Ecological actions – 5 Tips & tricks

Choose candles made from soy or beeswax are more environmentally friendly as they are biodegradable – perfect idea for eco gifts too.
❯ Use towels on the table. Do not use napkins or kitchen paper on the table, but cloth towels that you can wash and reuse.
❯ Give away leftovers. Portion them and give them to your guests on their way out.
❯ Ornaments can come directly from nature. Decorate your tree with pine cones, cinnamon sticks, etc. You can also use edible decorations such as lollipops.
