In 2020, more than ever consumers are starting to become more aware of sustainability and making better decisions for our planet!
To make things easy for you, we've listed below 4 Simple Sustainable Christmas Tips you can follow this Christmas.
1. Plan Your Shopping
Last minute panic buying often ends up in unsuitable purchases.
Get organised and make a list of what you need (whether it’s presents or items for Christmas day) - and stick to it.
When it comes to shopping for presents, think it through and buy useful presents- something your loved one will actually want and love.
2. Shop conscious
Invest in businesses that you believe in and align with. Vote with your dollar.
Do some quick research before buying from a company to check that they're making a conscious effort to do their part for the planet.
3. Receiving Unwanted Presents
Have you ever been given something you don’t want from an estranged Aunt? We’ve all been there..
Avoid the temptation to hoard in hope that you’ll ‘one day’ use it, and also avoid throwing the item into landfill.
You could consider taking any unwanted gifts to an op shop, selling it on eBay or FB Marketplace, or gift to someone who will use it.
4. Recycle & Re-use
Store away wrapping paper and cards that you receive – you can recycle them next year for wrapping and you can cut up old Christmas cards to make unique gift tags.
