When it comes to Christmas decorations, feel free to be as creative as you like while allowing yourself to be mindful of sustainability. Sustainable Christmas decorations made of natural materials are the best choice because they help protect the environment, give a cosy feeling to your home, and look chic. Pine cones, fir branches, nuts, apples and oranges are synonymous with Christmas. They are perfect for DIY sustainable Christmas decorations, and you can reuse them every year.
Festive lighting is a core part of the Christmas season for many people. You can act ecologically and use LEDs instead. These use up to 90% less electricity than traditional light bulbs. Also, you could reduce the amount of glowing Christmas decorations. Just bring out the highlights occasionally. This will also save you money in the long-term.
Don’t forget the natural candle lighting this Christmas. Just be aware that many candles are made with petroleum or palm oil, which is a burden on our environment. To be more environmentally conscious use candles only sparingly or reuse candle scraps to pour new candles. Also, beeswax candles from regional beekeepers are a great and a sustainable alternative.
