Are you feeling overwhelmed this holiday season? Why not. Everyone is excited about the holidays. But have you ever thought about sustainable holiday while enjoying Christmas or New Year parties?

The concept of ‘save the planet’ can’t be aligned with ‘Holiday Celebration’. However, there is a direct relation that exists between them. The impact of holidays with its excessive shopping, travelling and over the top celebration is causing the acceleration of climate change. The holiday season cannot be a burden for the planet. Our Earth is paying the price for our enjoyment.

Now, it is crucial to understand how we do our part to save the Earth. Already, we have done severe damage in several ways. There is always a way to look for alternatives, and an eco-friendly celebration is one of the best possible solutions.

Everyone must break the misconception that an eco-festival stands for a dull celebration. A Green Holiday can be extravagant, but it depends on how you plan it.

This blog is a definitive guide for planning a sustainable holiday season.

Begin with Christmas Tree:

Sustainable Holiday - Christmas Tree

No one can negotiate with the Christmas tree during the holiday season. However, choosing a Christmas tree is usually a contentious topic. Various options are available on the market, including natural and artificial trees. While artificial trees are long-lasting and reusable, it is possible to argue that chopping down trees contributes to climate change. However, using a natural tree has a lower environmental impact than using an artificial tree.

Buying a fresh tree from a nearby nursery is an excellent option for a Christmas tree. It allows you to keep your family tradition alive while simultaneously lowering your environmental footprint.

A smaller version of a real tree can be reusable for two to three years.

Decoration Is the Main Attraction:

Sustainable Decoration

The decorations used throughout the holiday season contribute directly to global warming and climate change. Christmas and New Year aren’t complete without decoration. The approach of enhancing the appearance of your space is creative art.

To address the problem, one must be resourceful and unique. Reusable and repurposed materials can be used for decorations. You may beautify your home with sustainable materials and rock at home decor.

Food Must be Extra Delicious:Food Waste

Every holiday season, food wastage is a major concern all around the world. When it comes to holidays, food is at the centre of the festivities. But how does food impact the environment?

For one lavish meal, numerous kinds of waste are generated. If waste management is inadequate, the consequences would be far more severe.

So, while preparing your exquisite holiday dinners, make sure that no food is wasted. (Donate food)

There Is No Holiday Season without Gifts:

Sustainable Gifts

Choosing a present is difficult, but sustainable gifting is much more difficult. Handmade presents are far superior to store-bought gifts in terms of sustainability. A personalised present is infused with feelings of love, respect, and effort. Gifts made of recyclable and reusable materials also help reduce non-decomposable waste.

Sustainable Wrapping

After selecting the perfect gift, now, you need to wrap it. Gift wrapping is challenging because people will only keep it for a while. But if we talk about sustainable gift wrapping, choose sustainable materials or something that can be reused to wrap gifts. There are several options to choose from. For example, Furoshiki (Japanese wrapping cloth), cardboard boxes, gift bags, etc. So, this holiday season, go-green while thinking of gifts.

No Lights, No Holidays:

Sustainable Lights

During the holiday season, energy consumption is higher than any other time of the year. So, it is necessary to shift to candles or earthen lamps that don’t cause harm to mother nature. But if you seek for missing spark in your decorations, add LED lights to it. LED lights are energy-efficient, reusable, and locally manufactured.

Go-green with Dress:

Sustainable-Dress

Your holiday checklist is incomplete without a dress. You can definitely go shopping and purchase beautiful dresses for yourself and your family. However, if go-green is what you think of the dresses is the trickiest part of all. How do you think you will celebrate a sustainable holiday without a not-so-sustainable dress? Impossible right? Well, fear not. We have some amazing ideas to help you with.

Also, multiple sustainable clothing brands offer you the go-green concept for your dress. So, even in a sustainable way, you can get a party dress.

Community Services:

Community-Service

You can enrol any local social service group and assist them in helping people in need. Also, you can prepare a giving box with homemade cookies, a card, etc. and distribute it in local hospitals or old-age homes. This will definitely brighten up their day.

      So interesting, holiday is a time that brings friends and family together and it worths the time.

      The Panel Station неплохая платформа- жаль, что часто опаздываю на опрос. Что касается искусственной или натуральной ели- до сих пор четкого ответа нет. Да его, наверное, и не может быть. Во многом зависит от региона проживания. У нас под С.Петербургом- сплошные леса. Доставка в город недорогая. Леспромхозы, после вырубки, обязаны затем посадить новые деревья. И другое дело для юга страны, где ели почти не растут. Тут, конечно , приоритет искусственным. Для меня актуально внедрение светодиодных ламп, не только на гирляндах, но и дома в квартире. На даче как то заменил на светодиодные-но через 3 месяца вышли из строя. Прочитал, что они бояться перепада температур- буду знать теперь.

      Sustainable holiday can help you to relieve stress and k ve a happy life. You can enjoy by doing a number of chores which can help to make environment pollution free and also by helping helpless or Elders people of the society.
      You must spend a few hours of your time with elder people because they have the experience of life and can help you to fight from the hardships of the life.

    Eco friendly plans are lifesaving and cheap. However, question is, how many of us have standards/morals that require money saving decisions? I would love to think that the way I’ve been moved to try an ecofriendly holiday, is the same way everyone will feel.
    I wish this information would be shared to media, and other social platforms that would educate humanity on serious grounds. It would save us from a future of agony

      Nosotros para navidad rehusamos adornos y las luces del árbol solo las prendemos durante 30 minutos o menos y luego no se prenden hasta el día de navidad. Y para la cena este año optamos por pedir comida y solo lo que hibamos a comer para no generar residuos.

    Debemos pensar en el planeta, ser más ecológicos al momento de comprar regalos y gastar la energía lo más que se pueda dejando un rato en la noche las luces de navidad y apagarlas al día siguiente. Hay muchas formas de apoyar al planeta que es nuestro hogar

  40. There is no greater satisfaction and pleasure than spending the holidays in an environmentally sustainable way. My preference, instead of spending money on unnecessary decorations, lights, is to use it to support environmental initiatives. During the Christmas and New Year period, I donate more than usual the money I earn from filling out surveys to environmental causes. This is becoming my Christmas tradition, which I also encourage others to do.

  41. Consistency is one of your biggest strengths. I can always count on you to treat all of your tasks with importance while also recognizing the value of prioritizing. Keep up the good work!
