boxes are made from 100% recycled cardboard and can be fully recycled. They’ve custom-engineered their packaging to not need any plastic or fossil-fuel derived “packaging fluff” such as packing peanuts, bubble wrap, etc.  All the waste glass they produce is shipped to a local glass recycling facility. Their new 30,000 square foot facility is completely powered by solar energy. The sunlight is absorbed by solar roofs as well as solar “trees”, architectural installations with metal “tree trunks” and “limbs” with circular solar panels taking the place of leaves.”
