Thinking of shopping for an eco-friendly person? Check out these 23 eco-friendly stocking stuffers for the holidays.
During the holidays, it can be easy to forget about our planet with all of the gift-giving and big meals.
And hey, you don’t really want to think “green” all of the time but remember that the items you buy do affect the earth.
There’s no harm in going a little out of your way to finding cool, well made eco-friendly products for gifts and stocking stuffers.
Here’s a look at some of the best eco-friendly stocking stuffers available and where you can find them.
Eco-friendly Hemp Gloves
What’s a better stocking stuffer for an upcoming cold winter than a good set of gloves?
If you’re not too up on the eco-friendly movement, relax. You can’t smoke the gloves but hemp gloves are warm, exceptionally comfortable, and cheap.
Hemp is a good material for our planet, as it’s easy on the land to grow and tends to come from farms that engage in good business and trade practices.
Below are some great hemp glove recommendations to give as gifts this year:-
This is a great eco-friendly stocking stuffer for small kids because even if you’re buying only eco-conscious toys, the chances are good that a few battery drainers got in there.
Ni-MH batteries are better for the environment because they can be used over and over again, and they don’t end up in landfills.
It’s also a small, inexpensive gift, and though it’s cliche, it’s the kind of gift that keeps on giving (as long as the batteries are holding a charge, anyway).
Ni-MH batteries can be used on TV remotes, wireless mouses, electronic toys, game controllers, and much more.

Bamboo coasters are great stocking stuffers and promote the healthy growth of bamboo forests.
They’re also a stylish way to protect furniture. They’re a bit pricey but well worth it as a gift for home decor fanatics. You can personalize them too.
These special coasters feature state maps split in quarters across 4 coasters. The maps are laser-engraved for longevity.
Coasters are available for New York, Washington, California, Alabama, Texas, and more. See all the states available HERE.
