Happy Low Waste Holiday

As I’m becoming increasingly aware of my climate impact, approaching this holiday season from a sustainable lens was an important goal for me. Here’s just a little bit of advice, including some last minute gift and wrapping ideas, that I have for you this season.Remember, the small things always count!

Gifts

DIY: sugar scrub

I love the idea of homemade gifts, especially ones with practical purposes too! This DIY sugar scrub recipe is so simple. You can use clean jars you have laying around or reusable mason jars to gift them in.

It makes a great last minute gift! I’ll be making mine soon and will  update when I do!

Stocking stuffer: Bee’s Wrap.

A perfect gift for the one who’s always on the go, bee’s wrap is an all natural alternative to plastic wrap/ bags for food storage. You can find them in stores like Target and REI or online at bee’s wrap website. 

Something a little nicer: JORD wooden watch

JORD checks the box for our low waste holiday because they’re beautifully crafted and sustainability sourced wooden watches!

Wrapping

Brown paper bags

The perfect sustainable material (that you probably already have at home!) to achieve this timeless gift wrapping look.

Dish towels

Another great reusable option for wrapping. Not only that, it makes for two gifts in one!

Decor

For my DIY decor that lasted me through the last few years, I’m going to throw it back to a post from 2017: Very Merry Mason Jars! 

Holiday cards

My eco-friendly tip for holiday cards? Make sure they’re made from recycled materials! There are a lot of options out there, but I personally like to check out shops around town to support local artists and sustainably sourced materials all at once!
