Sustainable Father's Day Gift Ideas

Pepper Leaf Collaboration

We’ve paired with our good friends at Pepper Leaf to offer some much needed reprieve to friends, family and customers in Melbourne and surrounding suburbs. For a limited time only, all Pepper Leaf deliveries in the greater Melbourne area will come with a free roll of Pure Planet Club toilet tissue. Pepper Leaf is an Aussie owned business that offers personalised food deliveries to your door (they even offer a vegetarian box!). For a limited time only you can get an extra meal free with each of your first 4 boxes, we strongly recommend you check them out. Stay strong Melbournites, we’re in this together!

If you’re trying to keep up the good work after Plastic-Free July, we’ve got some great ideas on our blog this month with 10 simple swaps that will green up your bathroom routine in no time.
1 - Buy him an indoor plant.
Plants have a positive effect on the environment and will green up Dad’s working space. Try aloe vera, which removes chemicals from the air, mother-in-law’s tongue or peace lilies, for their air-purifying properties, or ferns, which help increase air humidity.

2 - Get him a re-usable mug or water bottle.
If your Dad is a coffee lover, buy him a durable stainless steel or glass reusable mug. If he likes to exercise, a reusable water bottle will save him money and help save the planet at the same time.

3 - Make him a card.
Millions of tonnes of greeting cards and wrapping paper end up in landfill every year, so to show Dad you care, make him a card or buy one that’s recyclable and made with recycled or sustainably sourced paper.

4 - Treat him to an environmentally friendly tipple.
There’s a huge range of sustainable craft beers and wines on the market currently, so why not treat Dad to a case of his favourite drinks? Mountain Goat, Stone & Wood and 4 Pines are breweries that are committed to protecting the environment and giving back to the community. Tamburlaine in the Hunter Valley produces sustainable, organic and vegan-friendly wines.

5 - Give him a traditional razor.
If he’s shaving with disposable razors, invest in an old-school traditional safety razor. They’re super stylish, look great in the bathroom and will last a lifetime.
