An Christmas Message From The Eco-Team

Eco Team Banner

Here are our top tips to be eco-friendly this Christmas!

  • Wrapping - lots of wrapping paper contains non-recyclable elements like foil, glitter or plastic. An easy way to know if you’re wrapping paper can be recycled or not is to use the scrunch test. Scrunch up the paper in your hands and then let it go. If the paper stays scrunched up, then it can be recycled but if it unfolds by itself then it is likely to be non-recyclable.
  • If you’re looking for an eco-friendly wrapping alternative, opt for the brown paper, recycled wrapping paper or tissue paper. You could even try knot wraps, colourful fabric squares that can be used again and again!Brown Wrapping 1
  • Avoid ribbons, tinsel or sticky tape on presents as they’re not recyclable. Instead, try cord or twine or washi tape.

  • Cards – look for cards with the FSC mark. This guarantees that the paper has been produced sustainably and ethically. Some Christmas cards can even be planted, for a super eco touch! Recycle or compost your cards in January or turn them into decorations for next year. Remember, glitter is a microplastic and can’t be recycled!
  • Lights – switch to LED Christmas lights. LEDs are much more environmentally friendly than traditional twinkling incandescent lights, because they use up to 80% less energy. If everybody did this, we could save more than 29,000 tonnes of CO2 just over the 12 days of Christmas!
  • Decorations – reuse Christmas decorations or go second hand for a sustainable Christmas. If adding to your decoration collection, think about using deigns made from metal, wool, glass or wood. Natural decorations such as berries, pinecones, holly, orange and cinnamon look great on the Christmas tree.Eco BaubleTree
  • Switch to eco-friendly Christmas crackers. Many stores are now supplying plastic-free crackers or even reusable ones!
  • Resist the temptation to splash out on sequins, they’re made from PVC and there are no biodegradable substitutes.
  • Gifting – give a handmade gift. Whether you love baking, sewing or painting, why not get creative this season?

Merry Christmas from the Eco-Team
