Sustainable decorating at Christmas

Being green or sustainable at Christmas can be really difficult. Small changes can make your Christmas better for our environment and community. Here is the Reviva Reuse Shop guide to sustainable decorating at Christmas:

1. Choose second-hand

Buying second-hand saves money and stops new items from being manufactured. That’s good for the environment and for your budget.
 
 

2. Avoid glitter 

We know it’s pretty but glitter is made from little pieces of plastic that end up in our soil, waterways or landfills. Avoid glitter and choose natural, recyclable or compostable decorating options to make your wrap and decorations more sustainable.
 

3. Upcycle

upcycling is fun and creates unique, interesting and beautiful decorations. Explore your home or old decorations to find pieces that could be transformed and given a second life. A coat of paint, some clever stickers or several items put together can reinvent an old piece into something brand new.
 

4. Think natural

Driftwood, pinecones, sticks and live trees are a great way to decorate sustainably. The best part? When Christmas is done they can be composted, reused or recycled.
 

5. Rethink your wrapping

Textiles like sheets, towels, fabric and scarves make great wrapping options without the waste. Explore your local charity shop to discover textile options that are more sustainable.

6. Have fun and get creative

Christmas doesn’t have to cost the earth.
