Environmentally Friendly Christmas Gifts to Make A House A Home
Wednesday, 20 October 2021 | Admin
We often strive to be eco-friendly in many areas of our lives – whether it’s swapping out old day-to-day products for sustainable alternatives or spreading awareness with friends and family, we can be confident in saying that we are making steps towards change. But there’s one very important place that often needs more attention than we realise – the home!
Whilst homes may not pollute the planet as much as factories or corporations, there are several little ways that our homes could damage the environment. Most households are on a grid that provides energy from a non-sustainable source, like oil or gas, and when we build, use and demolish houses, we actually erode soil, disrupt habitats, deplete natural resources, pollute air and water and use up land. By altering what we use within the home, we avoid catapulting the negative affects into irreparable territory.
Our range of ethical homewares contains products that not only promote sustainability but make for wonderful Christmas gifts! Christmas is the perfect time to encourage family and friends to make the swap to eco-friendly alternatives so we can protect the planet, one home at a time.
