Plan for a Plastic Free Christmas

Plastic is something that is at the top of any sustainable Santa’s naughty list.

There’s no getting away from the fact that we will all use plastic at some point in the run-up to and during the festive period. That’s just modern life. But there’s also no getting away from the need to reduce the amount we use.
