Ditching Plastic & Going Green this Christmas
Christmas can be a very wasteful time of year, finding ways to cut down on plastic can make a big impact. Here we have a couple of ways you’ll be able to easily change your plastic consumption over the holiday period.
- Switch to gummed paper tape or washi tape instead of plastic “sticky tape”. We use printed Daily Peach gummed paper tape on all our shipped orders. Read a little more about how we pack our orders here
- Use natural tree decor. Dried orange garlands, paper stars and popcorn strings are all classics for a reason! Biodegradable and beautiful, and the oranges give off a lovely fragrance while being dried in the oven or air fryer.
- Shop local. Shipping distances and international production contribute to greenhouse gasses. By supporting local production, you’re also contributing to South Africans earning fair wages and supporting local businesses.
