Christmas doesn’t have to cost the earth!
Christmas is a magical season. Spending time with friends and family, swapping presents, sharing amazing food and drink with your loved ones - no wonder adults get as excited as kids about the whole festive period.
Give the gift of sustainability this Christmas
This year why not put an extra touch of green under your Christmas tree, by gifting your loved ones tree planting or plastic removal - helping build a better future for everyone’s tomorrow.
From just £0.37 a tree, you could give the ultimate eco-friendly present of 27 trees for under a tenner - and in doing so, help safeguard the world’s environment for decades to come.
Or, help remove more than 16kg of plastic waste from the world’s shorelines - the equivalent of some 800 plastic bottles - for the same £10 cost.
They’re unique presents that help wildlife conservation, improve our air and ecosystems, and support communities around the world.
A Family Christmas without the Impact
Christmas creates huge amounts of joy, and yet sadly it also creates a huge amount of environmental impact.
Studies estimate that the average person in the UK generates an extra 650kg of CO₂e emissions during Christmas - the equivalent in weight of 1,000 Christmas puddings.
This is a result not just of travel, but the CO₂e cost in all the things we love to do: shopping; gift production, transport and retail; food production, shipping and cooking; Christmas tree growing and disposal (whether organic or plastic); lighting and decorations etc etc.
And it’s not just CO₂e that causes problems — the UK bins a staggering extra 114,000 tons of plastic waste over the period - equivalent to almost 2kg per person celebrating Christmas.
So this year, why not take the environmental sting out of the Christmas tail, and make your Yuletide net zero and guilt free.
For less than £5 per person, you can help ensure the Christmas you love, won’t end up costing the earth!
