Some people avoid it, some people want to celebrate it all MONTH long. Yup, you guessed it. Birthdays! Whether it’s your own birthday or someone you love, we have just the list of curated products from our marketplace to wow! Whether a nature-lover or a fashion fanatic, they’ll be sure to have a very special day, knowing their environmental impact is light! Read on to see what we’ve come up with!


Botanicals Cork Yoga Mat

The perfect addition to any novice yogi or studio lover looking to add a little flair into their practice is the Botanicals Cork Yoga Mat from Scoria! Anti-microbial with a rubber backing, this mat is perfect for anyone who can’t get enough of hot yoga sessions or power vinyasa classes that make other mats slip and slide. The cork is also sustainably harvested in Portugal and is incredibly sustainable — no tree cutting required! Plus, Scoria partners with Right to Play by donating a portion of their proceeds to empowering Indigenous youth in Canada.

Costa Wayfarer Recycled Polarized Sunglasses

The ideal gift for anyone looking to channel their inner Audrey Hepburn is the Costa Wayfarer Recycled Polarized Sunglasses from Parafina. Not only wildly stylish but these sunglasses are also made with recycled tires and rPET, all without compromising 100% UVA/UVB protection. Each pair also comes with a recycled nylon carrying pouch to keep these lovelies protected anywhere you go!

Mountain Vista Quilted Blanket

Whether going on a weekend camping trip or picnicking on a sunny afternoon, the Mountain Vista Quilted Blanket from United By Blue is the perfect carry-on. Not only is the quilt lightweight, but it also comes in a compact carrying pouch for on-the-go traveling. Made with recycled polyester and bison-shield filling, this quilt not only diverts plastic from landfills but uses an often-discarded material in the ranching industry that would otherwise be tossed aside as well. Not only that, but each purchase removes 1 pound of trash from our oceans and waterways!

Terracotta Planter Set

The Terracotta Planter Set from Modern Sprout is the perfect gift for any beginner gardener because it comes with everything you need! Equipped with an internal hydroponic system and specially offered with the hardiest plants (Aloe or Prickly Pear Cactus), there’s no need to worry about over-watering or neglect with these babies! The beautiful terracotta pot is also perfect for any windowsill or coffee table, offering a little style to any space in your home.

Sophie the Giraffe Birthday Party Pack

What better gift for a child than a birthday pack with all they need to make the occasion special? Look no further than the Sofie la Girafe Birthday Party Pack. Ready to go for a party of 12, this birthday set comes with a crown, birthday banner, cupcake decorations, and more, all made with the planet in mind. Celebrating a kid’s birthday party has never been easier. All you’ll need to do is prepare the cake and grab the drinks, and you’re all good to go!

Lavender Calendula Organic Skin Care Bundle

A travel-friendly and delightful gift is the Lavender Calendula Organic Skin Care Bundle from Moon Valley Organics. Perfect for cleansing and nourishing the skin, this bundle comes with a Lavender Calendula Cold Process Organic Soap Bar for gentle cleansing, an Organic Vanilla Lemon Lotion Bar for hydration, and a Vanilla Lemon Beeswax Lip Balm for everyday lip care. Plus, the bag is 100% compostable and the ingredients themselves are all biodegradable so any pesky remaining soap bits can be easily (and sustainably) discarded!

The Self Care Planner

Regardless of what time of the year it is, a little self-care should always be welcomed. With The Self Care Planner from Simple Self, the birthday recipient can be ready for daily rejuvenation and reflection, knowing their eco values aren’t compromised. This planner includes sections to track your meals, water intake, mood, sleep, and exercise routine. Printed on FSC-certified paper and protected with a linen cover, this planner is the perfect sustainable staple to any on-the-go professional or luxury enthusiast who likes to add a little self-love into their day-to-day.
