Here are some final tips for the year on having a more sustainable Christmas.

  1. Choose experiences over thingsā€¦sporting event, balloon flight, dog walking etc.Ā 
  2. Gift plants like vegetables or herb plants.
  3. Make a donation to a charity on behalf of your loved one.
  4. Wrap presents without plastic. Use newspaper or twine.
  5. Eat all the food in the freezer before Christmas day, so it is empty, ready to store leftovers.
  6. Make present labels with toilet paper rolls.
  7. Talk to others and be clear about what you want. If you don’t agree with single use plastic, tell people.
  8. If you are ready to go package free, go bulk food shopping with your own bags. Take containers to the deli, butcher and fish monger.
  9. Store your leftovers in jars, plates over bowls, beeswax wraps or containers. Ditch the cling wrap this year.
  10. Use a tree or plant you all ready own as a Christmas tree. If you do buy your own real one, take it to your local transfer station, organise a hard rubbish collection or chop it up once Christmas is over, then put the pieces into your green waste bin.

Merry Christmas everyone from the Green Moves Team
