Eco-Friendly Christmas Ideas

Are you dreaming of a green Christmas? If you've clicked onto this blog then I'd like to think you are! Use these eco-friendly Christmas ideas as inspiration on the run up to Christmas Day...

Recycled Christmas gift wrap 

Buy eco-friendly wrapping paper, tags and tape. If you’re unsure if your Christmas gift wrap is recyclable, scrunch it up and if the paper unfolds on its own then its likely to include non-recyclable materials.

Don’t just throw the scrap bits in the bin! You can make unique eco-friendly Christmas decorations out of them. A great festive family activity to do over the holidays!

 

 

Plantable or E- Christmas cards

Think about sending Christmas cards digitally, especially if you have a long list of recipients. If you’d prefer to give your loved ones an eco-friendly Christmas card this year, ensure that it’s made from eco-friendly or plantable paper. This season we have a range of eco-friendly Christmas designs from proposal cards to ‘soon to be married,’ from the new couple and the standard merry Christmas & happy new year’ cards!

 

 

Christmas proposal

Pop the question this Christmas and start planning your incredible eco-friendly wedding! We have a range of unique eco-friendly Christmas proposal gifts so that your special moment can be treasured. Have you thought of popping the question using a Christmas tree bauble? Just imagine your partner’s face when they see one of our wooden proposal baubles on the tree Christmas morning!

 

Eco-friendly Christmas stockings & gifts

Choose an eco-friendly stocking that can be reused for many more Christmas’ to come! Although there’s no point in filling an eco-friendly stocking with gifts that are plastic, non-recyclable and not earth friendly! Vegan chocolate, sweets and fudge are a perfect way to fill your eco-friendly Christmas stocking. Also, eco-friendly ‘DIY’ craft kits are great stocking fillers! It would keep both children and adults busy until the Christmas dinner is ready!

 

 

Vegan Christmas food

It’s never been easier to have a vegan Christmas dinner! This year supermarkets have a more substantial range of vegan Christmas food. You can even get vegan ‘no pigs in blankets!’ If you’re not prepared to swap the turkey for a vegetable wellington don't worry! You can still do your bit for the environment by including vegan elements to your Christmas menu. What about including vegan canapés, a starter or dessert?

Eco-friendly Christmas crackers

Swap your plastic coated & plastic filled Christmas crackers for eco-friendly Christmas crackers! Look out for plantable, recycled, reusable or wooden Christmas crackers that are packaged plastic free. Eco-friendly Christmas crackers should always be filled with edible, plastic free, reusable and practical gifts.

Hope these ideas will inspire you to have the best eco-friendly Christmas yet!
