Christmas is known as the best time of year but with billions of cards sent out and thousands of trees cut down it's also the most wasteful. Here are a few videos to help direct us to be more mindful when purchasing gifts, receiving them and decorating our space. Lets maximize our time with family , laughter, snuggles and experiences rather than stressing over material things.
Let us know if you have any eco friendly practices for the holidays and please share these videos with friends and family!
This topic is a favorite of mine. Furoshiki is a Japanese gift wrapping method that is eco friendly and adorable! You can use lots of different fabrics, including a scarf as shown below!
Sometimes gifts aren't physical, sometimes they are experiences, gift of knowledge, or the gift of time. Listen to some of these "out of the box" ideas.
How about going natural for your decorations this year!
Both gift ideas AND wrapping in this great video by Jamie Kate.
Here's a BONUS video that we couldn't help but share. She has great alternatives to holiday cards, decorations and party tips.
Enjoy the holidays!! Stay green my friends.
