The Source Bulk Foods – Zero Waste Consumption
The Christmas count-down is on! Here at The Source Bulk Foods, we understand that this time of year can be stressful. Whether you’re hosting Christmas lunch at yours or not, there’s still plenty of things to do to make sure everyone has an enjoyable day – including you! Today, we’ll be sharing our four simple tricks for easing your Christmas to-do list.
  • Decorations

    Earlier in the month, we shared our favourite D.I.Y Christmas tree decorations to make with the kids. Mums, it’s your turn to get creative with these gorgeous table decorations!

    • Floral Table Runner: Here is a gorgeous and simple table centrepiece that brings an Australian feel to the festive season!
    • Cinnamon Stick Candles: Here is an easy way to give your Christmas a romantic feel that will look and smell amazing!
    • Rosemary Wreath Place cards: These beautiful place cards are super simple to make and gives your table a naturally festive feel.
  • Christmas Tree

    This year, don’t buy a plastic, artificial Christmas tree. Instead, decorate an indoor or outdoor plant with the kids. By doing so, you’ll avoid adding to the planet’s increasing plastic waste problem and save money. Plus, the kids will love going on a treasure hunt to choose the perfect plant or tree to decorate.

  • Gift Giving

    This year, we encourage you to give gifts that truly come from the heart; gifts that are kind to the planet and your pocket. Giving gift vouchers for body treatments like massages, tickets to shows or unique experiences are a great way to show someone that you care about them. If you really want to give a tangible gift, give a well-thought-out gift, something someone really needs. As a rule of thumb, only give gifts that are handmade, edible or second-hand. If you need some inspiration, check out The Source Bulk Foods’ Gift Guide. In it, you’ll find our favourite zero-waste ideas for him and her.

  • Gift Wrapping

    Single-use wrapping paper gets torn off in a matter of seconds, strewn all around the lounge room then thrown in the bin never to be used again. Instead of buying wrapping paper this year, reuse any leftover wrapping you might have saved or wrap your gifts in newspaper, fabric or hessian bags. Instead of using plastic sticky tap, tie your gifts with a reusable ribbon, twine or string. You could even add a few sprigs of rosemary or thyme for decoration. As for Christmas cards, write a list of relatives you’d like the kids to make Christmas cards for, then set out the pencils and coloured paper and watch their creative minds soar! We’re certain Grandma and Grandpa would prefer a handmade card over a store bought card!

Christmas is a time for sharing experiences with our loved ones, but we can also spread the love within our communities and our planet too!
