HULA’s Latest X’mas Eco-Gift Guide

by HULA , December 11, 2020

It’s gifting month again! Wrapped presents, pretty bows and Christmas cards, who doesn’t love the holiday season? It’s the month of joy and celebration but it could also easily turn into the month of mindless consumption. Having the market flooded with so many traditional (or unsustainable) gifting options, it might not be easy to discover small and indie brands that provide great eco-gifting options. We’ve done the hard work and research for those of you who care to make a difference this year. Scroll down for our list of sustainable and giftable items this Christmas.

 

For yourself or girlfriends…

Each piece is carefully designed by sustainability advocate Gloria Yu, having a B2C business model at the same time also allows a lower price markup, enabling Gloria to share her creativity with more women.
