8 Non-toxic, Organic Stocking Stuffers for the Whole Family

Stocking stuffers are an underrated way to give thoughtful, unique gifts - for all ages! Check out our favorite sustainable stocking stuffers from brands that keep both the recipient and the planet in mind.

Brightland ~ This female-founded brand crafts cold-pressed olive oils, vinegars, and honeys infused with various herbs. Perfect for the hostess in your life! All of their products are made by family farmers and makers local to California. The Mini Artist Series features mini bottles of olive oils infused with peppers, garlic, lemon, and basil, packaged in labels designed in collaboration with artists from NY, CA, and Amsterdam. So much personality in this unique stocking stuffer!

Bite ~ Bite is on a mission to keep your teeth clean - while keeping the plastics found in common toothpaste tubes out of landfills and oceans. The female-founded brand has designed vegan toothpaste bits (with or without fluoride), along with plastic-free oral care items including a bamboo toothbrush and stainless steel tongue scraper. Gift The Stocking Stuffer set and watch their holiday (and teeth) shine!

Spring & Mulberry Chocolate ~ Send a little sweetness - in the form of Spring & Mulberry chocolate. This female-founded brand knows how to satisfy your sweet tooth with healthy and flavor-rich chocolates inspired by global markets. Their curations are plant-based, have no added sugar, and many are allergen compatible. The Discovery Collection is a perfect stocking stuffer, complete with 5 chocolate bars to enjoy from mixed berry to medjool date, pecan, and himalayan salt. Who wouldn’t want a little decadence in their stocking?

Beekeeper’s Naturals ~ Along with the cold weather (and big holiday gatherings) comes the tests to our immune system - especially for kids. Fret not, Beekeeper’s Naturals is harnessing the natural powers of bees to help combat colds and allergies naturally. The Kid’s Throat Soothing Lollipops are formulated with Propolis Extract, Vitamin D, Zinc, and Wildflower Honey to soothe scratchy throats and support immune systems - all in a form that kids love! They’ll love the taste, while you’ll love that it is keeping them healthy.

Package Free ~ The same products you use daily, made sustainable. Package Free offers clean-choice alternatives to household items from kitchen and food storage to laundry and cleaning, as well as beauty products. All items use zero or minimal packaging and eliminate single-use plastics (who doesn’t love that?!). Check out their Dryer Balls as the stocking stuffer for the sustainable clotheshorse in your life!

Osea Malibu ~ Give the gift of skincare from the sea with Osea Malibu. From a family trust in the powers of the ocean for over 100 years comes the variety of formulations meant to combat aging, increase hydration, cleanse, and protect the body. The Sea Glow Starter Set is perfect for her stocking, a 5 piece set meant to make the skin glow - complete with body oil, mineral cleaners, anti-aging serums, and ultimate hydration cream.

Stasher ~ Stasher designs reusable bags to replace single-use plastic. From snacks to sandwiches to storing fruits and veggies, Stasher bags are available in all sizes for your food packing and storing needs. When you shop Stasher, a portion of sales will be sent to high-impact nonprofits working to protect our oceans. Gift the 3-Pack, complete with their best-selling 2-cup bowl, snack and sandwich bags, wrapped in their reusable drawstring bag. A fun and functional stocking stuffer!

To Dye For by Alden Wicker ~ Gift the book on everyone’s wish list this year - To Dye For: How Toxic Fashion Is Making Us Sick--and How We Can Fight Back. Award-winning journalist Alden Wicker dives deep into the fashion industry, exposing the true cost of the toxic, largely unregulated chemicals found on most clothing today. This gift will be so good that they’ll start reading right then and there - and may even finish by dessert.
