Buy a real tree and if possible. Once the festive season is over, be sure it’s recycled so it can be turned into wood chippings or compost.
STICK TO A SHOPPING LIST THIS YEAR
When you hit the shops, be sure to take your reusable bags with you. After the big day, make sure that you make good use of your leftovers and freeze what you know you won’t be able to eat in time.
REUSE GIFT WRAPPING
Reuse gift bags, boxes, tissue paper, and ribbon from last year. If they’re in good condition, why not reuse them rather than binning them and buying new? It’s better for your pocket and for the planet.
CHRISTMAS TREE LIGHTS
LED lights use around 75% less energy and last longer than other types of lights. You’ll save precious energy and money by making the switch.
RECYCLE OLD TOYS
This year why not give old toys that look like new to a charity near you for others kids to get some joy out of them.
