Festive ads have taken over the TV, jingly playlists are being compiled across the country, and fairy lights are twinkling away in high street windows.
The time has come around when it’s totally acceptable to drop the C-bomb again… Christmas is only 40 days away!
Whether (like us) you’re already blasting out the warbling sounds of Mariah and Bublé and planning where best to position your tree, or if you’re more than happy to put off decking your halls with holly for a few more weeks, we can’t wait to share a round up of our favourite ethical decorations this year!
More and more of us are deciding to make conscious and kinder decisions around what we eat, wear and buy so why stop at Christmas decor? Not only are these festive decorations eco and animal friendly, they’re also super stylish, timeless and beautifully crafted pieces that will last for years to come.
