Christmas is just around the corner. You are wondering how you can give your loved one an eco friendly present? There are many ways to do this: choose ecological products as far as possible, spend time with your loved ones, donate instead of giving, or simply make something yourself or give something to do yourself (upcycling).
We have put together a few ideas from our range and beyond for you.
Tip 1: DIY clothes rail Walden - 15€
Why buy a new product when you can recycle something? For example, you can simply build a clothes rail with an old branch and a few ropes and hooks. This will give you a sustainable and unique home accessory.
With the DIY set Walden for 15€ you have a beautiful gift, in which the recipient can realize himself handcrafted. A building instruction is included, but you can also download it for free from our website.
We also have a lot more DIY instructions and sets - from concrete lamps to wine crate racks. Have a look:
Tip 2: Organic children's furniture child seat group Just - 215€
A great gift tip for parents or grandparents is the growing child seat group Just.
The seating group is available in 5 bright colours and three heights. The children grow bigger and the seating group grows with them. Both the table and the chair can be converted into three different heights. In addition, the table can be painted with chalk and is a lot of fun even for the little ones.
We at ekomia always use only certified solid wood and organic paints. The fact that the seating group is included in the design means that you can extend the service life of your furniture compared to conventional products.
Tip 3: Planting trees - variable price
For every order with ekomia we plant a tree. We do this together with the organization Plant For the Planet. The organization, which emerged from a student initiative, has set itself the goal of planting 1000 billion trees. Because this amount of trees in the world could bind a quarter of the CO2 emissions caused by humans. More than 15 billion trees have already been planted in Malaysia, Brazil and Mexico.
At Plant-for-the-Planet you can also create a tree voucher for any amount and give it away. 1€ = 1 tree.
An environmentally friendly Christmas season wishes you
Your ekomia team
