These innovative, eco-friendly products will leave dad feeling pampered, stylish and thinking green.


1. Alchemy Goods Toiletry Bag

bg-product-elliott-01Alchemy Goods turns landfill-bound inner tubes, old seatbelts and advertising banners into unique bags and wallets. This durable toiletry bag is made from reclaimed truck inner tube and is comprised of 92% upcylced material. Whether your dad is a world class traveler or just likes to look fresh throughout his day, this bag is perfect for all of his on-the-go grooming needs. The bag is water-resistant and fully recycled and sewn in Seattle. Peruse the Alchemy Goods website for more amazing upcycled products such as messenger bags, backpacks, laptop sleeves and even belts.

2. WakaWaka Power Solar Powered Charger and Lamp 


This solar powered charger and lamp by WakaWaka can fully power your smartphone or tablet in under 2 hours AND provide 10 hours of bright light on a single charge, making it 200% more efficient than anything on the market. Sound like something dad would drool over?

Another plus of the charger: Free energy! ($79)

3. Imperial Barber Products Shave Bundle

4. Coyuchi Organic Seersucker Robe



Light and perfect for summertime, Coyuchi’s seersucker robe made from organic cotton will let dad feel luxurious after every bathe. Coyuchi uses only 100% organic cotton sourced and woven in India, produces their items using fair-labor practices and works hard to minimize their impact on the environment.

5. Vapur MicroFilter



Want to give your dad a gift that is equally useful as it is cool? Then check out Vapur’s MicroFilter foldable water bottle. It uses a lightweight, chemical-free water filtration system so you can purify water from lakes, rivers, streams and tap, and helps to reduce the amount of water bottles that end up in landfills (a whopping 22 billion per year!). The bottle itself boasts a sleek design that collapses when the bottle is empty, while the filtration system safely removes 99.99% of waterborne bacteria. Not only will dad never have to buy bottled water again, he can also conveniently store the collapsible bottle in his pocket or briefcase when not in use. ($69.99)

6. Reveal Boulder iPad Case



This pocketed fleece iPad Case by Reveal is made from post-consumer plastic bottles. Yes, you read correctly… Fleece made from plastic bottles. The case itself is very plush so dad can carry around his iPad without having to worry about breaking it. Another, more sophisticated, option is the polyester Castro iPad Case also made from recycled bottles. Who knew such amazing things could be done with water bottles? Now your dad does. ($68)
