11 Ways to make holiday memories Sustainably

As we enter the holiday season, it's the perfect time to make memories that are kind to the planet. Let's keep things simple and full of joy with these 11 easy ways to have an eco-friendly holiday celebration:

1. Wrap Gifts the Green Way

Forget fancy wrapping paper. Most mass-produced wrapping paper and gift bags are printed using unsustainable inks and coated with shiny foils — which are not recyclable. Use old maps, comics, or even scarves to wrap your gifts. Add a personal touch with colorful paper bows and natural decorations like leaves or pinecones.

2. Yummy and Earth-Friendly Feasts

Make your holiday meals extra special by using local and plant-based ingredients. It's not only good for the planet but also delicious and good for your health!

3. Choose a Real Christmas Tree

Go for a real tree instead of a plastic one. But don’t get just any tree: some growers use up to 40 different pesticides and even add chemical colorants! Ask where it comes from to make sure it's grown responsibly with fewer pesticides.

4. Light Up with LEDs

Swap your regular holiday lights for LED ones. They use 90% less energy. LEDs release very little heat and last about 200,000 hours. They save energy, last longer, and are kinder to your wallet.

5. Get Crafty with Decorations

Have fun making your own decorations from things you find at home. It's a fun way to add a personal touch to your holiday space. It’s also a great project to keep kids busy when they’re on break from school.

6. Send Cards That Give Back

Many cards get thrown away once the holidays are over. Pick cards made from recycled materials or send e-cards. Some e-cards even help plant trees, making your greetings extra special.

7. Give Experiences or Help Others

Instead of things, consider giving experiences like tickets to shows or memberships. If you're feeling generous, donate to a charity in someone's name. Have an environmentalist on your list? Consider planting some trees in their name!

8. Recycle Your Christmas Tree

After the holidays, recycle your tree. Many places turn them into useful stuff like mulch or wood chips. So look into what local programs are available.

9. Fill Stockings with Thoughtful Stuff

Avoid cheap, disposable stuff for stockings. Fill them with homemade treats and small, meaningful gifts.

10. Stay Cozy and Save Energy

Bundle up in warm clothes, grab a blanket, and lower your thermostat a bit. Enjoy cozy moments with games and stories with your family and friends. After all, that's what the holiday season is all about.

11. Eco-Friendly Gifts

Consider giving gifts like Tidalove's toothpaste tablets, facial wash beans and body wash sheets. They're good for the Earth, and Tidalove even helps clean up ocean trash!

Let's make this holiday season special by choosing simple, eco-friendly ways to celebrate. Small steps can lead to big smiles and a healthier planet.

Wishing you a joyful and green holiday season!
