Make your Christmas a sustainable one!

The festive season is upon us. Christmas is a time for celebration and indulgence, but it doesn’t mean having to create a Santa-sized carbon footprint. Here are our top tips for a sustainable Christmas!
 
Gifts that keep on giving

  • Create a vege or herb planter box. It is a wonderful way to give a gift that will keep giving!
  • Gift your time. They say there’s no greater gift than time. Create a personal voucher for a massage, house clean or home-cooked dinner.
  • Give your gift to a charity. Organisations like UNICEF allow you to buy gifts for loved ones that go to those who need it most.
  • Fancy yourself as a bit of a whizz in the kitchen? Even if you’re not likely to become the next Jamie Oliver or Nigella Lawson, homemade edibles like fudge parcels can make wonderful gifts that won’t cost the earth!
 
Shop Local & Reuse

  • If you are buying gifts, try and shop local to reduce your carbon footprint. Alternatively, buy from charity shops or Trade Aid – at least you know your hard earned dollar will be going somewhere it is needed.
  • Buy the produce for your Christmas feast from your local farmer’s market or green grocer. Not only are seasonal fruit and veges cheaper to buy, they don’t have to travel far to reach your dinner plate!
  • Recycle wrapping paper and cards. If you haven’t stocked up on used wrapping paper, ribbons and cards from last year, make sure you do this time. Homemade cards are an excellent alternative to store-bought. All you need is some recycled card or coloured paper, glitter and glue pens. Great fun for the kids too!

Make your own decorations
Here are a couple of Chrissy decorations you can make at home!
 

  • Collect some pinecones and decorate them with paint, glitter or make artificial snow using a mixture of talcum powder and granulated sugar.
  • Combine flour, salt and water to make your own play dough. Use cookie cutters or model pieces individually to create stars, moons and other Christmas symbols.
  • Woven grapevines or any bendable branches from yard trimmings are ideal for wreath-making. Use an old wire hanger to create a circle then fasten the vines around it and add foliage for decoration!
