8 Easy Ways to Make Your Holidays More Eco-Friendly
'Tis the season to be more conscious of your holiday habits. As much as the winter season evokes feelings of nostalgia for Christmases past, all too often, the months of November and December are a time of waste and excess. To make this year's holiday even more eco-friendly, we tapped event designer Emily Clarke and photographer Brian Leahy, the founders of Nine10 Creative, for their decorating tips for sustainable celebrations that wow.
According to Clarke and Leahy, the secret to a well-designed gathering lies in upcycling items you already own. "Sustainable decor doesn’t have to look crafty or DIY—anything goes. The goal is to give everyday items a second life. Consider what's in the recycling bin, and what boxes you have lying around that remind you of something else." Instantly elevate your next holiday dinner or gift exchange with these sustainable tips.
