15 Sustainable Gifts for Her
A puzzle made up of her favorite feminist powerhouses? And it’s made of 90% post-consumer recycled materials? Truly iconic. Give her this, and they might as well just call you Ruth Bader Giftsburg. (Uncommon Goods, $22)
2. A backpack she can take everywhere
In my opinion, backpacks are the superior bag. Walking around with both my hands free—I always thought it couldn’t get much better. Until it did. I discovered Tiradia and fell in love with their backpacks. They’re sustainably made with cork (which btw is waterproof), and they’re incredibly cute. Trust me, the women in your life will love them as much as I do. (Tiradia, $125-$180)
