One of my family’s favorite seasons is Christmas. We love spending time with relatives and friends to enjoy the holidays together. As a family leading an eco-friendly lifestyle, we see to it that our celebrations are not only easy on the environment but on our pockets, too.
Christmas doesn’t have to be expensive if done in the most eco-friendly fashion. For me, I always remain devoted to my guiding principles – reuse, reduce, and recycle. If things are likely to be beneficial to people, beneficial to Mother Earth, and beneficial to the community, then it must be good.
You’ll save a lot of time, effort, and a significant amount of money if you follow these Ingrid Callot nature-friendly celebration tips:
• Gift-giving. Many retailers sell natural goods, organic food, and other eco-friendly products. They are safe for you, your children, and the environment. The Internet is your bestfriend for this. Through the Web, you can find information on different shops that sell sustainable items.
• Charity. Another way of sharing is to give back to the community. Donate to your favorite cause. Bonus point: you don’t need to wrap your gifts! Offer gifts such as seedlings or plants. Try making a cute container garden from old toys.
• Green-decorating. Instead of buying plastic or non-biodegradable decorations, learn to think out of the box by creating your own. Use live plants, trees, and fruits that don’t easily spoil.
