Blue Marble is coming to the East Midlands!

Getting hold of your eco-friendly gifts for Christmas just got a whole lot easier if you live in the East Midlands. A quick of google of “eco friendly gift ideas” tends to bring up lots of websites from the states, and not so many UK-based companies.

Blue marble (www.blue-marble.net) are proud to be Derbyshire-based and at the end of this month, we are very pleased to be taking part in an exclusive pop-up shop for high quality gifts for the festive season and beyond.

Above the famous Queenies coffee bar and cake shop in Quarndon, Raven gifts and Interiors will host a number of locally based producers, showcasing their Christmas gift ideas.

Not only will you be able to browse home-made crafts, bags, soaps and novelty gift ideas, but you’ll also be able to pop downstairs to Queenies and take the weight off with a slice of cake, a late breakfast, or just a cheeky coffee.

Eco friendly gift ideas from Blue-Marble

We have made our complete product range available to this exciting local venture, so if it’s on www.blue-marble.net it will be available at Raven gifts and interiors! So instead of hankies, socks or board games, think outside the box and help someone do their bit for this world.

Know someone who likes smoothies, shakes, cocktails or juices? Our metal straw packs are perfect! With a straight, bent and super-wide straw in EVERY pack, along with 2 cleaning brushes in a beautiful cotton pouch, these super eco-friendly gifts won’t even set you back a tenner! Not only that, they are available in Silver, Rose Gold and Rainbow (or Unicorn). Is your little girl obsessed with unicorns? The Rainbow straw set changes colour in the light and make a great stocking filler in “unicorn” colour….

Does that special someone love their coffee, fruit teas or infused water? Our beautiful bamboo flasks are supplied with 2 infusers (large and small) and will keep drinks at temperature for up to 8 hours.

Gym freak? How about our simple, stylish brushed stainless steel double-walled water bottle. Ideal for chilled water, juices, energy drinks. Highest quality 304 stainless steel and proudly carrying the laser-etched ‘Blue Marble’ logo.

Even things you don’t think about, we have it covered! Cotton buds. Cotton buds are one of the biggest culprits to the worldwide issue of Ocean pollution. Buy someone our bamboo alternatives for under three quid a box!

Know someone that takes their lunch to work every day, or buys a lot of food on the go? Get rid of plastic “sporks” from their life, and give them our complete bamboo cutlery set, wrapped in a sustainable cotton pouch….

These sorts of gifts alone are reason enough to make a visit and bag yourself some eco-friendly gift ideas. But the fact there are more than 10 local suppliers also showcasing their wares AND there’s cake downstairs (did I mention that?) means that you can finally support local business, reduce your carbon footprint, and take home a stack of gifts that your loved ones will actually thank you for.

Open for Christmas shopping

This exclusive pop up shop will be open from November 28th to December 7th - Monday to Saturday from 9am to 6pm, so you need to be quick. Pop DE22 5JA into your sat nav and bag yourself gifts that will inspire and delight, and that may just be that little bit different to the same old pair of socks. Queenies can be found at Church Road, Quarndon, and Raven Gifts and interiors is just upstairs.

See you there!
