We strongly believe in buying local, ethically-sourced products, so here we have it: a compiled, hand-picked list of the best eco-friendly gifts—all tried-and-tested by our team at Cha Siu Papers—to put under the Christmas tree. All images and text content are created by Cha Siu Papers unless stated overwise.
The Bali Box
One-Off Quarterly Box
We're kicking off with the ultimate gift box: Hong Kong's first eco-subscription package. This is a perfect way to introduce eco-living into your daily life, or if you’re well on the bandwagon, a replenishing of stock. The Bali Box is a quarterly subscription of hand-picked eco-conscious, sustainable, and natural products, sourcing bath, beauty and kitchen items from Bali to Hong Kong and makes a great eco-Christmas gift. Shipping emissions are offset using MyClimate.org for every order.
Cha Siu Papers trialed and tested the One-Off Quarterly Box, an assortment of luxury eco-items from kitchen necessities to natural bath remedies. Each item is carefully sourced by founder Tara who ensures the products tick all the environmentally-friendly boxes (natural, non-toxic, biodegradable/recycled materials, including coconut and essential oils, dried lontar palm leaf, seagrass, recycled cotton, beeswax, and soy wax, and packaging (if any) is generally recycled paper, tin or glass). She works with local artisans and small businesses in Bali to ensure social responsibility, and all products are plastic-free with the exception of some caps on natural bug sprays and essential oils. Read our Unboxing article to find out more about The Bali Box and what they offer.
Cha Siu Papers' results: A wonderful package of high-quality, eco-friendly products for everyday use and living.

Australian-owned Flow Factory Co. operates in Hong Kong to provide fitness advocates with quality, contemporary active and yoga wear and fitness equipment. The label has been spotted across the city, often sponsoring wellness events and workshops with its signature yoga mats.
We’ve chosen the popular biodegradable (but reuseable) Cork Mat to feature as a Christmas gift, ideal for those looking to kick-start their yoga goals this coming year. Made from 100% natural cork on the top layer and natural non-Amazon harvested tree rubber at the bottom, this environmentally-friendly mat is slip-resistant, water-resistant, antimicrobial, mildew-resistant and has a durable surface.
Cha Siu Papers' results: Feels so nice and plush to stretch on this mat—also lasts a long time so don't need to worry about it breaking anytime soon.
