TIPS FOR HOSTING A SUSTAINABLE FESTIVE CELEBRATION

This festive season, we’re giving you our tips for hosting a sustainable Christmas celebration that will impress your guests and have a positive impact on the environment. From sourcing wholesome produce to dreaming up thoughtful gifts, we’re sharing everything you need to know to host a memorable gathering.

A TIMELESS STATEMENT 

This season is the most popular time that people want to redecorate their dining space just in time for their family and friends to arrive. It’s easy to get caught up in the Christmas rush and make furniture decisions that you might question later on. Which is why we always recommend taking your time to research the materials and craftsmanship of your new dining piece to ensure that it becomes a timeless statement within your home for decades to come. Discover our dining tables and benches made from sustainably sourced materials, with a complete chain of custody from the forest to your home online now.

CHOOSING A TREE

This year why not do things a little differently with a Christmas tree that will bring life to your interiors long after the celebrations have finished? An Olive tree is a timeless alternative that will thrive in your home for many years to come while reducing your environmental impact during the festive season. They are also easy to decorate and add the perfect amount of greenery to your interiors.

WRAPPING CONSCIOUSLY

Did you know that Australians use more than 150,000km of wrapping paper during the festive season? You can significantly reduce your environmental impact over Christmas by choosing to use alternatives such as recycled wrapping paper or gift boxes that can be transformed into a decorative piece when gift giving.

SOURCING ETHICALLY 

As one of the most important elements of Christmas celebrations, we recommend sourcing your produce sustainably. There are plenty of local farmer’s markets where you can select organic produce that supports your local community and reduces your environmental footprint while providing you with an abundant feast. Another handy tip is to finalise your guest list ahead of time so that you know exactly how much produce you need, which will help minimise waste throughout your festive celebrations.
