Christmas is just around the corner and it’s an exciting time of year. Although each year there’s lots of gifts that go unwanted and in turn end up being thrown away. This adds to the problems with landfill waste and the worrying climate crisis. This year, we at Lenguaventura want to encourage our summer campers to be a little more thoughtful and opt for a more sustainable gift this Christmas. Discover our top sustainable gifts below!
We simply love these boy’s swim shorts from Naeco which aren’t just practical and comfortable. They’re kind to our planet too. Naeco makes all of its swim shorts from 100% recycled ocean plastic. This helps to put our plastic pollution to good use. The endangered tailored swim shorts raise awareness for the world’s most threatened sea life as the shorts feature images of the 10 most endangered species that live in our oceans. Check out Naeco’s swim shorts.
There’s no fashion item more versatile than a pair of jeans. When it comes to sustainable fashion we think pieces that you can wear over and over again are the best choice. Which is why we love Volcom. These jeans are the best as they are unisex and suit all body types. The best bit though..? Volcom’s jeans feature enzyme and ozone water-saving techniques in their manufacturing which saves more than three gallons of water per jean, compared to conventional wash techniques. Both stylish and sustainable! Discover Volcom’s jeans.
Smarten up your phone this Christmas with one of Tobias Illustrations’ sustainable wooden phone covers. Each phone case features an intricate design by the British artist. The best bit is for each one sold, a new tree is planted. The phone cases are available for a range of today’s most popular mobile phones. Check out the designs here.
When it comes to sneakers, Veja is our-go-to brand. Veja works with a Brazilian NGO to produce all of its sustainable and ethical sneakers which brings support to the organic cotton farming families. Check out the ESPLAR sneakers which are our favourite style.
If you’d like to give back this Christmas then why not adopt an animal from WWF? You’ll receive regular updates about your adopted endangered animal. And there’s loads of animals you can help support including: penguins, dolphins, polar bears, turtles and elephants. Plus, you can choose to receive a cuddly toy to represent your adopted animal which will be the cutest gift under the Christmas tree! Save a life and help to create a more sustainable planet.
