This Valentine's Day make your gift extra special by shopping for conscious, ethical, and sustainable products that are also super functional for any outdoor adventures! We have curated a list of our top five eco-friendly, ethical, and sustainable gift ideas. Have a look!

1. Tea

Tea is the perfect gift to ensure that your loved one is feeling warm and relaxed inside and out while they are sitting by a campfire in the backcountry. Our favourite pick were these all-natural, ethically sourced artisanal blends made by Tease Tea. They come in biodegradable tea bags and recycled packaging, which will help reduce waste in the outdoors. Tease Tea also has a Valentine’s Day collection with delectable flavours at great discounts.

2. Phone Case

We are sure you spend lots of time and likes on those aesthetic Instagram pictures that your friends and family upload of their hiking expeditions. And we all know how invaluable our phones are when it comes to navigating in the outdoors in addition to clicking those photographs. This Valentine’s Day you can enable your loved ones to continue their outdoor adventures safely by gifting them a durable phone case so that their expensive and fragile smartphones remain undamaged. Pela Case offers the world’s first 100% compostable and eco-friendly cases that your special ones will totally appreciate!

3. Journal

It is always very satisfying when one has hiked up a challenging trail or has encountered a beautiful sunset after a long scramble. What better way to capture those memories and moments than journaling about it! Canadian companies like Ecopaper and Ecojot offer tree-free paper journals and 100% post-consumer recycled journals with designs made with vegetable ink. You can purchase their journals for your friends that love to doodle and write about their outdoor ventures.
