Christmas is only around the corner and preparations for the merry day are already in full swing! While it is the most wonderful time of the year, it isn’t always the most eco-friendly time! Make it a goal this year to have a zero waste Christmas – use natural decorations, bring along your reusable shopping bags, gift sustainably and more!
Use Natural Christmas Decorations
Opt-out of the glitter and tinsel this year and use natural decorations instead! Natural foliage, such as branches, leaves, pinecones and berries are timeless and can be re-used more many years to come.

No wire, no floral foam, no floral tape = only natural materials! Simple! And fun. Order today for a stunning homemade wreath that you will love, last, and feel proud of!
Take Reusable Bags With You Christmas Shopping
You’re probably going to make multiple trips to buy more than you’re supposed to this Christmas, so reduce your plastic consumption by bringing along Reusable Shopping Bags and Produce Bags. It might just feel like one plastic bag the first trip but after multiple trips needing multiple bags, the plastic will build up! Being prepared when shopping will save the environment from extra landfill!
Christmas is a time of cooking and feasting. Where possible, source locally grown and organic produce. Choose sustainably farmed meat and seafood, and free-range eggs. These small practices will ensure that your Christmas carbon footprint will be as minimal as possible. And, don’t forget to use Reusable Containers and Reusable Food Covers if you have leftovers!
Avoid Disposables When Hosting
Everyone hates doing the dishes and it’s even worse when you have to do the dishes for a large group! Single–use plates, knives, spoons, and forks will just build up in landfill after your Christmas party so help leave your conscience clear by washing up what you already have. If you don’t have enough crockery and cutlery for everyone, ask them to bring their own set along! But if you really must use disposable cutlery, choose Reusable Bamboo Cutlery or wooden cutlery as they are naturally biodegradable and compostable.
Don’t buy a present just for the sake of buying a present. Plan out your gift list and put some thought into what your family/friends will love and use. Better yet, gift them something plastic free that will not be a detriment to our planet. Browse our website to see what’s on offer!
Still don’t know what to get them? Give them the gift of choice! Our E-Gift cards are electronic and are delivered straight to your recipient’s email after processing, available for immediate use. Say goodbye to pesky PVC cards and hello to a gift card they can’t misplace and will not expire!
Wrap Your Christmas Gifts Sustainably
So, you’ve decided on what to buy your family/friend for Christmas this year… but what will you wrap it in? Regular wrapping papers aren’t as eco-friendly and sustainable as some might think! Many have a thin film of plastic and use dyes to give it colour! Opt for kraft paper as a more sustainable option. You can also use fabric which can then be reused after as a tea towel/makeshift bag or reused again to wrap another gift! Browse our range of Reusable Gift Wraps here. Available in a range of colours, patterns and sizes to suit your needs!
