It’s international Men’s day and a perfect time to share Bittu’s, our very own bearded guru and Mauli Rituals Co-Founder, his top eco-friendly, ethical gift list for stylish men with a conscience.
“When I consider gifting, my top priority is to find ethically made, environmentally-friendly products that will endure as opposed to end up in landfill” - Bittu Kaushal
"As a fully signed up mamil I love the look of these. A unique style, sustainably made in the UK by a family firm, what’s not to like.” Bittu
Dashel Helmets are made sustainably. Manufactured at a factory in Cornwall, which makes helmets for the military and marine industry.
Their helmets have a multi-impact liner that doesn't degrade over time. These helmets are designed to last.
"Shorts made from plastic bottles with £1 from every pair sold going to the marine Conservation Society, and they look great!” - Bittu
Riz passionately believe in crafting swimwear with soul. All their shorts are made in Europe and in genuinely small batches. They do not mass produce! Every pair of shorts is also digitally printed in the UK.
Every pair of Riz shorts is tailored from 100% recycled and recyclable fabric (plastic bottles). By offering a 25% discount on a new pair of shorts, they also encourage you to donate your old unwanted shorts for them to repair, recycle or rehome.
Whether triple stitching the shorts for durability, or packaging their products in recycled boxes, Riz is dedicated to delivering uncompromising craftsmanship and quality.
"A pair of Wado sneakers, “ The retro look of these reminds me of my Dunlop Green Flash from back in the day.” Bittu
Their leather is tanned using the Wet-White (Chromium-free, one of the most harmful existing chemicals.) process, specially developed to improve its biodegradability once we get rid of our shoes. Thus, your feet are in contact with a healthier material.
They also plant trees for each pair pre-ordered on indiegogo.
"Always happy to support innovative design and all proceeds from their Bradley KBT range go toward supporting blind children in East Africa. “ - Bittu
Pressed by the conviction that everyone has a right to time, Hyungsoo Kim, founder of Eone collaborated with designers and individuals with vision impairments to create a watch that everyone can use — sighted or not.
Eone has teamed up with the Kilimanjaro Blind Trust on this special edition Bradley timepiece. Each purchase of this edition helps blind children in East Africa read, write, and learn through braille.
"Beard hair is coarse and prevents light and air getting you your skin. The herbs in Nourish heal and replenish the skin and the hit of that multilayered aroma first thing in the morning is always amazing.” Bittu
