It’s hard to believe, but all you need to do is step into your nearest shopping centre and you’ll quickly be reminded that Christmas is just around the corner!
From the speakers blasting out Christmas carols to the tinsel snaking its way around the display mannequins, Christmas cheer is all around.
Of course, strolling through a busy shopping centre is not an ideal way to spend this festive season, not to mention all the unnecessary bits and bobs you’re likely to pick up.
Why not make this year a more sustainable one, by purchasing gifts that are eco-friendly and natural, and follow some useful tips to do your part towards protecting our precious planet?

MAKE A MEAT-FREE FEASTThere's never been a better time to find ready made Vegetarian and Vegan options for your Christmas dinner, with an array of options available at all the major supermarkets - we're personally big fans of Tesco's Cauliflower Wellington here at Baie!

We can't get enough of his Crispy Roast Potatoes and Trimmings!
OPT FOR RE-USABLE WRAPPING
Every year, millions of tonnes of waste ends up in landfills, and the majority of that waste happens around Christmas. It makes sense with all the wrapping paper and plastic packaging, but plastic cannot degrade and simply sits in landfills polluting the earth. Wrapping paper can only be recycled if it passes the scrunch test - paper which is very thin, foil or glitter decorated must go into general waste. Even recyclable alternatives like kraft paper can be very difficult to recycle if they are contaminated with sticky tape.
This year we highly encourage you to consider using reusable wrapping paper, Wrappily is a great resource and you can choose from hundreds of lovely designs!
