Small changes can make a big difference when it comes to reducing our environmental footprint this Christmas.

Sustainability is super important to us at Festival Place, and we can help you care more and waste less by sharing our favourite eco-friendly Christmas decorations.

1. Have a crackin’ time: Add a personal touch to every place setting at your Christmas table with a box of 100% plastic free ‘fill-your-own' crackers from Marks & Spencer. Six gold-foiled crackers each come with a hat, joke, raffia ties, and a gold foil name tag, as well as instructions on how to add your own gifts. Everything in the pack is recyclable.

2. It’s a wrap: Your presents will certainly stand out under the tree with wrapping paper you create yourself! This paper comes with eight gift tags and a tree wooden stamper and black ink pad so you can design your own pattern. The wrap is recyclable, and the wooden stamp reusable.

Eco-friendly countdown: The Body Shop has four sustainable, reusable calendars to choose from this year, each with a festive pop-up design and jam-packed with everything from body butters and bath bubbles to lip balms and face masks. And once you’ve unboxed all the treats, the calendars can be reused as beautiful storage cabinets.
