Why not give the greatest gift of all and go green?

It’s not long to go until the big Christmas countdown, and as the old adage goes: charity begins at home.
So why not mark the moment, make a difference to the planet and focus all your festive entertaining, gifting, decos and favourite treats on helping the environment?
With so many eco-friendly choices out there, it’s the most wonderful time of the year to be hosting, toasting and celebrating sustainability…
Cut out plastic
Pulling back on plastic is actually easier than you think, especially when you consider how many times you’ve saved on the 5p single use plastic bag charge by stuffing everything into your canvas shopper.
‘Tis the season to buy loose fruit and veg, make the switch to tap water and light the little’uns’ eyes up with plastic-free toys.
Shop locally, use public transport or have a home delivery
Reap the benefits of the lovely fresh air; invest in an eco-friendly shopping trolley and make the journey by foot; jump on the bus or have your shopping delivered – all of which can help cut carbon emissions.
You’re probably doing this anyway, but while it’s the most wonderful time of the year, it’s also one of the most wasteful. Make sure you have enough recycling sacks so you’re not tempted to put things that can be recycled in the rubbish.
