Many sustainably-minded shoppers struggle with the consumerism that surrounds the holidays. On the one hand, giving and receiving gifts is part of what makes this time of year so special. On the other hand, all the energy and resources that go into producing, packaging, and wrapping gifts makes us question the morality of it all.
This holiday season, we’re making sure you don’t have to choose between people and planet. To help prevent your stocking stuffers from turning into landfill stuffers, we at ReGrained have compiled the perfect gift-guide for people and planet. Choose from our selection of eco-friendly, upcycled products.
The best part: You can find all these gifts online. No more Mariah Carey Christmas hits blaring in your ear while you’re upside-down in a department store sale bin.
First, stocking stuffers from brands we love.

At ReGrained, we’re big fans of Thanksgiving. Sure, time with family and friends is nice, but it’s all the edible upcycling that really gets us in the spirit! From green bean casserole & stuffing sandwiches to homemade turkey stock, the end of your Thanksgiving meal is the beginning of many a leftovers masterpiece. But just in case you’re fresh out of creativity from your show-stopping Turkey Day dish, we’ve asked ReGrained’s very own Commander-in-Chef, Phil Saneski, to do that part for you.
