This Christmas, gift mindfully with eco-friendly stocking fillers for the whole family! Whether the one on your gift list is a fair trade coffee drinker, sustainable cook, zero waster, or clean beauty lover, you’ll find plenty of ethically and sustainably-made gifts for everyone on this list. We even have a section for the kids at the bottom of this guide!
Note that this guide includes partners and affiliates. As always, all brands meet high standards for ethics and sustainability and are brands I truly love!
Food & Drink Stocking Fillers
If your gift recipient is more of a tea kind of person, Yerba Mate’s fair trade and organic tea will be a thoughtful choice. The B-Corp certified company’s tea is certified by Fair for Life for ethical sourcing and by the new Regenerative Organic Certification for their climate positive farming practices.
I’ve tried a lot of fair trade chocolates, but none have matched up to Alter Eco! This brand has tons of flavors — from brown butter to coconut toffee — for a variety of tastebuds. Can’t decide which flavor? Try their bar bundle for a little more than $35.
Price: $3.99/bar or $35.99 for a bar bundle
Committed to decolonizing the spice trade, Diaspora Co. — a woman of color-owned business — cuts the middlemen and purchases their single-origin spices directly from the farmers that produced them. This model puts more money in the hands of farmers, gives Diaspora Co. more transparency into their supply chain, and gives shoppers the freshest, richest flavors possible.
Price: from $10
I mean can you think of a more appropriate eco-friendly stocking filler than organic hot chocolate mix? Equal Exchange is a worker-owned company that sources their ingredients organically, ethically, and often, directly.
Price: $6.79 for one; $32 for a 6-pack
Stasher’s silicone bags are one of my favorite low waste swaps! They’re durable, versatile, and will save your gift recipient a whole lot of money in the long-run from buying single-use plastic baggies.
Price: $11.99; sets also available
10. Beeswax Wraps
Beeswax wraps are another low-waste food storage essential you can put in their stockings this year! Made from all-natural beeswax, organic cotton, and organic jojoba oil, they can feel good about wrapping around their leftovers or freshly baked treats.
Bath & Body Stocking Fillers
‘Tis the season for chapped, cracked lips. Thankfully, Zambeezi’s flavorful lip balms are here to soothe even the driest lips with their nourishing organic and fair trade oils and beeswax. And, at under $15, this lip balm variety pack is a perfect eco-friendly gift for everyone’s stocking.
The Sustainable Change’s natural body soap bars are a low waste luxury! The bars — which come in scents like almond, sandalwood, and vetiver patchouli — are a sustainably-sourced self-care gift for anyone on your list. The soaps from this WOC-owned small business would also pair perfectly with a set of natural loofahs.
Price: $6.99 – $8.99

14. Shea Body Butter
Formulated to moisturize, tone, and rejuvenate the skin, Hanahana Beauty’s shea body butter is the ultimate daily luxury. And with natural, calming scents like vanilla lavender, eucalyptus, and lemongrass, lathering on this shea butter will definitely become part of their daily ritual. Hanahana is a Black woman-owned business.
Lotion is a must-have-on-hand kind of essential as the cooler, drier air comes in. But most lotion — even the natural, clean, organic ones — come in single-use plastic bottles! Plaine Products is solving this dilemma with their zero waste body lotion that comes in a reusable aluminum bottle that can be sent back to be cleaned and refilled endlessly!
There are a lot of reasons to love bamboo toothbrushes: they’re made from a natural and highly renewable resource, they’re compostable, they reduce the demand for plastic, and, well, they’re quite aesthetically pleasing! Eco Serein’s bamboo toothbrush also comes with a bamboo travel carrying case for easy storage and transport.

Crafted out of leftover fabric scraps of naturally colored organic cotton, Danu Organic’s headband is about as earth-friendly as it gets. The headband is adjustable, making it an easy-to-gift sustainable stocking stuffer for anyone in the family.
For eco-friendy stocking stuffers that give back, look no further than Conscious Step. The brand creates Fairtrade and GOTS-certified socks and sock sets that each support a different cause. $1 from each pair sold goes to a nonprofit. The money from these Breast Cancer Prevention socks goes to Keep A Breast.
Price: $34.99 for 3

Big enough to hold all the essentials but small enough to transport with ease, The Tote Project’s organic cotton pouches are the goldilocks of carry-alls. Each pouch is handmade by artisans in a Fair Trade-certified factory in West Bengal, India by women who have escaped the sex trade.
