7 Eco-Chic Vegan Gifts

Animal-friendly doesn’t always translate to planet-friendly (ahoy, PVC!), but vegans strive to lead mindful lives based on ethics and compassion, so incorporating environmental stewardship into their ethos is hardly a stretch. For your favorite vegan, we’ve rallied together seven conscious gifts that are as gentle on our big blue marble as they are on our animal brethren.

Farm Sanctuary Necklace by Figs and Ginger

CRUELTY-FREE

From one of our favorite jewelers at Figs & Ginger comes an exclusive necklace for Farm Sanctuary. Based on the animal-rescue organization’s iconic logo, the pendant and chain is crafted from recycled sterling silver and dangles about 9 inches from clasp to pendant.

Smartfish Marigold Flats

HAPPY FEET

These elegant handmade flats from Smartfish come in a cheery marigold hue to fend off the winter doldrums. Classic and timeless, the shoes are built to last, comprising 100 percent hemp uppers, organic bamboo lining, natural latex outsoles, and recycled cork insoles. Besides the absence of potentially hinky chemical adhesives, the stitching also enhances the shoes’ durability.

+ Handmade Marigold Flats $95

Twin Rivers Scarf by Sparrow Nest Knits

TIE ONE ON

Cozier than a cotton scarf yet completely wool-free, Sparrow Nest Knits’ chunky Twin Rivers Scarf comes in a blend of recycled polyester (derived from post-consumer plastic bottles) and acrylic. It’s made to order, with color options ranging from woodsy green to opulent plum.
