    6 Clever Gifts for the Sustainable Home

    Earth Day is coming up, and there are plenty of ways to celebrate. From donating money or time to environmental causes to cleaning up litter in your local community, there are so many ways to make this Earth Day an impactful one. At Blackstone’s of Beacon Hill, we like to make Earth Day an everyday thing, and we think you should too. That’s why we’ve made this list of 6 sustainable gifts to give to your loved ones. Save this list for birthdays, holidays, or even a special Earth Day surprise for those you care about most. 

    Gifts for the Eco-Conscious Cook

    #1: Smithey Ironware Company’s No. 11 Skillet

    Sustainable kitchenware is all about durability and versatility (link to sustainability blog), and that’s what Smithey does best. Made with recycled American iron, all of Smithey’s heirloom-quality pieces are made to last generations, but their No. 11 Skillet takes things a step further with versatility. With a uniquely deep shape and included glass lid, this skillet can be used to brown meats, saute veggies, steam, simmer, braise, pan fry, or even bake a casserole. Say all of that three times fast. 

    #2: Staub’s 3-Piece Rectangular Baking Dish Set

    The most sustainable choices are the ones that help you purchase less, and Staub’s 3-Piece Baking Dish Set will be the last you’ll ever have to buy. This versatile set includes 3 pieces for every dish you can dream up, with a beautiful, scratch-resistant finish that’ll keep you satisfied for years to come. What’s more, Staub’s parent company, Zwilling, engages in a number of eco-friendly practices that set them apart. 

    #3: Bambu’s Give It a Rest Spoons

    On the topic of versatility, nobody’s doing it quite like Bambu. Their Give It a Rest Spoons feature a small, patented bump that keeps them from touching the counter when set down, removing the need for a spoon rest. A woman-owned, certified B-corp, Bambu makes their spoons using USDA certified organic bamboo, an incredibly eco-friendly material that’s biodegradable and compostable.

    Gifts for the Eco-Conscious Home

    #4: Ekelund’s Table Runners and Hand Towels

    Brands like Ekelund make it easy to make sustainable choices. Their beautifully designed table runners and hand towels are made using Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) certified, 100% organic cotton that offers the highest quality with a big environmental impact. What’s more, Ekelund’s factory in Horred, Sweden operates under environmental policies that minimize waste and emissions, so you can rest easy that a purchase from Ekelund is an investment in the future.

     

    #5: J.K. Adams’s Maple Artisan Serving Board

    J.K. Adams crafts artisanal boards that are as beautiful as they are sustainable. Made using sustainably harvested North American hardwood and featuring illustrations from Vermont artisan Laural Zindel, this Maple Artisan Serving Board is the perfect eco-friendly gift for that one friend who makes killer charcuterie boards. 

    #6: Friendsheep’s Eco Dryer Balls

    We all have that one friend who uses way too many dryer sheets. These eco-friendly dryer balls will help them eliminate chemicals from their laundry for good. Friendsheep’s products are handmade by Nepalese artisans using eco-friendly, plastic-free, 100% cruelty free New Zealand wool and colored with azo-free dyes. These can be thrown in during the dry cycle to replace fabric softener and dryer sheets, naturally softening clothes and reducing dry time.
