Rule the Roost
Pour a glass of mulled wine and break out Mariah Carey’s holiday album: yes, it’s that time of year again, and there’s nothing like tree trimming and tinsel-hanging to put even the most Scrooge-like in a festive mood. However, stringing up plastic orbs and wasteful paper snowflake cutouts can inspire a bit of bah humbug-ing among those of us dedicated to the cause of greening the earth.
Today, it’s possible to forgo these less-than-planet-friendly pieces of decor in favor of eco-baubles that will beautify your tannenbaum in spades. Just turn to Roost for the goods to do so; the company fashions plush ornaments out of natural and authentic materials such as felt and sisal, each piece designed to close the loop as they adorn your home. Far from generic, these crafty creations were built to be passed down from sustainable generation to sustainable generation. Our favorites? The handmade felt mistletoe and trio of adorable polar bears. They’ll warm any socially conscious heart and hearth.
