Featured question: How much energy do Christmas lights use?
For a more eco-friendly decorative approach, avoid single-use products such as tinsel and glitter. Instead, try to use natural products. For example, learn how to create a Christmas wreath at https://www.gardenersworld.com/how-to/grow-plants/make-a-wildlife-friendly-wreath/. In essence, try to make homemade decorations in preference of buying ones, if possible. This way you can guarantee they are coming from a natural source and can be reused for years to come.

For decorative lighting, LED lights are the more environmental friendly option.
It is best to avoid battery operated items.
If using candles, go for beeswax & soy wax instead of paraffin wax or palm oil based candles (see this & this).
