For the next 12 days we’ll be posting a zero waste Christmas present idea to help you jingle-all-the-way to the big day. Check back in with our post everyday to see what we add.

kukena candles £10-£12
The blurb: what a loverly bunch of coconuts! These quirky candles are made just down the road in Newquay, using ethically sourced, high quality natural, sustainable ingredients.
Perfect for: creating ambience, extending the holiday, hygge homes, power-cuts 😉
Why we love them: Not only do they look and smell shamazing, they’re also made using soy wax – a natural and sustainable alternative to nasty polluting paraffin typically used to make candles.
Soy burns 50% slower than paraffin, which means more bang for your buck. And they’re vegan and biodegradeable. You can even reuse the containser by simply washing in warm soapy water.

Why we love it: Informative, practical and positive, this guide for children is written by Bude’s own Martin Dorey, anti-plastic campaigner and author of the bestselling No. More. Plastic. Not only is Martin a regular customer of ReFill shop Bude, he’s also the founder of the Beach Clean Network and the #2minutebeachclean movement!

with this stylish, practical bottle that keeps water cold for up to 24 hours (and hot for 12).

BEE BOMBS - £8
The blurb: Beebombs are a mix of 18 British wildflower seeds, fine, sifted soil and locally sourced clay. The seeds are native species and designated by the Royal Horticultural Society as “Perfect for Pollinators”

MUTINY LARGE SHAVING SET - £30
The blurb: This set contains a traditional razor that will last years and give a close, smooth shave. It’s better for your skin than disposable razors, better for your bank balance (as replaceable blades are very inexpensive) and better for the environment.
The set also contains a synthetic shaving brush that helps exfoliate your skin and soften your stubble ready for the shave. No animals were harmed in the making.
Also included is a handmade (using the traditional cold process) ‘Black Pearl’ Rosemary & Lime Shaving soap, made from 100% natural ingredients.
