Nov 3, 2023

It’s always the perfect time to spread joy and goodwill, not only to our loved ones but also to our planet. Why not make your celebrations and gifts more eco-friendly? At BAMBII, we have carefully hand-picked our top sustainable gifts that will inspire and delight your friends and family on any occasion, contributing to a greener future.

1. RE=COMB: Combining Style and Sustainability

Prepare to revolutionize your haircare routine with RE=COMB. These combs are more than just functional tools – they're a colorful and conscious addition to your daily grooming ritual.

What makes them truly special is their origin: RE=COMB hair combs are crafted from recycled plastic, turning waste into beautiful, eco-conscious products. It's a fresh approach to both beauty and waste reduction.

This innovative brand is driven by the dynamic duo of Sarah Jo Palmer and Christopher Deagle, professional hair stylists with extensive experience in the fashion industry. Their passion for sustainability and reducing the fashion industry's environmental footprint gave birth to RE=COMB.

It's more than a brand; it's a movement dedicated to reshaping the future of hair tools and fostering a more sustainable beauty industry.

Consider this staggering fact: we discard enough plastic each year to encircle the globe five times. Shockingly, only 9% of it is recycled, causing significant environmental harm. RE=COMB is on a mission to change this by giving waste a new life, reducing landfill and ocean waste.

As they rightly state, "At RE=COMB, we believe that we all have a responsibility to take care of our planet. By reducing our plastic consumption, ending the use of single-use plastics, and reusing and recycling whenever possible, we can all make a difference.”

RE=COMB's commitment to sustainability goes beyond their products; they are working towards creating a circular economy by recycling plastics like PP, HDPE, and LDPE.

Through their local recycling program, they breathe new life into waste plastic, transforming it into high-quality, functional, and eco-friendly products.

When you choose products made from recycled materials, like those offered by RE=COMB, you're not just making a style statement – you're making a positive impact on the environment."

3. ReMI: Reconnecting with Nature

In our fast-paced world, where distractions abound, it's easy to feel disconnected from ourselves and nature. ReMI was born out of a pressing need to restore this connection within our daily routines.

Unlike traditional skincare, which often comprises 70-90% water, ReMI's Moisturiser Stone is a waterless, solid formulation. This innovative approach delivers high-performance actives directly to your skin, undiluted and potent.

The ReMI Stone isn't just a skincare product; it's a 4-in-1 solution that provides the sensory benefits we crave while eliminating excess that can overwhelm our senses.

ReMI believes that sustainable beauty begins with buying less. Their innovative products are multipurpose and long-lasting, simplifying your skincare routine. By removing water, they have reduced the product's size while maximizing the efficacy of active ingredients, resulting in significantly reduced packaging and shipping.

They are committed to responsible, local sourcing. Operating their own lab enables founder Marta to handpick suppliers and trace every ingredient. They source native essential oils from knowledgeable suppliers who practice regenerative farming methods.

Every ReMI Stone is handmade in their lab in Melbourne. Attention to detail is paramount, from sourcing ingredients to blending formulations and packing each Stone, all done mindfully and masterfully to establish a connection between the product, nature, and the user.

ReMI's packaging is a testament to their environmental responsibility. It's entirely plastic-free, minimising waste and pollution often associated with beauty care. Their innovative packaging, achieving NetZero certification, is made from biodegradable and recyclable materials.

Their collaboration with esteemed Melbourne artist Ryan L Foote introduces art and sustainability into daily life with bespoke keepsake ceramic boxes, handmade just 3km from their lab.
