Being immersed in technology is quickly becoming the new normal throughout the globe. Unfortunately, not all tech gadgets and accessories are sustainable. So we put together a list of our top 10 sustainable tech gadget and accessory gift ideas to keep your friends and family trendy and eco-friendly this holiday season.


A Good Mobile Case iPhone X, XS

Price:

$42

Our Take:

This cute phone case comes in 31 different styles and is available in similar styles for different phone models. It is made in Sweden out of the byproduct of organic linseed plants. The farmer gives the excess to a small factory nearby who convert it into pellets. These pellets then make their way to another factory and are turned into cases. The prints are all added by hand using organic paint. After the customer, or in this case, the gift-receiver, is done using the case, the certified B-Corporation, A Good Company encourages them to return their case so they can pass it onto someone else or simply plant it in their yard as it is 100% biodegradable!


Laptop Sleeve

Price:

$49

Our Take:

This laptop sleeve is the perfect gift for anyone looking for quality, long-lasting protection for their laptop. It is made out of recycled 100% PET bottles, is waterproof, and contains a magnetic closure on top that allows them to simply slide in your laptop and close it with one hand. Bellroy is a certified B-Corporation that works to ensure responsible business practices.


Patagonia Tres Backpack

Price:

$129

Our Take:

This laptop bag is perfect for an on-the-go techie. It can be worn as a backpack, shoulder bag, or briefcase and has an adjustable strap. It was made in Vietnam using 50% recycled nylon for the body and 100% recycled polyester for the lining. Patagonia takes pride in using their voice to fight environmental issues like climate change every day. It is a certified B-Corporation. It is also Fair Trade certified.


Smile Jamaica Earbuds

Price:

$15

Our Take:

These unique, affordable headphones are made from FSC® certified wood, recyclable aluminum, and recycled plastic. They are noise-isolating and have a woven cable that will not fall victim to the common headphone downfall that is tangling. House of Marley was originally inspired by Bob Marley and his respect for the environment, hence the name House of Marley. Each year House of Marley contributes to an organization that plants trees called One Tree Planted and has since helped plant 223,000 trees.


Pocket Socket USB 1AMP

Price:

$65

Our Take:

This gadget is great for mechanical junkies who love seeing the fruits of their labor. It weighs about 15 oz and is the size of a water bottle. It has a smart chip in it that makes the hand-cranking more comfortable and efficient as well as a USB port. K-TOR makes products like this to increase charger reliability regardless of location and promote greener, more sustainable charger alternatives.


Flora Eco-Friendly iPhone Plus Case - 100% Biodegradable

Price:

$45

Our Take:

This soft case is adorable and is painted with UV curable GREENGUARD Gold certified ink. It is 100% compostable and works just as well at protecting phones as a plastic case. It is made from Flaxstic®, a material generated from compostable bioplastic elastomer and flax straw. It is BPA and lead, phthalate, and cadmium-free. It is a certified B-Corporation and a member of 1% for the planet. It is also climate-neutral certified.


No Bounds Portable Bluetooth Speaker

Price:

$60

Our Take:


This speaker is ideal for your music-loving friend or family member. It has a 10-hour battery life and charges relatively quickly. It is made out of REWIND™ fabric, REGRIND™ Silicone, REGRIND™ Cork, and Recyclable Aluminum. It is also water and dust-resistant. As mentioned above, House of Marley holds immense respect for the environment. It supports One Tree Planted and the Surfrider Foundation which works towards ocean conservation.

Cork Wood iPad Case

Price:

$50

Our Take:

This iPad case is always a good gift option for an iPad owner as its quality and resistance are very strong. It has an all-natural cork exterior along with a recycled lining. It is waterproof and shock-resistant. Another awesome feature that accompanies this purchase is that with every product they sell, Reveal Shop plants a tree. They also donate a percentage of their products to a number of non-profit organizations and are committed to using sustainable materials in every single one of their products.


Wooden AirPods Case Oakywood

Price:

$39

Our Take:

This quality AirPods case is a cute gift idea for someone who has AirPods and struggles to stop dropping the case. It is made from solid, FSC-certified walnut wood and is super effective in protecting AirPods from breakage or dust. Each case is hand-polished in Poland. Although it is important to note that this product does contain a leather hinge with no details as to how the leather was sourced, so if you are not comfortable purchasing an object with leather, it may be worth browsing their other products that have fully transparent materials and sourcing. That being said, every purchase plants one tree which is very cool.


Hue White and Color Ambiance Light Bulbs

Price:

$50

Our Take:

This LED lightbulb can connect to the Hue Bluetooth app from anywhere for an instant mood-setter that can even be activated through voice-control. Each pack comes with a 2-year warranty and has an Energy Efficient Label rating of A+. Each pack contains one Hue lightbulb. This convenient, smart lightbulb is perfect for friends or family who want to spice up their living space a little and add an extra layer of ease, especially if they just moved into their new place
