For a paper towel-free kitchen, there’s the Swedish dishcloth: an extra-thin, extra-strong, quick-drying cloth that can be washed and reused. Ten and Co’s holiday set ($12) comes with cranberry-printed and “Falala”-themed designs. tenandco.ca

Western Living 2021 Holiday Gift Guide: Sustainable Gifts Tero countertop composter

A Countertop Composter

This countertop appliance from a Quebec-based startup is taking the gross out of composting. The Tero ($595) is a compost device that odourlessly dries and grinds food waste, reducing the volume by 90 percent. What remains can be used to fertilize your giftee’s lawn or garden. teroinnovation.ca
