5 must- have sustainable gifts for your Teen 2022 Edition.

Summer is over and the children are back to school. Here are some of our favorite sustainable gifts any child would be happy to receive.

But before we dive in, let’s highlight how to identify a sustainable gift.

The popular metrics are;

 1- What is the gift made of?

 Biodegradable materials or products that have no carbon footprint are considered eco friendly.

2- Who made the gift? 

 Does the brand implement sustainability within its entire business? In other words, brands who genuinely care about sustainability and enforce it throughout their business falls under this category. E.g GIVOAfrica, PreciousPlastic, Ecobarter, Ecobiz just to mention a few.
