Are you dreaming of a "green" Christmas?

Christmas - a time for kindness and giving. Let’s also be kind to the environment.

If you have been organised this year, you probably already have your Christmas tree, decorations up and presents bought and wrapped. Even if you have, you can still be green throughout Christmas and beyond.

How to Have a 'Green' Christmas

1. Buy Less. Buy practically and think through your gifting. This can save money.

2. Buy Smart: Think 'Green' Look for Locally Made Gifts.

3. Lower your impact of Holiday Lighting.

  • Don’t forget to turn off your lights when you’re not in the room or off to bed.
  • Get LED lights - they use around 80% less energy and last 10 times longer than incandescent bulbs.

5. Make Homemade Cards or send Ecards – it’s the 21st century

6. Find Alternatives to Wrapping Paper.

  • Buy gift wrap made from recycled materials.
  • Make your own gift wrap from materials at home e.g cloth, tissue paper.
  • Save and reuse wrapping paper and boxes for next year


  • your tree
  • decorations
  • cards
  • wrapping paper
  • even your food (compost/food waste)

Remember most things can be recycled. Reduce your contribution to landfill today.
