Out with the old and in with the new.

It’s that time of year when we all clear out the boxes that presents have arrived in sort through the wrapping paper and generally have a good clear out. Our Christmas involved a great deal of sorting recyclable wrappings from non-recyclable (the scrunch test is good for this eg. Stays scrunched or not) we also waded through cardboard boxes and pushed as many as we could in our own recycle bin till it looked like it was going to regurgitate on the pavement.

The other thing is food, we had our traditional bubble and squeak on boxing day to use up most of the Christmas meal left-overs and we still have a fridge with a plate of cheeses in it waiting to be eaten along various jars of pickles,  we also had turkey this year too ( free range ) and we have a container of turkey in the freezer for a later meal.

The important thing to try and achieve from your holiday break is to have as little impact as possible on your environment, try to recycle as much as you can and also make your food investments go as far as possible. It is very hard to achieve a 100% success rate with your Eco Christmas endeavours but with some careful thought and some planning you can enjoy your time and look after our planet.

The perfect eco christmas
