The holidays are the time of year when we spend time with loved ones and take stock of all the blessings in our lives. The earth is an amazing treasure, so be sure to make holiday plans that are conscious of the impact you are having on the environment. These three companies will assist you in having a perfectly eco-luxury holiday!
The Living Christmas Co.
Instead of purchasing, and eventually throwing away, an artificial tree or cutting down a live tree, rent a living tree from The Living Christmas Co. The company will deliver your living tree to your home, rooted in a sturdy pot, and then pick the tree up again after the holidays are over. The company rents the potted trees as many years as possible, but and donates them afterwards to a tree planting organization or become part of an Urban Reforestation Project. Every tree from The Living Christmas Co. will continue to grow for future generations.
Viva Verra is an online retailer dedicated to fair-trade practices, and selling recycled, natural, American products. Visit their holiday shop for decor, serving ware, holiday plants and more! We especially like their holiday pillows and recycled glassware.
If you choose to send real holiday cards this year, save a few trees and use recycled paper. Paper Culture‘s cards are made exclusively from 100% post-consumer recycled paper. The company also plants a tree with every order; they have planted over 400,000 so far. You can design your own holiday card or engage one of the company’s designers to assist you.
We hope these ideas have encouraged you to make choices this holiday season that are both festive and good for the environment! Need eco-luxury gift ideas? Try our list of eco-friendly luxury holiday gifts.
