Have a Very Green Christmas and a Sustainable New Year

Not Everything that Glitters…is Good for the Environment!

As Christmas rolls around again this year the seasonal allure of glitter and tinsel can be hardto resist. It’s natural to want to decorate your home or business to get you and your customers in the Christmas spirit. Keeping up with festive trends has become even harder in recent years with the explosion of social media marketing and the desire to one up your virtual neighbour with the latest theme. Christmas can be just as beautiful whilst also keeping a low carbon footprint. You don’t need to splash the cash every year to achieve your winter wonderland and BloomsArt is going to tell you how!

Reuse and Recycle

It is no longer fashionable to use something once and throw it away, the new trend is about reducing the amount of waste that goes to land fill – so have a look at what you already have and see if it can be spruced up with a bit of DIY. If you need to buy something new try to shop from second hand/charity shops – they have a great selection of bits, and you can find some real bargains as well. Faux flowers are a great investment for the festive season because they can be displayed for however long you need with little to no maintenance andthen stored away when you no longer need them. You can reuse them as many times as you like! If you don’t have the space to store synthetic floral arrangements, then BloomsArt offer a service that lets you rent an installation and then picks it up when you no longerneed it. So, you’ve got no excuse.

Tradition Vs Trend

Plants and flowers are traditional décor for the festive season, holly, ivy, and mistletoe are classically Christmas. However, with silk flowers you can choose whatever your heart desires as they don’t depend on seasonal blooming. You can also have flowers in any shade that you like, this makes it easy to match your current décor or theme. The design possibilities are endless with BloomsArt faux flowers, you can stick with traditional Christmassy themes or go completely alternative. If you want something in the middle, you can choose your favourite festive flower in a completely wacky colour.

Whatever it is that you are looking for this holiday season, make sure you keep it sustainable.
