You can never be too early to start Christmas shopping, especially if, like me, you like to buy online. And with the current pandemic, we know things take a while to be delivered.
I have come up with my ultimate guide of eco-friendly stocking stuffers. And, most of these that you can buy online (there is still lots of time for delivery before Christmas).
When shopping this Christmas season, consider these eco-friendly ideas. They have a lower impact on our planet and some of these are nearly zero-waste too!
When compiling my list of eco-friendly stocking stuffers, I considered the material the items are made of as well as the packaging.
I have broken down my list by category to make it easier to browse my list for you to find some eco-friendlier options for common stocking stuffers.
