Having a more sustainable Christmas

As we have just a month left until Christmas Eve, it may be a good idea to look at some areas where we can make a difference to the planet, our wellbeing, and have a great Christmas.


Christmas Trees – If you are buying a real one try and get one with roots so that it can be replanted after Christmas, if using an artificial one then remember it can be used around 9 times at least. Some garden centres even rent trees out now, and they will deliver and collect them afterwards!

Christmas Decorations – Tinsel is non-recyclable and has quite a large Carbon Footprint, consider using more natural materials, holly, Ivy, collect some cones from a walk in the woods.
