Gifts for Sustainable Shopping

Give a gift to the Earth this holiday season by keeping your shopping eco-friendly!

FD Market (158 Northampton St.)

FD Market has got the sustainability goods. It’s a great place to foray into the world of low packaging and bulk home goods purchasing. Their shampoo and conditioner bars are perfect for camping, traveling, and they smell bomb. Especially the DIP bars! Bring your own special thrifted jar and fill up on soaps – an easy and unique gift! Pair it with some of their patterned napkins or dish towels for a little whammy of a gift.

Easton Outdoor Company (230 Northampton St.)

Easton Outdoor gets your outdoors. Favorites include Hydroflask food containers that keep that soup HOT while you’re hiking, camping, or just out and about and want to guarantee. A great gift for someone who works outside or on-the-go. Pair it with some reusable cutlery and you’re golden. And everyone loves socks, whether they admit it or not. Darn Tough will make a sock lover out of anyone with their lifetime guarantee. Got holes in your socks, just send ‘em back and they will issue a rebate for a new pair!

Nature’s Way Market (143 Northampton St.)

Bulk herbs and spices from Nature’s Way! The perfect place to stop if you want to make your own tea blends, spice blends, or body care products. You can bring and tare your own containers and get crafty at home! Or pick out one of their tea blends and put in a cute jar (they also have reusable tea bags!). And for the coffee lover, there’s a reusable filter to go with their selection of bulk coffee bean choices!
Plus, local jam and peanut butter, because who doesn’t love this combination? You can’t go wrong with a classic.
 Produce bags! Cute for loading up at store or at the Easton Farmers Market!

Mercantile Home (140 Northampton St.)

Say hello to the cutest shirts and dresses made out of upcycled tea towels. Your Grandma would be proud to see such things of beauty. Not to mention, they have dashing scarves, eye pillows, and a whole wall of fabric rolls for the crafty fellow/dame in your life.

Casa 401 (16 N. 3rd St.)

This new shop carries gifts from Colombia, with unique fashion-forward statement pieces to hip and stylish jewelry -and a dabbling of the in-between. The fruit journals are colorful, cute, and oh-so-useful.

Book and Puppet (22 Centre Sq.)

Love this little shop that carries books of all kinds for all ages and all interests. Let’s support our local bookstores. ❤️ Looking for something specific for someone that they don’t have in the shop? Andy will order it for you!

Quadrant & ThreeBirds Coffee

1. A gift card to The Quadrant! With an array of wonderful books and food items, they are a sure stop for someone who has an interest in expanding their book collection with unique used books and grabbing a tasty bite. All in a beautiful, historic Easton building.
2. Gift card to Three Birds Coffee House! Situated in another beautiful old Easton building, Three Birds sources all of their coffee locally as well as their pastries (from a modern Crumb). A great place to ponder life’s wonders, read a book, or plot your next bike route…

Trek Bicycle (126 Bushkill St.)

 Bike locks, helmets, bells, water bottles, patch kits, you name it. Of you like to get around on two wheels, this is a sure stop in Downtown Easton.
The folks there are knowledgeable and passionate about bikes, so it’s a great place to stop if you’re looking to spend less time on the highway and more time hitting the bike paths.
