Festive Season Guide: Environment Victoria
How to make yours a happy green holidays
It really is the season to be jolly. It’s the rare time of year where after a long year of slogging it out we enjoy kicking back, spoiling others and eating ourselves silly! And we deserve to. But with all the waste that goes along with it, it’s not such a joyous time for our environment.
So this handy guide will help you hold onto the good bits of the silly season, while being a little gentler on the planet. It’s still about having a great time with plenty of food and presents, but without all the waste. Because when you remember what your priorities are, it’s actually surprisingly easy.
Or simply follow our quick links…
Decorations: Lets kick off with some handy decorating hints. Because there’s nothing like a chrissy tree or a splash of sparkle to get you into the spirit!
Green gifts: There’s nothing worse than giving your friends and family things they don’t need or want or will be broken come Boxing Day. Get them some of these much more awesome things which of course, have a lighter impact on the planet.
Cards and wrapping: There’s no reason why your wrapping can’t look beautiful while being super green.
Food, glorious food: You can make a big difference to your environmental impact by making some smart food choices. Here are some tasty ideas.
And that’s a wrap from us here. We truly hope you have a magical, relaxing, rejuvenating time that’s full of love, laughs and green cheer.
