Following recent news of the BBC and David Attenborough’s initiative to reduce plastic waste, more and more people are paying attention to the impact we are having on our planet. Online gift list provider Prezola is promoting a greener way of living by encouraging couples to make eco-conscious decisions when it comes to their wedding gift list. Do your bit to save the planet from the comfort of home with these tips and ideas for compiling your gift list.

Swap plastic for glass

Make your home a plastic-free zone by only using glass storage bottles, such as these Kinto Dressing Bottles (£16). Encouraging you to ditch the shop-bought plastic bottles and champion your own homemade recipes, the bottles are both reusable and sustainable. Kilner jars are also perfect for this purpose.

Use recycled goods

You won’t believe that this Classic Ausi Cardboard Scrap Light from Graypants (£219) is made from recycled cardboard. Handmade in Holland, this light offers a beautiful centrepiece for any living space and emits an ambient lighting to set the mood.

Create your own compost

Stylish, practical and environmentally purposed, this Typhoon Vintage Copper Compost Caddy (£24.50) allows you to store compostable kitchen waste until ready to be transported to the garden compost heap. The caddy features an easy-to-clean removable plastic liner and double layer filter to prevent escaping odours.

Buy a bag for life

While its primary purpose is for domestic storage, you can also avoid the plastic bag charge when out shopping by choosing a nkuku Braided Hemp Storage Basket/Bag (£49.95). What’s more, the basket is crafted from eco-friendly hemp using age old looms for a traditionally on-trend finish.

Save energy where possible

Control the temperature of your home when out and about with this 3rd-generation Nest Learning Thermostat. After just one week’s use the Nest thermostat learns your preferences to tailor your energy use accordingly and adopts an Eco mode when it senses you’ve left the house. Available in black, silver or copper.
