Ecotopia: Unique Gifts for the Eco-Conscious Shopper {Giveaway}

Ecotopia For Eco Conscious Gifts

Thank you to Ecotopia for sponsoring this giveaway.

When it comes to gift-giving, I’m always looking for something unique. And preferably hand crafted. And safe of course. And eco-friendly too. All that can be a tall order – and I often end up spending a lot of time searching for a gift that meets all my requirements.

Just in time for the holiday shopping season – I’d like to introduce you to my newest blog sponsor – Ecotopia – a company that specializes in just those unique, handmade, eco-conscious products I’m talking about.

Ecotopia logo

Ecotopia was born out of a vision to create a shopping experience with true transparency – one where you can learn details about who made the product, where and how they made it, and why it is a truly eco-friendly purchase that you can feel great about.

Ecotopia carries a wide range of products, from home goods and cleaning products, to personal care, baby gifts and toys, as well as jewelry and accessories. The majority of products come from small, independent artists but you’ll find some trusted larger brands as well. Every brand is vetted for their sustainable sourcing and packaging, fair hiring and labor practices and overall commitment to creating awesome earth-friendly products.

Ecotopia Creations

The Ecotopia brand began with an assortment of handmade products designed to reduce paper and plastic waste, sold at farmer’s markets and festivals. The idea was to help us replace those “convenience” items like paper towels, wet wipes and plastic baggies with durable, washable, reusable items instead.

Ecotopia UnPaper Towels

My favorite product is roll of reusable towels, called UnPaper Towels. Made with high quality quilter’s cotton and backed with cotton terry cloth, they are super absorbent and I love that they snap together into a roll, like their disposable counterpart.

Ecotopia Bamboo Wipes

The Ecotopia Creations line also includes reusable wipes, snack & sandwich bags and thread-embroidered tea towels.

Artisan made goods

Ecotopia has clearly put a lot of effort into finding independent artists and craftspeople who make really great earth-friendly products. Here are just a few examples, but check out the Featured Artisans section for more!

Wool dryer balls

Wool Dryer Balls – These 100% wool balls will reduce drying time and static cling. Made in the USA from locally harvested wool.

Recycled glass and pottery necklace

Recycled Glass & Pottery Necklace – Each piece is individually crafted from salvaged glass and set in kiln-fired pottery. This one is on my wish list!

Handmade cotton lunch bag

Handcrafted Insulated Lunch Bag – Made in the USA with brightly colored cotton fabric and a layer of insulation to keep contents warm or cool.

How to Choose an Indoor Compost Bucket

It was time. The trusty, green, plastic compost bucket that lived under my sink for many years had to go.

Even though my plastic bucket held up for many years, … [Continue reading]
