Plastic-Free Decor & Gift Ideas

Plastic-Free Decor & Gift Ideas

It's December- our favorite month of the year! We got our tree and put on the lights this past weekend. Then I found a couple of dried up tangerines buried in the bottom of the fridge- the timing couldn't be more perfect! We are making dried orange slices! 

We did this last year too. We used the dried orange slices in place of bows for the Christmas presents. It successfully added some flair to our brown-paper wrapped presents and it impressed some friends! My son was particularly excited when I told him that we were going to make some dried orange slice ornaments this year. Since we had a bigger tree, we would need more decorations!  

Last year we took our time baking the orange slices slow while we are roasting some other vegetables for dinner. This year I used a small toaster oven rather than the big oven since I wasn't baking anything else. The toaster oven got hot too quickly and I burnt some of the orange slices! So make sure you don't lose patience and bake it on the low temp and slowly.




Holidays can be challenging to maintain a sustainable lifestyle. We are trying our best to find a balance ourselves, and we are committed to get you covered too! Our shampoo bars and Scrufah will make great stocking stuffers. (Go ahead and fill your own stocking, it’s so much better!) We also have two gift sets available that come in reusable cotton gift bags where we donate part of the sales to Feeding America, on top of annual commitment of 1% profit that goes to Conservation International.  We now also offer local delivery in the Fort Greene, Clinton Hill, Park Slope, Prospect Heights areas in Brooklyn, New York. 🚴  

Please order by December 15th for guaranteed delivery by Christmas!
