The reusable green deeds advent calendar is a fantastic way to countdown to Christmas. Handmade from reclaimed wood and second hand fabric the trees stand just over 2 feet tall and 1.5 feet wide at their widest section. Fill each bag with your own holiday treats to countdown the days. Each bag also has green deed prompts in them which are eco-friendly activities you can do to build greener habits in your family. For example you might see “walk instead of drive somewhere today” “do this winter nature hunt” “donate an old book to a little library in your neighbourhood”. These prompts feature giving back to the community and protecting our planet at the same time.
All the wood is reclaimed from inside the walls of my house after we took down a wall in a renovation. Instead of sending that wood to the dump, we took out all the nails and have kept it for projects like these. We try to reuse and repurpose whatever we can to reduce the impact we make on the environment.
Advent calendars come with a larger bag to pack away all the smaller bags and the stand comes off the tree so that it can lay flat. They are available in the Hamilton, Burlington and Oakville areas only and are made on a made-to-order basis. Free pickup is also available if you’d like to pickup in Hamilton – email firstname.lastname@example.org to setup your pickup time.
