Eid is just around the corner and we are back with another volume of Low Waste Eid. This is something I really enjoy putting together because I truly believe it’s important to rethink our holiday traditions in light of the climate crisis. Foil balloons, wrapping paper, and shiny toys for Eid are all nice on the surface but what happens when we are done with these things. Where do they go? Out of sight, out of mind is not an ethically justifiable position. Change takes time and while perfection is not possible, we must start somewhere. I hope this guide will be a source of inspiration to take that step. I hope you’ll see that Eid can be just as festive and special when we lessen our impact by making or upcycling gifts and decor. If you decide to make something from the guide or are inspired to create something from what you have on hand, please share and use the hashtag #lowwasteeid. I’ll be sharing your creations on my instagram as we get closer to Eid.
