Our tips for a sustainable Christmas

2 min reading time

We all wish we had a Merry Christmas. But let's be honest, despite good intentions, it often turns into a consumer festival. A lot is bought and then unfortunately a lot is thrown away. In order to make the end of the year more conscious and sustainable, we have put together some ideas for you here for a mindful and sustainable Christmas.

Enjoy sustainably

For many people, traditional meat dishes are part of Christmas, like presents, the Christmas tree and of course Santa Claus. In order to enjoy more sustainably, we have put together a selection of delicious Christmas recipes for you. To the recipes

Decorate sustainably

Pine cones, twigs, moss and berry bushes decorate our forests and gardens at Christmas and Advent. Why not decorate our home with it too? So you can avoid unnecessary plastic and collect the beautiful natural materials during a leisurely walk in the forest and let your soul unwind. An absolute win-win situation.

Give sustainably

Every year before Christmas the question arises: What do you give your loved ones? Our tip for sustainable giving: donations to charitable organizations, gifts made from sustainable materials or time for shared experiences. Here is a list of our favorites:

- Donations to charitable foundations
- Shared experiences
- Vegan cooking class
- Our merch items, shirts and hoodies
- Reusable water bottles and storage containers
- Sponsorships for animals
- Oilcloths for covering food
- Self-sewn pillow made from old T-shirts
- Homemade bath bombs or soaps

    Packaging sustainably

    And every year the creative wrapping paper chaos greets you - there is paper, glitter and tinsel everywhere. Lovingly and beautifully wrapped presents under the Christmas tree are an absolute must. Instead of having to buy new wrapping paper, you can use sustainable materials here too.
    You can create beautiful packages using recycled wrapping paper saved from last year, old paper, self-painted paper, beautiful textile leftovers, pretty jam jars or maybe even reusable tin cans.

    There are no limits to your imagination and there are many other ways to make the holidays more sustainable and fair.

    We wish you wonderful holidays!
