So I thought I’d share some holiday tips this week while folks are scrambling – there is a better way, for you and the planet!
Day 3 of 5: Sustainable Holiday Designs!
The links below showcase some tips to minimize waste, and maximize (natural) green in your house, while also potentially sprucing up the outside, to help out some winter critters, too! This first link below gives some ideas on outdoor decoration using fully compostable materials, discovered via Not Far From The Tree (an awesome resource in every season!) on Twitter. Be sure to check out the link at the end of the article itself for more awesome decorating ideas! http://bit.ly/2C1UgAI
Here is another link, this time to “spruce up” (literally, use some spruce clippings!) the inside of your home for the holidays, with little to no waste, and a lot of beauty: http://bit.ly/2BrErj1
Another solid guide for home creations comes from the Nature’s Path (those granola bar folks – so delicious, but I can’t buy it with all that packaging, so I make my own now) blog. The ideas are almost all zero-waste, with a double bonus at the end, a “free guide to sustainable shopping” (connecting to yesterday’s post!) and “17 plant-based recipes” (connecting to tomorrow’s post!): http://bit.ly/2pevBE1
There are so many other designs, ideas, and creations to talk about, but this is more to have a conversation, so please share your green decorating tips, tricks, links, or even pictures of results up and ready in your home, below!
Coming up tomorrow, a big, fat, delicious post on all things FOOD! Making edibles for the holidays that are light on the wallet (mostly) and the planet, while tasting amazing. There will be food waste tips too, of course!
