Ethical ‘on the go’ wins Gift Of The Year

With a total of five awards, Blue Eyed Sun swept the board at the Gift Of The Year Awards (GOTY – organised by The Giftware Association), held during this week’s Spring Fair @Home.

The Kitchen & Dining award went to Blue Eyed Sun’s Bioloco Plant Lunch Pot, which is climate neutral, recyclable and compostable. Bioloco Loop water bottles won the Contemporary Gift plus the inaugural People’s Choice categories – voted for by over 6,000 members of the public – while the Bioloco Plant Kids Bottles scooped the Ethical Gift category.

Another ‘on the go’ product from Blue Eyed Sun – Bamboo Cup by Chic.Mic – won the Own Label Award.
