So, without much delay, read about those amazing tips and ideas here:
Buy a real Christmas tree
Looking for an eco-friendly Christmas tree? Buying a real Christmas tree is much more sustainable than artificial ones, as it ensures and guarantees that your tree has been grown to set environmental standards. Fake trees are mostly made of non-degradable petroleum products. Real trees, on the other hand, can be recycled, replanted and repotted.Wrap gifts with recycled paper
Do not buy metallic or glossy wrapping papers as these are difficult to reuse. Many of us don’t realise that gift rolls and sheets contain non-recyclable elements like foil, glitter or plastic. Opt for recycled wrapping paper or try wrapping with fabric scraps, old newspapers or calendars instead. That can be reused again.Send eco-friendly and plastic-free Christmas gifts and cards
Make sure to buy certified plastic-free gifts and eco-friendly logo cards. This is the best way to determine if a product is environmentally-friendly, Look out for eco logos. When choosing material gifts, go local and opt for homegrown brands and eco-friendly options.Don’t use plastic wreaths for decoration
Avoid wreaths with plastic accessories and glittery decorations. These are made using non-sustainable materials and can be harmful for birds if hung up outside. Go for a real, fresh wreath made using seasonal and natural foliage.Avoid wasting your food
When Christmas arrives, we can be a little more wasteful. One option is to buy less. You can also plan to serve Turkey and any other cuts of meat in the starters. Surplus meat and turkey can be sliced, wrapped and frozen to be used later.
