15 Best Eco-Friendly  Father’s Day Gifts 

Here’s the ultimate list of sustainable Father’s Day gifts to show your dad or other men in your life how much you value them.

1. Shoes Made From Upcycled Materials

The words shopping and my dad can’t be found in the same sentence. My mom has been in charge of helping him get new clothes all my life. If your dad is also like this or he loves fashion and puts a lot of stock into his appearance, he’ll love these shoes.

The shoes are handcrafted with genuine full-grain leather on a 4-inch shaft. They look stylish and can pass as everyday shoes or for a more elegant occasion.

The handcrafted leather and the square toe profile make them extremely comfortable. There’s no need to break them in, and your dad will feel good even after wearing them all day long.

The shoes are oil and slip-resistant due to molded rubber outsoles with 1.5-inch block heel, which prevents skidding or falling on slippery surfaces.

Why is it eco-friendly? It’s handcrafted from upcycled materials and genuine leather. The shoes are part of the company's effort to make a positive impact on the planet.


2. Eco-Friendly Coffee Tumbler

If I had to decide who drinks more coffee between my parents, I would be hard-pressed to answer. If your dad is a tea or coffee lover, he’ll be thrilled with this all-beverage travel tumbler.

This flask is a combination of a tea infuser, coffee thermos, fruit water infuser, sports, water bottle, cold brew coffee maker, and more — no matter which drink your dad prefers, he’ll find a use for this tumbler.

It has a two-way filter, so there’s an option for brewing hot and cold tea, as well as cold-brewed coffee. The standard infuser has 1mm holes, while this infuser has .5mm, which results in a more refined brew.

Finally, the tumbler can hold 17 oz of liquid, which can last for hours.

Why is it eco-friendly? The tumbler is 100% BPA-free, non-toxic, and resistant to odors and corrosion. By using this tumbler every day instead of a disposable cup, your dad will save up to 23lbs of trash yearly.


3. An Eco-Friendly Minimalist Wooden Watch

Do you remember all the childhood trips with your dad constantly checking his watch and reminding everyone how much time there’s left before departure? 

Dads love watches, especially when they are unique such as this one.

This is an ultra-thin, 7.5mm, stainless steel case watch with a black walnut watchband. The nice color and wood grain dial make it suitable for all occasions.

Next to a watch, every dad needs a wallet, and this cork wallet is sure to wow.

It has a slim design ( 4.5 x 3.7 x 0.5 inches), and it’s twice as light compared to a leather wallet. There are coin pockets, 2 bill compartments, and 6 card slots, so your dad can pack everything — coins, cards, receipts, and bill money. 

The wallet has RFID blocking materials, so all personal information is secure, and there’s no chance of electronic pickpocketing.

This makes the wallet a perfect traveling companion.

Finally, your dad will have a unique wallet. Due to the wood shaving method the wallet is made of, there are no two identical wallets.

It’s extremely thin, with a 6.8” display, thin borders, adjustable warm light, and an impressive 10 weeks of battery life. My dad always forgets to charge his devices, so this is a handy feature. 

There’s no need to fear the device will hurt his eyes — there’s a 300 PPI glare-free display and adjustable warm light that shifts from white to amber.

Your dad will feel like he’s reading real paper, even in bright sunlight.

Not to mention, he’ll be able to store thousands of books and take them wherever he goes.

11. Reusable Whiskey Stones

Does your dad love to wind down with a glass of whiskey after a long day at work? 

Then get him these reusable whiskey stones this Father’s Day.

Whiskey stones are a better choice than ice because they don’t melt, which means there’s no diluting the whiskey, plus they have a longer cooling time.

The stones are easy to use. All your dad needs to do is place them in the freezer for as little as 4 hours, and they’ll be chilled. 2 to 3 stones are enough to cool the drink, and they can be washed in water and ready to use again.
