Each Christmas, the UK generates the equivalent weight of 3.3million emperor penguins in plastic waste!
1 billion cards will end up in the bin/trash….
27,000 miles of wrapping paper is used every year in the U.K, most of which can’t be recycled due to glitter or metallic finishes….
AND 250,000 tonnes of food waste is generated every Christmas in the U.K alone! (Equivalent to 2 million turkeys)
On top of that, 81 million unwanted Christmas presents are given each year… with 10% of these ending up in landfill!
With these staggering figures, it’s easy to find alternatives to our current habits. Particularly with this year being so difficult to get out & about to see anyone. If you are buying this year, #buybetterfortheplanet.
