Eco-friendly souvenirs so you can remember your family holiday forever


One trend that is becoming more and more popular is buying sustainable souvenirs. In Spain there has been a surge of local businesses that care for the environment recently, so it is now very easy to find gifts that are both delightful and eco-friendly. It is an environmentally friendly option that is becoming more and more fashionable.   

One of the best things to do when travelling is looking for souvenirs that will remind you of the various moments you experienced during your trip. This list contains various ideas that may give you some inspiration.-One gift that is always welcome is sweets and desserts. Rosquillas, torrijas, mantecados, sobaos pasiegos, turrón... wherever you go in Spain you will find delicious sweets and desserts that are typical to that region, and they are now available in eco-friendly versions.- Spain has a great tradition of artisanal crafts. Some examples of this are the porcelain products in Sargadelos (Lugo), with shapes and patterns inspired by Celtic culture, or the ceramic products in the Catalonian town of La Bisbal, where you can buy terracotta dishes to add a special touch to your dining table.

- Ibiza and Formentera are known for their salt flats, where fleur de sel is harvested by hand. This is a fully sustainable, environmentally friendly gift that will add flavour and a touch of the Balearic Islands to all of your dishes. - If you travel through Andalusia, the land of olives, don’t forget to buy some organic olive oil. We recommend visiting the region of Jaén, where they produce some particularly aromatic and intense oils. There are endless opportunities for finding sustainable souvenirs in Spain. The only challenge will be choosing which ones to buy and enjoy with the whole family so you can remember your trip forever.
