It’s again the time to celebrate Christmas, and it’s not just about decorating a tree, but it’s also a means to connect with your loved ones. It’s the time when we experience amazing family reunions. It’s the time that’s unforgettable.
But unfortunately, Christmas week generates more plastic waste than any other week in a year. According to research conducted at Stanford, Americans produce 1 million extra tons of plastic waste in Christmas week. Drastic, right?
Another similar research shows that Americans throw 25% more trash during Thanksgiving and New year’s holidays. So, these are enough facts to get frustrated by the increasing pollution.
We’ve taken a step to minimize this waste by introducing our wide range of eco-friendly dinnerware items. Moreover, we’ve also gathered some fantastic tips for you to try this Christmas week to make your holidays greener, more eco-friendly.
Go with Eco-friendly Christmas Tree
You don’t have to bring a Christmas tree inside. You can also decorate the one in your backyard. It only takes secure electric wiring and a bunch of LED strips. If you can’t do that somehow, you can build your own by using wooden planks and make a hierarchy by nailing them.
You can also use old newspapers and fold them in such a way that they depict a cone tree.
However, there are tons of different ideas to make eco-friendly Christmas trees at home by not promoting more plastic or cutting down a real tree.
Believe it or not, studies show that you can reduce the carbon footprints to a very significant amount by only shifting to a vegan or vegetarian diet. Christmas has become a major event where people consume more meat than usual. It’s quite understandable that when friends gather around, BBQ becomes a compulsion.
But the menu can be changed to make it greener and more nature-friendly.
Use Eco-friendly Dinnerware
Using eco-friendly dinnerware is a great option to make your table look more natural. You can serve your main course in bagasse eco-friendly sugarcane plates. We provide compostable plates for Christmas that are completely nature-friendly.
Moreover, our eco-friendly disposable plates are disposable, which helps you make your party hassle-free. These disposable plates will eventually decompose naturally and won’t contribute to pollution.
We also provide palm leaf biodegradable plates that can be used for serving the main course or salad as well.
You can choose between different sizes to throw a party loaded with eco-friendly dinnerware items.
Appreciate Plastic-Free Gifts
Christmas looks incomplete with gifts. You can ask your guests in a very polite and kind way to avoid gifts made of plastic.
You can make them realize that this year’s Christmas shouldn’t go against nature like the one in the past. You can choose different tones to convey your message in order to encourage them to bring eco-friendly gifts.
Kids love to get surprises, and you can surprise them by giving them tickets to a movie. However, there are hundreds of green options to choose from - a gift doesn’t always have to be a product!
