No Plastic VI: The summer(house) gift

During my efforts to reduce the use of plastics at home and at work, I’v become increasingly aware of what a huge problem plastic products are to our environment and ultimately to all life on earth (read former posts on the subject under ”No Plastic”, you’ll find the links to the right on this page). Plastic mania is all around!

When visiting friends and relatives in the countryside I like to bring small, environmental friendly yet stylish products as a gift to my host. Something simple but useful. Something which can replace a similar plastic product.
