9 Eco Gift Tips To Help You Become More Environmentally Friendly
If you really want to try and become a more sustainable household but are unsure how to start this Christmas then our 9 tips to help you go more eco-friendly should help:
1. Buy a sustainable Christmas tree then re-plant it in your garden for next year. Put it in a pot and plant it if you need to contain it’s size. Remember to check the Soil Association website if you’re concerned about your tree being organic. if you’d prefer a fake tree then try searching on eBay or GumTree for a second hand one first.
2. Choose Christmas decorations that will last. Many decorations are made using non-recyclable materials but if you can keep using them year on year then that helps reduce your carbon footprint.
3. Buying eco gifts for your friends and family or even better just buy one present each. This not only saves you money but helps save the environment too. Why not do a huge Secret Santa gift swap between your whole family so everyone gets a present and still gets a surprise?
4. Think about the wrapping. Could you use reusable bags or ribbon from past Christmases? You could also decorate your own brown paper to make it extra personalised.
5. Plan your Christmas dinner buy trying to reduce food waste. You could re-use anything left over for the rest of the week.
6. Think about trying to reduce your meat intake over the Christmas period. There are so many gorgeous meat alternatives that really do taste as good or better than meat.
7. Try soy candles or beeswax candles. They are safer for the environment.
8. Do you need to send Christmas cards? Could you send a personalized video? or email? These are all free to do and paper free.
9. Reuse your advent calendar. Could you make your own? Using an organic cotton can help you be more natural too.
