A Sustainable Christmas With Coco Veda
With the festive season just a couple of days away, let’s discuss some simple steps to achieve a Sustainable Christmas holistically:
“As consumers we have so much Power to change the World by just being careful in what we buy...” – Emma Watson
This year, focus on meaningful and purposeful Brands that support social causes, if 2020 has taught us something, it is that Health and Wellness should be our top priority. Gift a friend a sustainable, handmade and eco-friendly product that balances the needs of the people, planet and profit. Get Creative with your gifts and request for recyclable paper / cardboard packaging. Alternatively, if you are gifting a friend, re-use your shopping bags. Buy gifts for your loved ones that will be long-lasting and re-usable. Let’s get rid of the stigma that Sustainable gifts are expensive!
At Coco Veda, we have curated gift boxes along with homemade personalized cards to appreciate friends, family and loved ones during this challenging year. There’s plenty of Christmas Bundles that we offer here at Coco Veda and our Gift names are iconic – Rudolf needs a Bath and Mrs Claus Pamper me Pretty, are our best-sellers.
“To keep the body in good health it is a duty, otherwise we shall not be able to keep our mind strong and clear…” – Buddha
If you are organising a Festive Christmas Dinner, we recommend opting for healthier and vegan meals with locally sourced ingredients embedded within your recipes.
You can definitely use Coco Veda’s Certified Food Supplement Grade Virgin Coconut Oil for your ketogenic meals, or it can be drizzled as a dressing over your Salad. For the sweet tooth lovers, you can add our Virgin Coconut Oil in your Hot Cocoa or Coffee, similarly, Christmas Cookies with our Coconut Sugar is mouthwatering.
“Love and Food are meant for sharing, not for Wasting…”
If there are any leftovers, please store them correctly and pack them for the next day. Alternatively, get crafty, put your Christmas Spirit Hat on and give your home-cooked meal to someone in need. After all, Christmas is all about giving! Do not throw away leftovers no matter how tempting it may be, just to put things into perspective, “the UN estimates annual global food waste at 1.3 billion tons, or around a $1 trillion” (CNN, 2020).
“What you do makes a difference and you have to decide what kind of difference you want to make…” – Jane Goodall
