5 Tips for an Eco-Friendly Christmas
1. Refashioned Christmas Stockings
Rather than buying new stockings, why not refashion bags or socks to hang from the mantlepiece this year? Our Moroccan babouche slippers all come with cotton dustbags which make for great minimalist stockings!
2. Foraged Christmas Tree
Nothing says festive cheer like a Christmas tree, but what about a Christmas branch?! Forage for some fallen branches and decorate with ornaments and fairy lights to make it your own. Christmas branches are particularly good for small spaces that might not fit a tree.
3. Handmade Decorations
There are so many ways to make your own beautiful festive ornaments. One of our favourites is drying orange slices in the oven for a natural pop of colour for the tree or table setting to complement natural textures like our wooden tableware.
4. Creative Christmas Crackers
No Christmas table is complete without Christmas crackers! Luckily, crackers can be made with an empty toilet roll, some scrap fabric, and ribbon. You might have to unwrap rather than pull, but the beauty is that you can personalise the gifts in each cracker with thoughtful little bits like dainty jewellery.
5. Ditch the Wrapping Paper
Wrapping paper can really add to waste at Christmas time, so why not think about wrapping presents in scrap fabric, or even better, presenting gifts in baskets which can be reused again and again!
