Welcome to the first annual Green Christmas Gift Giving Guide giveaway hop hosted by Home Grown Families and Just My Everyday Life. Lots of great blogs are participating, so after you’re done reading my post and entering my giveaway, please visit the other participating blogs listed at the bottom of this post.
I love decorating for Christmas, but I have become very conscientious of what products and materials we bring into our house. I would have never even thought about harmful toxins being in my Christmas decorations, but after all of the stories in the last couple years about lead dust being found on artificial Christmas trees, I realized I do need to be concerned about Christmas decorations as well.
So, I was really excited when weeDECOR came out with Christmas wall decals this year. If you aren’t familiar with weeDECOR, it’s a line of high-quality fabric wall decals that are eco-friendly and biodegradable.
This is an important distinction because most wall decals are made out of vinyl.
Vinyl is made from PVC (polyvinyl chloride). It can be made softer and more flexible by the addition of plasticizers, the most widely used being phthalates, which can leach out of vinyl products. I don’t know about you, but I don’t want my children breathing in phthalates or any other harmful chemicals.
That said, please do your research on vinyl and PVC – and the toxic chemicals you may be breathing by using products made from them.
So, in my never-ending quest to find the best natural, eco-friendly and healthy products on the market, I was introduced to weeDECOR. I love their fun nature-inspired images, and the wonderful colors they use. My girls get excited every time they see another new wall decal.
That is why my excitement peaked, so to speak, when they introduced their new Christmas wall decals. I love the simple, inspired Christmas designs they chose – they really make me miss my grandma (who we lost just 2.5 weeks ago due to lung cancer), whose love of Christmas made it what it is to me – a celebration of family togetherness.
Here are a few of my favorites:
You can see the rest of the weeDECOR eco-friendly, fabric wall decals on the alex+von website.
