Animal testing for cosmetics is STILL happening as we go into 2020! πŸ’‰πŸ Neither the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) nor the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission *require* animal testing for cosmetics or household products. There are sufficient existing safety data as well as in vitro alternatives to make animal testing for these products obsolete. (Source: Leaping Bunny)
.
Therefore it is up to brands and ingredient suppliers to ensure no new animal tests occur during any stage of product development and manufacturing.

Vote with your consumer dollars by choosing to only buy from cruelty-free brands in 2020! ✊🏻 Let’s continue to fight to see a global end to animal testing for cosmetics! ✨

Looking for a stylish vegan winter coat to keep you warm this season? ❄️ Here are some ethical vegan outerwear labels! 🌿 From vegan puffers, parkas, bombers, vests, coats, and jackets for men, women, and kids! πŸ§₯✨
.
What to look out for in an ethical + vegan winter coat:
❄️ Avoid coats filled with down and animal feathers -- instead, these vegan labels use recycled polyester that are made from used bottles and post-consumer recycled content. They're also warmer, lighter, and more breathable than goose-down!
❄️ Read the label to see if the fur-trim is animal-derived or not. -- Don't just assume it's faux fur, it only takes two seconds to check to be sure!
❄️ Ethically-made -- If the price is too good to be true, it probably is. Support vegan labels that care about the people making their clothes just as much as they do about the animals! Are their workers treated fairly, under safe conditions, and paid a living wage?
❄️ Made to Last -- Avoid shopping for a cheap winter coat just to wear a handful of times and to be replaced next year. Choose quality outerwear made with durable materials that were made to last, and even better, check to see if it comes with a warranty! πŸ‘ŒπŸ»

Eco-Friendly Personalized Gift Ideas

This post may contain affiliate links.

There is no greater feeling than opening a present and finding the item was specially made just for you, making it truly a one-of-a-kind gift! That’s why I love to gift custom and personalized products with either the receiver’s name, initials or an inside joke that we share that is engraved, embossed, or stamped on the item.

I find that Etsy is a great place to shop for unique, handmade and personalized gifts that are eco-friendly and thoughtfully-made. In this post, I’m collaborating with Etsy to share with you some of my favourite eco-friendly items that can be personalized for gifting or treating yourself to something special!

Personalized Christmas & Holiday Decor

The holidays are such a special time of the year and to make it even more special, you can personalize some of your holiday decor to include your name, initials, family name, or gift them and include the receiver’s name!

These reusable cotton bags are such a creative alternative to wasteful Christmas crackers. And the fact that they’re personalized make them way better than traditional Christmas crackers. Reuse them next year or the receiver can reuse them all year round to store small items.

Add a special touch to your ornaments this year with this personalized wooden star ornament. The Scandinavian-inspired design is simple and elegant making it the perfect accessory to decorate your cozy home and it can be used year after year!

I love the look and style of these farmhouse Christmas stockings with cozy neutral colors and rich textures. They’re made with 100% linen and canvas lining making them an eco-friendly Christmas tradition. To personalize them, you can add a rustic letter affixed to the wreath and hung from a linen loop that just slips right over the tab of the stocking.


Personalized Bags & Accessories

I’m a sucker for custom bags and accessories. It makes me feel so special that I have this one-of-kind item that was made specially for me.

This quilted velvet personalized cosmetics bag looks and feels luxurious! It’s the perfect accessory to store and organize your everyday essentials. The personalized embroidered initials on the bag itself is so chic and makes it look really expensive, but this cosmetic bag is only $10!

There’s also this personalized matching tote and cosmetic bag set that I adore. The bags are made from cotton canvas making them super lightweight but durable so you can reuse and carry these bags to work or on your travels time after time!

For the men on your gift-giving list, this eco-friendly vegan personalized slim wallet is practical as it is sophisticated and stylish. The wallet is made from apple leather, wood leather, and cupro satin (made from cotton waste). You can add a personalized embossing of the receiver’s initials at no additional cost.


Personalized & Practical Gifts

I like to gift practical gifts where the receiver will get a lot of uses out of them and by personalizing these items with the receiver’s name gurantees they won’t ever lose them!

Gift this chic personalized water bottle that can be reused for any occasion. Customize it with the receiver’s name or initials printed on the bottle for a thoughtful gift exchange.

Traditional Tupperwares are no match compared to this personalized engraved bamboo lunch box. Not only will it carry your lunch but it’s eco-friendly too where the base is made from bamboo fibre and the lid is made from solid natural bamboo which has a pleasant look to it.

I love this wooden mobile phone speaker that can be personalized to include the receiver’s initials or name. It’s made from sustainable reclaimed walnut and has such a unique and interesting finish that’ll have everyone asking about it.


Personalized Gifts for The Little Ones

Kids are given lots of toys this time of year and to make sure yours stand out amongst the rest, personalized toys are the way to go! They also make for some treasured keepsakes.

These personalized princess wooden blocks made with sustainable birch wood make a unique and thoughtful gift for the little sweet princess in your life. They are fully customizable where you can pick any design, phrases, or names to be printed on each block.

I love the idea of a custom-made and personalized Children’s book featuring the special little someone in your life! It’s such a unique, fun, and interactive gift that will be sure to make any child smile.

This wooden, natural hand-crafted baby elephant rattle is a perfect gift for newborns and expecting parents. The rattle can be personalized with baby stats or other short greetings. It’s made with birch wood from EU sustainable forests.


Personalized Stocking Stuffers

Stocking stuffers can become quite wasteful and full of excessive packaging but these small personalized eco-friendly gifts will reduce unnecessary waste and also your consumer footprint overtime.

Reusable straws are so hot right now but check out this set that also includes a personalized straw bag so that the receiver can carry their eco-friendly and reusable straws wherever they go!

Have a super special place to put your words and thoughts or give as a very personal and thoughtful gift this Holiday with these personalized eco-friendly notebooks. Available in 2 sizes and in multiple colors to choose from. The elegant covers are handmade and handpainted with cotton paper from the textile industry’s waste and the pages inside are a lovely thick recycled cartridge paper.

An eco-friendly bamboo toothbrush makes for a perfect gift as we need a new one every 3 months and opting for a plastic-free toothbrush helps to keep plastic out of landfills. So why not personalize it by engraving the receiver’s name on the handle to make it a truly unique gift that they’ll even want to use it every day!

What are some of your favorite items on this list?
