Looptworks sources excess neoprene from the wetsuit industry to keep tablets and laptops safe, all the while conserving water and other natural resources. Crafted exclusively in fair labor factories, these meticulously upcycled sleeves come in multiple sizes and colors (from $30, looptworks.com).

Sumptuous, hand-sewn leather bison moccasins are lined with eco-felt that warms toes and provides light foot support. No carry-on should be without a pair. Available in men’s and women’s sizes ($79, kaufmann-mercantile.com).

The Dreaming Tree’s Crush (a red blend), Cabernet and Chardonnay wines all feature sustainably designed bottles and help support various conservation organizations. Nice. Even better, they’re offering a holiday gift pack featuring the above trio along with $50 gift card to Ticketmaster—which makes sense since musician Dave Matthews is one of the company’s co-founders ($69, a $95 value, dreamingtreewines.com).
