Eco-Friendly Coffee Gifts
Soak it Up Swedish Dishcloths
For anyone who drinks coffee, you’re sure to spill a few grounds or even a dash of coffee on occasion. To make the clean up quick (& more adorable!), Soak it Up Swedish Dishcloths are perfect for all of your spills. One single cloth is equivalent to 1,500 paper towels! The best part of all is that these cloths are 100% biodegradable. And after you’re done wiping up your mess, just stick them in the dishwasher or washing machine to use them again and again.
OXO Reusable Straws with Cleaning Brush (5-piece set)
Iced coffee drinkers will adore these reusable straws from OXO. This 5-piece set includes 4 straws of differing heights and a long bristled brush to thoroughly clean out any gunk from the inside of the straws.
Cheesecloth Bags for Cold Brew
Not only is using a nut milk bag or cheesecloth a cheaper way to make cold brew, but it also makes the brewing process a lot easier. Think of this reusable cloth as a giant tea bag. Simply fill it with coffee grounds, tie it shut, and dunk the bag into a pitcher of filtered water. After it has brewed for the appropriate amount of time (see my cold brew article), pull the entire bag out and voila — you just made an easy, mess-free batch of cold brew!
Emerging Green Wood Coffee Mugs (Set of 2)
Disclosure: We received samples from Emerging Green in order to share our opinion about their products, but this isn’t a sponsored post.
If you know someone who is all about zero waste living, these 100% bamboo mugs from Emerging Green are an excellent eco-friendly option. The manufacturing process for this sustainable material does not create unnecessary or toxic by-products and each mug is accented with a natural finish. In addition, unlike porcelain or ceramic mugs, these mugs are incredibly durable and will not easily crack or break.
