Father’s Day Gifts for Our Planet…oh and Dad!
Fathers Day Sunday 6 September 2020
We are forever grateful to the amazing Dads in the Urban Revolution family and Fathers Day gives us all the opportunity to pause and celebrate the wonderful Dads, Grandads and father figures in our world.
Giving gifts is an important way for many of us to thank Dad for all his support and hard work, but Dads can be so hard to buy for! We've come up with a list of sustainable eco gifts for Fathers Day - they are reusable or compostable and made from better materials that don't cost the Earth!
In this article we share 5 Fathers Day gifts for Dads who are hard to buy for, or see our full range of Fathers Day gift ideas here.
What Fathers Day Gifts are Good for the Earth?
Our Fathers Day gifts are made of sustainable materials such as hemp, coconut fibres or paper. We try very hard to avoid plastic in our gifts - this link explains more about the environmental issues with plastic.
A simple swap of plastic products for gifts made from compostable and natural materials that will return to the Earth will help a lot.
We have recommendations for the many and various types of Dads in our lives in the form of Fathers Day Gift Packs.
Peruse through our specific ‘Dad’ range of possible gifts that are Earth-friendly, high quality and made as locally as possible.

Eco Gift Wrapping Options for the Earth
The majority of gift-wrapping options such as wrapping paper, sticky tape and ribbons are made from single-use plastic. That glossy paper is printed with plastic toner ink and is the reason it can’t be recycled. Sticky tape is a classic one-use item soon to be micro-plastic!
Gift wrapping options that don't cost the Earth are vegetable ink patterned paper, butcher or kraft paper used plain or decorated with messages. Add washi paper tape and plant-based ribbons or strings to decorate.
We have a fab range of Earth-friendly gift wrapping options for your present, such as these Fabric Gift Wraps, which are reusable and eliminate the need for single-use gift wrapping, including the use of sticky tape.
Our Fathers Day Gift Packs are packaged with minimal, repurposed, recycled, up-cycled or compostable gift wrapping.
You can find all of our products in our Perth store or online for click-and-collect or Australia-wide delivery.
