Eco-Friendly Gift Ideas Downtown Victoria


Zero Waste Emporium


The great thing about the Zero Waste Emporium is they have made the shopping experience easier than ever! As its produces, dry bulk, and personal care products are mainly focused at the Zero Waste Emporium, we recommend a gift card! This way, the individual is able to take full advantage of what they need! For example, they will be able to bring their reusable containers for product refills of their liking, thus eliminating any packaging waste.

i.O.N Clothing


Sustainable clothing is always a safe option when wondering what gifts to buy. i.O.N Clothing has a Vancouver Island Green Business Certificate and they pride themselves in great quality clothing that will last! Beyond their clothing is a great array of home goods! From eco-friendly toothbrushes and toothpaste all the way to beeswax food wrap. These types of gifts for a sustainably-minded individual are always a great buy! But of course, when in doubt a gift card is great as well!

Food Eco District


This collection of restaurants have a strong commitment to reducing their impact as well as are all certified VIGBP! Examples are Zambri’s, Habit Coffee, Big Wheel Burger, and so much more! If the person in your life is also food-conscious when it comes to sustainability, this is perfect! Again when in doubt, any gift certificates to these locations allow more flexibility for the recipient to enjoy a large selection of their liking!
