Do you think it’s possible living a plastic-free life? Here are a few ways to help you take a new approach.
Zero waste living comes with a conscious effort. We live in a world controlled by plastic packaging and changing the lifestyle or habits would take tremendous effort.
The future generation needs to see a plastic-free environment and in order for that to happen, small changes need to be implemented now. Plastic-free comes with an added cost, yet using these products enables you to take a step by step approach towards zero-waste living.
Residing without waste doesn’t suggest youneed to stay without life’s luxuries, it’s merely a method of greater awareness of your choices. By saving money on wasteful expenditures you eventually reduce your own environmental footprint, and you would be doing yourself a favour.
It is equally important for children to get involved and understand the process of plastic-free living and encourage eco-friendly habits as they grow older. This practice starts at home and hence involving them in hands-on activities is a way of teaching them.
You can streamline your life by streamlining your shopping list and what you embrace inside your home. You will find that you have more time to do the things that matter as a result.
You will also help solve the flourishing plastic epidemic of our world by refusing to buy items stored in single-use plastic. It really is a great start to living a plastic-free way of life.
It’s the most wonderful time of the year to have an eco-friendly Christmas by going green, reducing waste, being kind to the environment, and buying eco-friendly gifts this season.
Christmas is the most loved time of the year that brings the family together, yet it also consists of lavish meals, gifts, unnecessary gift wrapping, and lots of wasted food. These habits are built over the years and are usually difficult to get rid of.
A few new traditions can be created, keeping the old ones also intact that would bind families together and make them feel safe and comfortable, and we can create those traditions this year by opting for eco-friendly Christmas decorations, trees, and gifts.
Minimal changes can make a big impact in reducing our environmental footprint during the holiday season.
By taking these small steps towards saving the environment is a great lesson to be passed on to the next generation who will continue to preserve the environment
This way you can show people in your life how much you care for them while still caring for the environment, by giving sustainable, eco-friendly gifts.
Green gifting gives you a range of eco-friendly gifts that will allow you to take part in the holiday season without compromising your sustainable values.
So head up to your local store, eco-friendly product websites, flea market, or an antique emporium! An eco-friendly gift will always be unique, and shopping for handmade gifts can be lots of fun too. You never know what treasure you’re going to discover.
While we set foot into the holiday season, we want to interact with people and connect with things that make us happy and feel cheerful. Christmas is one festive season that depicts lights, candles, handcrafted decorations, sharing meals with the family, and waiting for Santa to arrive. All of these invoke strong childhood feelings.
As we unwrap the Christmas decorations from the previous year, it leads us to a pathway of emotions of excitement. The bittersweet nostalgia brings back fond memories of family gatherings, unwrapping gifts together, putting up decorations, cooking together, and a lot more.
So the joy is extended by putting up those Christmas decorations early and feeling the spirit of Christmas.
This season we can make it a lot more special by adding more decorations to our existing collection. We can buy handmade decorations that would last us over time.
Remember when you purchased a product that lasted so long and you kept telling your friends and family about it? Yes, that is the story of handcrafted products. The material withstands the time and will last you years together and you know that you have made a good purchase.
Also, recent times have only shown us how technology can replace skilled workers with machines this also means that when we support skilled work we are supporting local production which is good for the community and breaks away from machine-made goods. This also works well for the environment.
Handcrafted decorations are unique and each product has a unique difference. A lot of our products are personalized and made according to your specifications with a whole lot of love and care in Australia.
Eco-friendly products encourage natural and organic decorations. You will also be contributing to the sustainability of the environment. So let’s go green this season and make it a Christmas to remember!
2020 will go down in history as one of the hardest and most talked-about years in our lifetime. Most of us have never experienced a pandemic, nor have ever been told to stay home, isolate and stay away from our friends and families. As the seasons have passed, we are still very much on high alert, the worry and fear are still present within our communities and our global and Australian borders are still not fully open for us to freely visit our loved ones afar, so what will Christmas 2020 look like?
Before we all fly off the handle in despair lets embrace how we can turn this frown upside down. Yes, Christmas 2020 is going to be a lot different. Sure maybe drinks at our neighbour’s this year might be cancelled, the highly anticipated Christmas staff party will be on zoom and our children’s kindergarten end of year concerts scrapped but we can still rejoice by appreciating the little things and keeping it so very simple and, of course, eco friendly.
Christmas in December is one month that everyone looks forward to and it remains to be the most beautiful time of the year. With only 36 days until Christmas, the COUNTDOWN has finally begun.
While we are mostly all at home and we have an immense amount of time on our hands to really plan our Christmas 2020, it might just be the most organised yet! Why not decorate the house from head to toe, start dog marking your Christmas pudding recipes, drafting your Christmas playlists, pre-order the seafood and the ham and above all top up on quality time with the family that you can see, they will be the most rewarding memories yet.
Happiness will be found in simple things and that goes hand in hand with buying your very own Christmas Tree and putting up your favourite decorations.
Why not make this Christmas eco friendly? One Two Tree offers you a Christmas tree which is handcrafted and made sustainably in Australia. Get a lovely wooden tree from https://onetwotree.com.au/ this December which will last you year after year and you can decorate any way you want.
If you were a fan of our Message Boards, have we got something for you— introducing our new Open/ Closed signs! As you all know, we’ve recently relocated to Precinct 75; and with our new studio now able to accomodate walk-in customers, we realised how necessary it was to have to have a sign that clearly stated whether or not we were open.
Our Open/ Closed Signs are designed with both convenience and style in mind. With the plaques carved with ‘Open’ and ‘Closed’ on either side, they can be easily flipped to display whichever word suits. It also comes with a optional woven rope, giving you the option to either hang the sign up on your storefront, or have it sit pretty on the counter of your business. Like all our other products, these signs are sustainable and lovingly handcrafted in Australia using only premium Australian hoop pine plywood.
In terms of style, we wanted to stick to our roots and keep it simple. We specifically designed our Open/ Closed signs with a minimalist aesthetic, so that it’ll be sure to fit in with any existing decor. Whether you’re running a cutesy artisan store, a tranquil yoga studio, or even a modern hairdressing salon, our Open/ Closed signs will be a superb display piece.
We’re also thinking of designing a ‘Back in 15’ sign, so if this is something that you’d be interested in, give us a shout— we’d love to hear from you!
Following the success of our Australian-shaped Treasure Board, we started receiving loads of requests from customers all over the world, pleading with us to create various Treasure Boards unique to their homeland. But amongst the heap of requests, one country especially stood out to us…
Well New Zealand, you asked and we listened— we’re proud to introduce the latest Treasure Board to our One Two Tree family, in none other than the shape of New Zealand! Aside from the fact that you guys were probably the most passionate in your pleas, it also felt right to expand our Treasure Board series with a country close to our hearts.
From its rugged coastlines to its glistening snow-capped mountains, we were inspired by how New Zealand was known and absolutely adored for its breathtaking sceneries and vast landscapes; and we wanted to encapsulate these striking physical features in our Treasure Board. Although it took a bit of tinkering around with the design to get completely perfect, we were finally able to recreate New Zealand’s unique shape by differentiating each of its three main islands!
Personally, I think that the most exciting stage about developing a new product is seeing the very many ways that our lovely customers choose to display our pieces around their homes. With endless options as to how to style and fill the shelves of our NZ Treasure Board, I can’t wait to get inspired by the creativity of each and every one you!
Height: 82cm. Width: 23cm. Shelf lengths from 9 to 14cm long. Depth of Shelf: 6cm. 9mm Australian Plywood— Natural Finish. Weight: 1kg. Arrives flat packed with assembly instructions and hardware.
