“I’m Sick Of Giving People Things They Don’t Want”: 10 Ways To Have A More Sustainable, Less Wasteful Holiday Season

The sisters behind the Instagram account Sustain Yourself tell BuzzFeed that, “Holiday decor can have a massive environmental impact, especially when it’s not reused for further holidays.” For a more environmentally friendly bit of holiday cheer, try using compostable items. 

“One great decoration is baking orange slices and stringing them on twine to put on your tree, mantel, or across windows — you can also do this with dried cranberries, and compost them at the end of the holiday season. If you want a Christmas tree, make sure you check if your city offers Christmas tree disposal services via compost, or consider thrifting a fake tree to reuse every Christmas for years to come,” says the duo.
