Haven’t finished your holiday shopping yet? We’re here to help—and you won’t have to fight crowds in the mall or desperately track a shipment with these gift ideas.

Here are 5 last-minute eco-friendly Christmas presents for explorers:


1. TruEarth Laundry Subscription


Explorers aren’t afraid to get dirty—so they need a strong detergent that’s tough on mud, but easy on the environment. Trail blazers are switching from bulky plastic jugs to eco-friendly strips.

You can order a TruEarth subscription for a friend or family member as a Christmas present. Customize a set amount for them to receive every month, three months or six months.


2. Ski lessons & lift pass

Give the gift of adventure... and get a lift pass for yourself while you’re at it! You can find discounted ski passes online at your local hill’s website or retailers such as Costco.

Don’t ski? There are other outdoor experiences you can gift that have minimal impact and maximum fun. Sign up for a local adventure race or outdoor lessons (ie. ice skating, avalanche safety training, etc). Even better, you can often sign up to do those activities together.


3. Explore Magazine Subscription


Despite being printed on paper, explore magazine still has a relatively low environmental impact (compared to plastic gifts and wasted wrapping paper). The latest issue dives into climate change, and editor David Webb isn’t afraid to look at the dichotomy between making memories and needing the proper gear to do so.
