Waste free Christmas

Christmas is a time of year where consumerism and waste is at its height, but there are ways to minimise these things. I only buy presents for the children in the family and I am a big advocate of making presents. If I have to buy, I always try to buy ethical presents; meaningful, useful gifts that are environmentally friendly and guaranteed fairtrade. Then there's the wrapping:
I recycle newspaper for the wrapping paper and
use raffia or paper painter's tape to secure it. I
will also cut out pictures from magazines or old
calendars to make the wrapping more interesting.
