Looking for the best eco friendly gifts for women? These are the tested and approved gift ideas for the woman in your life who loves Mother Earth.

When you’re shopping for a woman in your life that is committed to sustainability (may that woman is you!) it can be difficult to find items that pass the test.

There are tons of things to consider when shopping for eco-friendly gifts. Are the materials organic or biodegradable? Is the piece going to last a long time? Is the marketing of this item just greenwashing?

(Maybe you don’t even know what I’m talking about and just want me to get the gift ideas!)

Luckily, you don’t need to sort this all out yourself. We’ve pulled together our favorite eco friendly gifts for women, that will be sure to have her exclaim, “How did you know?!”
