The Regeneration's Holiday Gift Guide

Lovett Sundries Deodorant from Arrive Well
@arrivewell

Let’s be honest: everybody sweats, and that’s a good thing! Sweating regulates body temperature and pushes out toxins; without it, we’d be in serious trouble. Unfortunately, many deodorants contain harmful chemicals that you don’t want anywhere near your skin. That doesn’t mean you have to put up with stinky pits. Choose from lavender, lemongrass, pine or unscented.

The cardboard tube used for this deodorant is also made in the U.S.

  • Keeps drinks cold (24 hours) or hot (12 hours).

Keap Candles
@keapbk

Keap was born from a simple question — why is it so hard to buy a high-quality candle that is also sustainable?

Their signature scents will delight, refresh and transport you to nature-inspired memories. Keap uses sustainable coconut wax for a clean and complete burn. Their packaging is 100% plastic-free and made with innovative materials. When the candle is gone, repurpose it into a cup or return it to Keap for re-use.

Primal Derma
@primalderma

At Primal Derma, we take respect for the life of the cow very seriously. If you must take the life of an animal, you should use every part of it.

By using the tallow from these cows, we make good use of something that would otherwise go to waste. Since Primal Derma has just one primary ingredient: food-grade, grass-fed beef tallow, which is significantly healthier for your body to absorb than products loaded with parabens, petrochemicals and stabilizers, you can be just as sure of what you are putting on your body as you are of what you put in it. This is food for your skin.

Grammar explores the foundational elements of the conscientious wardrobe – starting with the classic white shirt. Upholding its iconic stature in the canon of style, the white shirt is versatile and smart. But, above all else, it is democratic.

Grammar shirts are made in New York City using shell buttons and 100% organic cotton, both recyclable and biodegradable.

To ensure that the cotton is of the highest quality, Grammar requires GOTS certification for its compliance with the strictest standards of sustainability and labor rights from seed to finished fabric.

Wowe Bamboo Safety Razor
@wowelifestyle

It is estimated that about 2 billion razors are thrown into landfills every year. All that plastic can take up to 1,000 years to decompose and can even leak pollutants into the surrounding soil and water.

This bamboo safety razor never needs to be thrown away. Even if you do decide to toss it, the bamboo handle is decomposable, and the metal parts can be taken to a recycling center.

The Bamboo Double Edged Safety Razor is perfect for creating an ultra-smooth and clean shave.

Humanscale Smart Ocean Ergonomic Office Chair
@humanscalehq

A variant of their legendary Diffrient Smart Chair, the Smart Ocean is the first ergonomic task chair crafted from recycled fishing nets.

To build this chair, Humanscale teamed up with Bureo, another one of our favorite partners, to source up to 2-pounds of discarded ocean fishing nets through Bureo's Net Positiva program. The chair is also Living Product Certified, meeting the most rigorous sustainable criteria.

With Form-Sensing Mesh Technology, the Diffrient Smart Chair ensures a custom fit that instantly adjusts to each unique user.

Humanscale, it should be noted, is also one of the founding members of the Next Wave Initiative, a consortium of companies such as Dell and GM working to develop a distribution web that would support the reuse and repurposing of plastic before it ever reaches the ocean. By 2025, "NextWave Members will have diverted a minimum of over 55 million lbs. of plastics from entering the ocean," the group said in a press release. Scoop one of their beautiful chairs and support a cleaner ocean!

Big Berkey Water Filter
@berkey_filters

Berkey has taken water filtration to the next level. Seriously, the first time we laid eyes on the 2.25 gallon Big Berkey filter, it was love at first site. And yes, the water tastes as good as the unit looks!

Berkey filters can purify both tap and untreated raw water, removing everything from rust and silt to harmful VOCs, lead, and arsenic while maintaining industry-leading filtration and flow rates. Best of all, one filter is good for up to 3,000 gallons — enough purified water to last multiple people years — so you can forget about needing to change the water filter every few weeks.
