Gifts for the College Student

With Thanksgiving falling unusually late this year, now is the time to start searching for holiday gifts for college students. There are many creative sustainable items you can give them that will make their busy lives away from home easier and better organized. If buying for a college student seems daunting, check out these 6 great eco-gift ideas!


GrooveMagnet Earbuds

A great pair of headphones makes a perfect gift! Music lovers will stand out from the crowd with these premium headphones that have the optimum acoustics of real handcrafted bamboo. It is easy to tune out loud background activity with these noise canceling headphones. The earbuds are handcrafted from sustainably harvested bamboo and the wires are made of biodegradable bioplastics!


Solar String Lights

Every evening is instantly festive with this 10 piece Soji mini string light set. Watch as these lights turn themselves on when darkness falls, creating an inspiring glow night after night. The solar panels on these lamps are highly efficient and therefore use less silicon per product than many other solar-powered lights, even while providing the same output. Additionally, no wiring or electrical outlets are needed! Unlike paper lanterns, these solar string lights are created from nylon and are powered by the sun for year-round use - indoors or out. Simply perfect for dorm room décor!


Scrubba Wash bag

Do your kids come home with a pile of laundry complaining that they have to pay a huge amount per load at school? This Australian take on the old fashioned washboard enables students to achieve a machine quality wash in just minutes. It's perfect for the dorm room and those on the go! Just add water and scrub. It’s easy and Scrubba weighs less than 5 oz, folds to pocket-size, which makes it small enough to take anywhere – a perfect gift for students on the move!


Mini Wooden Drying Rack

Similarly, with coin operated driers costing a small fortune and the possibility of clothes shrinking in the high heat, an accordion-style drying rack solves both problems! Its compact design allows the rack to fit perfectly in a corner for out of the way drying. This beautiful wood rack provides 14 feet of drying space and is great for small loads of laundry. This drying rack is a great size for dorms and small apartments!


Beverage Koozie

If you want to keep your coffee hot and your cold drinks cold, these beverage Koozies will certainly do the trick. The Koozie is produced from upcycled neoprene wetsuits, which makes them strong, flexible enough to fit most cans and bottles, and one of the coolest items in the dorm or dining hall!


The Fusion Canvas Messenger Bag

The Fusion Canvas Messenger Bag is made with heavy canvas and leather trim. Amazingly, it also provides 2.5 watts of power with its solar charging module! This bag has pockets for your cell phone and a large cavity for a laptop computer. The messenger bag is perfect for school, with ample space for folders, binders, and books. Side and accessory pockets feature a see-through cover and orange accents for easy access to your personal items. Stay charged while moving around campus!
