Have Yourself a Sustainable Little Christmas - Our top tips!
It's official - the festive season is upon us!
While Christmas is by far one of our favourite times of year - it's not a great time for the environment. Between food waste, plastic packaging and fast fashion party-wear, this time of year can wreak havoc on our planet. While we don't expect you to forgo your Christmas festivities, we encourage you to try out some small changes this year, that can make a huge difference. We've rounded up our Top Tips to Have Yourself a Sustainable Little Christmas!
Choose your tree wisely!
Cut down your carbon footprint and support your local retailers at the same time! Do your present shopping and food shops in local independent stores, not only will you be able to find more unique gifts, but you'll also find fresher produce! Explore zero waste gifts this year, and remember quality over quantity.
Get creative with your wrapping!
Every year, we throw away an abundance of wrapping paper - apparently enough to circle the globe nine times! Use recycled or FSC-certified paper to wrap your presents and avoid things like plastic ribbon and tape and foil-backed papers which aren't recyclable.
Re-wear that party dress!
Cut down on Christmas fast fashion and embrace re-wearing your party clothes this festive season! Or if a new gúna is essential, shop in second-hand shops or organise a swap party with your friends.
