Here at Protect the Planet we are proud to stock and sell a wide range of different eco brands. Whether it is eco homewares, eco gifts or anything in-between, the variety that we have in stock is what makes us a great choice for your eco needs.

One of the brands that we stock, and that we love to is NKUKU.

Who are they?

NKUKU is an ethical homewares manufacturer who work throughout Africa and Asia. They create a number of eco gifts which are ideal to treat a special someone in your life for their birthday, for Christmas or for any other occasion. Despite the fact that they produce high quality, ethical goods, they also recognise that sometimes you need to buy gifts on a budget, which is why they have created their gifts for under £5 as well as their other higher priced items.

What eco gifts can you buy?

Another great thing about NKUKU is the different items that they are able to produce.

For those that love to make delicious dinners in the kitchen, why not treat them to the Chunni Square Mango Wood Chopping Board? Made from sustainable Mango Wood this square shaped chopping board is not only durable but it looks pretty stylish too!

If you are searching for a low cost eco gift then the Fire Fly Tear Drop Lanterns are ideal. Made from recycled glass, these lanterns look great no matter where you hang them up. The work underneath a pergola, scattered through tree branches or perhaps just over an outdoor eating area to give a soft lighting effect.

Another popular NKUKU item that are a proud to stock is the Indra Coil Basket. This basket is made by craftsmen in India all by hand. The fibres are all entirely natural and include jute, cotton and leather. They are then naturally dyed before being naturally spun and woven into shape. Both rigid and free standing, it is the ideal way to store things away at home.

Finally we have the stylish and simple Naveena Fairtrade Bangle. This solid wood bangle is made in Africa and has a polished sheen to make sure that it looks its best. It comes complete in a cotton bag to protect the bangle and is opened at one end to make it easy to put on and remove.

Thinking about buying that special someone something a little bit different? Want to make sure that they not only have a top quality gift but one that also has a positive impact on the world around you? Come to Protect the Planet and check out the NKUKU range. You might be surprised by just how gorgeous eco friendly gifts and homewares can look!
