We all know that Christmas is a time of indulgence – but with a few small changes we can easily turn black Friday into a better shade of green!

Take a look at our top Christmas gift ideas for your friends and family – get inspired and get creative!



Not only are games and toys a great way of engaging people with the environment, they are also a fantastic carbon free way of having fun. Have a look at some ideas below:

  • Fun eco science activities for kids
  • Board games - check out this wonderful limited edition 
    National Trust Monopoly board (where you may notice a familiar energy company makes an appearance)


Climate change and sustainability can be tough topics - but the right book can give better comprehension and be the start of inspiration for some. We have a variety of picks for all ages and tastes!


Whether it’s a nice long bath or a weekend away, there is no better gift than one that provides relaxation. Take a look at a few of these ideas that are more ‘foot massage’ than ‘carbon footprint’…


Buying vintage is a great antidote to our throwaway culture – vintage clothes, classic records and upcycled furniture make unique and stylish gifts that stop us being wasteful – so get hunting!


What sort of a Christmas would it be without some delectable delights? Have a look at some of these tasty gift ideas!

6. Ethical Membership

Why not buy family and friends membership to an ethical company, charity or organisation of their choice? ‘Friends of the Earth’ and ‘Greenpeace’ are just a few possible options.


It might not be the first thing that comes to mind as a gift idea – but one of our customers recently asked their friends and family to switch their energy supplier to Good Energy as their Christmas gift. What a wonderful idea, and it couldn’t be more simple!
