Single-use plastic items are harmful to the environment and cause enormous amounts of trash that are polluting the oceans and our land. The good news is that many innovative companies are designing portable cutlery, straws, and water bottles that are sustainable and reusable.
We love to use straws, but plastic straws can be destructive to animal life and contribute to the pollution problem on our planet. You can still sip your favorite drink from a straw, just use a reusable straw. These are made from stainless steel, glass, silicone, and bamboo and are reusable time and time again. There are many styles and designs of reusable straws and most come with a cleaning brush.
Having disposable plastic forks, spoons, and knives are very convenient, yet they end up in the landfill, beaches, and oceans. Portable bamboo cutlery is stylish and comes with a travel bag, that can easily slip into your purse or bag so you always have them with you.
BPA-Free Water Bottles:
Single-use water bottles should never be used as they are full of harmful toxins and pollute our planet. In addition, BPA’s are hazardous to your health. Thankfully there are many companies that make BPA-free water bottles and there are many styles and materials to choose from. Glass and stainless steel bottles are readily available and the water stored in them tastes great and is not dangerous.
Exercise and Fitness:
Giving the gift of fitness is one of the healthiest presents to share with those you love. Having the right equipment, tools, and supplements can help to inspire people to exercise and keep their fitness levels up to par.
There are so many activity trackers available that it seems everyone should have one. You can choose simple ones that count your steps and remind you to exercise or choose one that is made for elite athletes who are monitoring their performance levels.
Yoga Studio Memberships:
Giving a year’s membership to a local yoga studio may help to gently push someone you love to head to the studio to properly learn the fundamentals of yoga in a safe environment. Choose different levels and styles depending on their fitness level.
Sometimes we need a bit of a boost to help boost our athletic performance levels. The Isagenix line of AMPED products are naturally formulated supplements that are easy to use. They help to improve athletic performance, assist in post-workout recovery, and help with mental clarity and focus. For those just starting out in a workout regime, give them a canister of AMPED Recover to help with quick recovery from sore muscles. For the elite athlete, give them a gift basket with the entire line of AMPED products.
Resistance Bands and Exercise Ball:
To create a simple home gym, all you need are resistance bands and an exercise ball. This is a thoughtful gift for someone who enjoys working out at home.
Health and Well Being
In our hectic lives we so rarely give ourselves time to relax and practice self-care. Give your loved ones presents that show and inspire them to take care of themselves and to show how much you love and care about them.
