So what are some of the worst gift ideas for an eco-friendly couple? Here’s our choice of big no-nos regarding environmentally friendly gifts.
Plastic is among the leading polluters of the planet that has caused so much trouble for environmentalists. So plastic cups, bottles, home décor, or any other gift made from this material is not the best idea.
Coral jewelry or any jewelry piece made from ocean creatures like pearls should be avoided.
Gifts Needing Batteries
Any gift that requires a battery to operate means sooner or later, this tiny part will be corroding in a landfill and spreading harmful chemicals. If you cast an eye on such a gift, try buying one that can handle rechargeable batteries instead of regular ones.
Excessively Packaged Products
Products such as electronics and coffee machines come with a lot of wrapping and boxing material. These waste-generating elements won’t be welcome in an eco-conscious home.
