If I could, I would buy you the Earth...

Well now you can. Christmas is a time for giving and the best investment you can make for your family is to "buy the earth" back.
At Sustainable.co.za, we believe that green living should be easy and add to your lifestyle rather than detract. Our little elves spend all their time ensuring that we not only have an expansive range of high quality, cost effective products available, but that there is something for everyone.
With warm Summer evenings, festive cheer filling the streets, and long, lazy days surrounded by family and loved ones, we certainly are lucky to spend this joyous day in the Southern Hemisphere.
The Gift of Christmas
We understand that Christmas gift shopping can be stressful with long queues, packed shopping centres and low or no stock available, it is not a very relaxing thought at a time of year when we need it most. Online shopping greatly alleviates this stress. Browse through our range at any time of day, ask advice and get everything delivered right to your doorstep from the comfort of your own home.
When it comes to gifts, we first and foremost, recommend upcycling. Recycling unwanted items is a great way to preserve the earth. Get the kids involved and make it a holiday project. These kind of gifts are the most thoughtful and full of love. There are plenty of videos on Youtube with regard to upcycled gifts - what are you waiting for? Another alternative would be to refurbish an unwanted present from previous years. Yes, we give you fill permission to do this. Rather pass it on to someone you love than letting it end up in the rubbish bin or stuck at the far reaches of your cupboard.
If you don't have the time this year, we have a wide range of offers available at our webstore. Great green gifts for you and your loved ones.
A garden can be a true reflection of the love inside the house, especially at Christmas time. We have a wide range of Christmas Lights available for you to decorate in style. We also have an extensive variety of solar garden lighting available for you to achieve the ambiance you want outdoors. Our Mooni Turners are lovely little lamps that look like tea light candles and are perfect for outdoor table decoration. For those concerned about security this season, we have some great options available in our security light range.
Grey Water Recycling and Rain Water Storage Systems are a fantastic tool to save water this Summer. Water your garden with excess water from your washing machine and basin that would normally go to waste. Our Rain Water Tanks are easy to put together and will certainly be a conversation starter.
Another great accessory to improve your green fingers this season are our compostable garden pots. Nurture your seedlings in these containers and then simply plant them directly into your garden when they are ready. The pots will decompose and provide an added source of nutrients to help your plants along.
Save water this Summer with our range of Water Saving Shower Heads. We have some great shower heads available, easy on your pocket and best of all, easy on water usage. Try out the Marigold that comes with 4 different settings and rated as a favourite in a recent review. Our pallet furniture is a big win this month. Rustic and hand-made with love, the Towel Rail and Shelf will make a lovely addition to any bathroom. Save on electricity with our laundry alternatives. The Sputnik Wonder Washing Machine and Spindel Laundry Driers will save you plenty of electricity and water. They are also portable and can be taken with on road trips during the holidays. Add the Biowash Laundry Ball to the mix and cut down greatly on detergents. Our eco-friendly, unbleached toilet paper is another great alternative. We think it's so great, that we use it in the toilets at our offices in The Green Building.
The Kitchen is the heart of a home and our brand new pallet Kitchen Island will make a great centre piece for this room. Add a small kitchen composter for your food scraps and you are well on your way. Light up your kitchen with LED lights and save electricity and money, particularly with our Lamp for Life range that boasts a 25 year warranty. Yup, you read right - 25 years! Start recycling this Christmas with our colourful, easy-to-use recycling bins. If you are looking to spend less time washing the dishes, check out our eco-packaging range, particularly our plate and utensils pack.
We are here to assist with all factors of Green Living; Pool Pumps, Energy Efficient and Solar Fridges/ Freezers, Eco Cookers, Solar Cookers, Gas Ovens and Water Heaters, not to mention Solar Power Systems and Solar Water Heating Kits. Camping enthusiast? No problem, we have portable Solar Power Kits, Water Purifiers, Solar Battery Chargers and Powerbanks for those who have access to AC charging. Need to know how much power you are using? Our Efergy Electricity Monitors are ideal and available at great prices. Geyser Blankets, Timers, Pipe Insulation and more, we even keep regular stock of Instant Water Heaters at our offices. As you can see, we have left no stone unturned. Love to Braai?
