Recently a friend of mine from college messaged me and asked if I would do a post on how to be minimal waste in the holiday season. With gifts, parties and all the festivities in between, it can be really challenging to limit your waste. So I’ve compiled a series of post to help you get creative about how to minimize your waste and still celebrate well.
I will be writing posts on how to limit your waste by:
creative gift giving
alternative gift wrapping
DIY ideas for gifts so that you’re not always buying new
how to talk to your family or friends about your minimal waste goals
how to limit waste while in the thick of holiday parties/celebrations
I hope this series encourages you and gets your creative juices flowing. I hope that rather than feeling shame for not being totally zero waste this season, that you feel excited to do your best at limiting your waste where you can. Progress is the point. Allow this to be an opportunity for intentionality, mindfulness, and chances to connect with others about important issues that don’t disappear in the face of holiday cheer.
