How to have a more eco-friendly Christmas

Top tips and gift ideas for a sustainable festive season

Sustainability is a hot topic at the moment. From turning down your heating, to reducing single- use plastic, there are many small changes you can make to reduce your impact on the environment.

Head towards zero waste this Christmas with our useful suggestions.

Stick natural

Go zero plastic this year and choose a sticky tape that is manufactured using natural ingredients. Containing cellulose film and naturally based glue, this Sellotape is 0% plastic so can be put in the recycle bin with your paper or added to your compost bin.

Wrap sustainably

For parcels, why not choose a wrapping paper that may be recycled easily. This 70gsm weight Kraft brown wrap is strong and supplied on a 4m roll for you to select the exact amount needed. Why not customise with ribbons, paint or decorative tags for a natural and festive appearance.

Pack it the green way

Choose a biodegradable filling material for all your packages this Christmas. This loose fill is 100% recycled and 100% biodegradable with an S shape design to mould around products and protect them during postage.

Give a recycled and practical gift

If you need to choose plastic, then why not go for a more sustainable option? This Avery eco pen pot is made from 100% recycled plastic with a contemporary leaf design. The ideal gift for anyone working from home, the pot has 10 compartments of varying sizes so useful for storing pens, paperclips, scissors and more.

Plan the eco way

Making written notes and crossing off to-do lists is one of the most efficient ways of planning at Christmas. Plan Christmas meals, create Christmas shopping lists or even jot down some eco new years’ resolutions for the year ahead with this recycled ‘to-do’ pad.

3 ways you can choose to reuse

Save on single use cups.

Use coffee beans instead of pods for an eco-friendly way of brewing coffee. On some machines you can even set the timer to brew in time for everyone arriving in the morning for the perfect start to the day.

Metal water bottle

An insulated drinks bottle is a practical gift for anyone. This stainless-steel water bottle keeps drinks hot or cold for up to 24 hours and will help to cut down on single use plastic water bottles.

Eco Drinks Cup

Instead of single use takeaway cups that may not decompose, why not remember to bring your reusable coffee cup next time you pop into your local coffee shop? This makes the ideal gift for the eco conscious.

Make a New Year’s resolution for less pollution

Keep surfaces, floors and appliances clean the eco way with a concentrated cleaning formula. This Biohygiene enzyme based cleaner is highly effective, removing fats and grease with a low aquatic toxicity so kinder to the environment. The 5 litre bottle and formula that is dilutable means a reduction in plastic. This makes it longer lasting for more a cost-effective and kinder way of cleaning.
