There’s no denying it, the festive season is upon us and here at Deja Ooh we’re looking forward to hopefully (fingers and toes crossed!) spending time with the family, relaxing, eating, drinking and generally being very merry after all this crazy mess the world is in!
Christmas can be a time when sustainability goes flying out the window with everyone running to the shops and online to get decorations and presents, but we want to encourage a more thoughtful approach – one that supports local business, embraces our upcycled ethos and isn’t about filling homes with plastic. You can shop local, check out nearby makers markets for unique gifts, re-use last year’s decs and wrapping paper, head to notonthehighstreet.com and Etsy for some lovely present ideas from indie businesses or make your own!
We’ve put together a guide of some of our products that will help you have a guilt-free festive season:
