Looking for eco-friendly stocking fillers that will make your loved one's Christmas, whilst not being harmful to the earth? Well, we've created this eco stocking filler gift guide to help you achieve just that and have a #ConsciousChristmas. From beautiful ethical jewellery to locally handmade clothing, here are our five favourite eco-stocking fillers - all available here at Sancho's!
The Sancho's "I am the lion" necklace will remind your loved one of their own unique individuality and inner strength. Not only does this necklace provide strength, it is also eco-friendly and Fair Trade. It is handmade from re-purposed brass material by the Flowering Dessert Project, which provides training and fairly paid work for women from rural communities in Tamil Nadu, Southern India.
Alison Cable Knit and Double Knit Hats
Available in a variety of colours, ready to match any outfit, these double and cable knit hats are a perfect eco stocking filler this winter. Lovingly handmade exclusively for Sancho's from 100% merino wool by a small group of volunteers from Age UK Exeter, the funds raised with the sale of each hat goes towards supporting Age UK Exeter projects.
Give the gift of comfort this Christmas with one of our staple organic cotton camisole tops. The perfect layering piece to keep you warm through the winter months, your gift recipient will get great use out of this camisole for years to come. Made by Assisi Garments, a social enterprise in India where the skilled artisans at Assisi transform Fairtrade and organic cotton fibre into beautiful handmade garments, making this stocking filler is as ethical as it is practical!
The ultimate stocking filler: a gorgeous pair of ethically made earrings. We know it can be difficult to find jewellery that is kind to our planet so we decided to make our own! These earrings were handmade from brass in Peru by Hope Jewellery, a project which provides part-time fairly paid work for women. This has made a significant difference to their household incomes, meaning the women have been able to improve their homes, pay for medical treatment and educate their children, as well as spend more time with their families. Could you find a stocking filler with a better story?
