All of their decadent creations are made using fair-trade and local ingredients with a focus on sustainability and purity of ingredients.

The majority of their ingredients (and 100% of any and all chocolates they use) are certified organic. Those ingredients that are not are thoroughly vetted and certified non-GMO, as well as being soy- and corn syrup-free; and they are as local as possible. 

Choose from vegan chocolate, hand-rolled truffles, and yummy caramels. A small batch company based in Vermont, they ship all their chocolate in environmentally friendly packaging.

Based in Chino, California Andy Anand Chocolates offers mouthwatering chocolates, cakes, and confectionery. Trust us, it will be hard to choose! Want to eat chocolate and do good? Andy Anand donates 15% of its profits to run free schools and nonprofit activities.

"With a few meters of fabric and no sewing skills, I FaceTimed my dad for help to change these into reusable bags, wipes, and towels.

You can never go wrong when you put a ring on it, even better if it's an ethical ring! Let's face it, ethical jewelry is a beautiful eco-friendly gift to get and Esty has so many amazing artisans creating one-of-a-kind pieces made using recycled and salvaged metals and gems.

Praxis Jewelry’s lavish collection of refined rustic jewelry is simply gorgeous! Their lovely collection includes necklaces, earrings, rings, and bracelets all made from recycled silver, gold, brass, and platinum.

We are in love with their hand-hammered Cuff Bracelets, you can personalize these by adding cute little love messages that they can engrave onto the bracelets. These are truly one of the best sustainable Etsy gifts.

Allison and her three rescued Great Danes create these stunning pieces whilst they "strive to create an environmentally low-impact business and each piece is created with reclaimed precious metals and ethically sourced stones."

If you are looking for something truly unique then you must check out SmartGlassKP. They make the most beautiful rings, necklaces, and earing from glass bottles they salvaged from dumpsters.

7. Plantable Cards

Want to send someone a handwritten love letter? How Romantic is that! Traditional gift cards are unfortunately tied to deforestation but you can avoid all of that by picking a plantable card. It's one of our top picks for sustainable gifts from Etsy.

WEMadeBoutique makes seed paper cards for all your gifting occasions. Their plantable handmade recycled seed paper Valentine's Day cards featuring red & black stamped heart designs - perfect to use as your Valentine's cards, or the gift itself! Instead of throwing them away- plant the whole card in the garden come Spring!

All cards contain wildflower seeds containing a mix to attract pollinators like butterflies and hummingbirds. For best results, dampen and tear the paper. Press the pieces of paper into the soil in a sunny area during the early spring.

Marissa Kay Apothecary is another fav. Owner Mariss says " I offer to you Artisanal Handcrafted Botanical Self Care Goods. We source as many of the herbs as we can from our own garden. My work is my Prayer and Meditation. Every element of production is Infused with Love and Peace for your Whole-Self."

These unique eco-friendly Etsy gift cards are handmade and a percentage of every purchase goes to promoting women in the sciences and supporting the environment, especially the bees, other pollinators, and the coral reefs!

These cards are sure to make your gift wrapping way more eco!
