Eco-Friendly, Green and Unique Ideas For The Holidays

By   October 6, 2015

Eco-FriendlyThe holidays are coming and while we celebrate Peace On Earth and Goodwill Toward Men, we’ll be decking the halls with holly and lights too. But why go with the normal dead trees (yes, they’re green now, but they are going to die) and energy draining lights we always do? We have some eco-friendly ideas to share with you for your yuletide decorating this year. They may be a little off the normal path, but if you like the unique look, then this article is for you.

Light It Up With LED Candles

Candle light is one of the warmest holiday things we all love. They give any room a warm ambiance that says “Happy Holidays”. But they are also dangerous around kids and pets and for any one that has asthma or other breathing problems they can make the holiday miserable. Go with an eco-friendly alternative are LED candles. They are not only eco-friendly but they are lightweight making them easier to handle, there isn’t any flame so they are safer and they are reusable infinitely!

Eco-Friendly Wreathes

If your tradition is to have a fresh made wreath on your front door, try going eco-friendly this year and skip the tree branch cutting.  A great DIY wreath can be made from fabric or paper scraps.  Just go to and you’ll find a lot of great DIY ideas on using left over materials.

Holiday Lights Go LED

If the LED lights in the past haven’t caught your holiday spirit, take a look at them again this year. They are brighter and have more colors now. They have that holiday, omni-direction glow and even better –they are lower in prices now too! You can light up your house eco-friendly, save money and deck those halls!

Decorate Your Table With Faux Cedar

Pine is one of the holiday scents we all love, fake or real. But if you’re looking to be eco-friendly, cedar pine is a much better material. It has that rustic look that is all the rage now and it is reusable too.

A Rosemary Christmas Tree

If you’re looking for an eco-friendly and unique Christmas tree, go with one you can eat after the holidays! A Christmas tree made from rosemary will be just as fragrant, it can be decorated the same and you’ll have a delicious herb afterward!

Look For Other Eco-Friendly Tree Options

The market is full of other eco-friendly tree options today. Like the Moderno Christmas tree that is made from recycled cardboard. Or the Tannenboing Recycled Aluminum Tree that can be packed away flat and used again next year.
