Tips for building a more sustainable Christmas

Choose a synthetic pine or decide to build your own Christmas tree with recyclable materials, such as cardboard, metal and plastic. The decorations can also be a task for the whole family and thus reuse fabric, paper, glass or even used coffee capsules and bottle caps.

Christmas has already arrived in commerce and in our homes. Let's talk about Christmas consumption!

More than ever, in this very unusual year, are we all going to build sustainable and supportive parties?

We can all be more sustainable consumers. It is not difficult and may involve you in another spirit.

Let's start with the Christmas tree

Choose a synthetic pine or decide to build your own Christmas tree with recyclable materials, such as cardboard, metal and plastic. The decorations can also be a task for the whole family and thus reuse fabric, paper, glass or even used coffee capsules and bottle caps.

In addition to monetary savings, the environment thanks and contributes to a greener Christmas.

Betting on do-it-yourself, the whole family will be able to design their postcards for happy holidays taking advantage of waste and recycling materials

Being supportive is easy!

Make your list of offers to suit your recipients and take advantage of the special Christmas sales and be in solidarity with those in need, and you can even make donations in your IRS to social solidarity institutions that need the support of everyone or volunteer. To express our affection we only need to offer symbolic memories and attention.

Spend less and offer more by establishing the “secret friend” system within the family or offer a gift for the whole family that everyone can share (a “family movie”, a collective game for the youngest) and share clothing or toys that the family left out.

Be creative and original! Adopt an abandoned animal or offer a voucher with our time, we suggest to young consumers to offer a package of explanations for the youngest or their support to the family as baby-sitters.
