I asked you all on instagram what you do to make YOUR holiday more sustainable.
And y’all delivered!!! I got so many great and inspiring responses. Of course, I had to make a blog post out of them. I think we can ALL take away some inspiration from this list!
Enjoy! If you have any more tips, leave them in the comments section!
I’ve been getting thrifted scarves and such to wrap presents in instead of paper!
Aquarium passes for people with kids.
Buy tickets to an experience or membership, instead of an item.
Supporting local artists!
Using re-usable wrapping paper & home-making gifts!
Buy good, sustainable, local coffee beans from roasters near you!
Donate to a cause that each person in your family would love!
Sponsoring family events instead of gifts. Laser tag and bowling together.
Making little zero-waste starter kits as stocking stuffers! With a mason jar + bamboo utensils + reusable straw.
Giving homemade/local edible gifts!
Carry chop sticks, reusable wear on the go! Making my own doterra gifts.
Use Sunday color comics as wrapping paper. This is really a tip for next year. Save the comics from each paper for a year.
I’m asking my family to not use wrapping paper.
We’re having a homemade Christmas and I always wrap with / reuse paper bags and newspapers.
Fair trade gifts (coffee, leather goods, jewelry, etc.)
My husband and I thrift at local shops regularly so we plan on a thrifted Christmas!
I’m pretty serious about using fair trade super & chocolate for all that holiday baking!
Using the app Good on You to find sustainable fashion and jewelry brands to gift people!
Making everyone essential oil rollers. Making the ladies face oils and the men beard oils.
I’m gifting reusable bags in the shape of fruit to all my my family members!
Instead of gifts, everyone is getting holiday spirit and cheer from me!
