Eco-Friendly Christmas Gift Ideas

Our Best Ideas for Eco-Friendly Christmas Gifts

Sustainability is becoming an increasingly important topic for lots of people. More and more people want to adopt a more environmentally friendly approach to all aspects of everyday life. This will help stop climate change and also help to prevent us living in a throwaway society. This also especially applies to Christmas time. Gone are the days when people simply gave presents for the sake of giving presents. Gifts should be meaningful and personal and have as little impact on the environment as possible. At ifolor, we offer a whole range of environmentally friendly Christmas gifts, which are perfect for your family and friends.

Tips on how to choose sustainable gifts.

Eco-friendly Christmas Gifts from ifolor

ifolor is aware of its responsibility to protect and preserve the environment. We try and incorporate environmentally friendly business operations from the product development phase all the way through until the end product is finished. We don't think it's a trend for customers to shop more consciously and sustainably, but rather something that should become the norm. With our photo products, we stand for long-lasting quality and endeavour to make the entire production process as environmentally friendly as possible. We also strive to minimise our environmental impact as far as economically and technically possible. Our business operations are climate-neutral and most of our photo products are produced in Switzerland. Here are our best ideas for eco-friendly Christmas gifts:

Eco-Friendly T-shirts as a Christmas Gift

How about an individually designed T-shirt with a photo of your child for a proud grandparent? Or your best memories from your last city break with the girls, for your best friend? Or a great photo of your pet? Our high-quality photo T-shirts not only look fabulous thanks to our first class print quality, but they are also sustainable. The Swiss brand Switcher is known for its fair and environmentally friendly production and the product quality is also first class. Thanks to the 170 g/m2 organic cotton, the T-shirt is particularly durable and you or the person receiving the gift will be able to wear it time and time again. Did you know that organic cotton is not only produced without harmful chemicals, but also requires significantly less water than conventional cotton?

A personalised T-shirt is a very special Christmas gift. You can personalise it and bring a smile to your loved one’s face. You can wear the T-shirt with your favourite photo, which means that this type of gift is also very useful. It is available in seven different sizes for men and women (XS to 3XL) as well as six different sizes for children.

This is a fabulous gift for anyone who would like to have a decorative element with their favourite photo. This product is also environmentally friendly.

Decorate Your Desk with an Environmentally Friendly Photo Flip

Do you want something that is timeless, decorative and will put a smile on your face all year round? Have you got several favourite photos? If so, our photo flip is a great choice!

A photo flip is perfect for family photos for parents or grandparents, unforgettable memories with your best friend, idyllic landscape shots and adventurous holiday memories for your travelling companion or adorable baby photos.

What Does Carbon Neutral Mean?

ifolor is a carbon neutral business. This means that we accurately keep track of the consumption required to manufacture our products and offset the calculated emissions by supporting two climate change projects. In recent years, we have also set ourselves the task of halving our CO₂ emissions caused by waste, chemicals, business trips and electricity consumption during production. The good news is that we have been successful! In the coming years, these emissions are to be continuously reduced. We have had our CO₂ management audited by an independent organisation, Swiss Climate AG, and have been certified as ‘CO₂ neutral’ every year since 2012 and in 2022 for the 11th time. The projects we support are ‘Energy-efficient cookers in Ghana’ and ‘Forest conservation in the Congo Basin’. The energy-efficient cookers in Ghana reduce health risks, create jobs, reduce greenhouse gases, protect forests and biodiversity and massively reduce the consumption of firewood. Supporting the Congo Basin project provides the local population and a variety of rare and endangered animals and plant species with a sustainable livelihood and prevents the destruction of the rainforest in the centre of the Democratic Republic of Congo.
