We all love Christmas but the fact is our favourite festive period can have a pretty harmful impact on the environment. In the UK around 30% more waste is created at Christmas than throughout the rest of the year. And that’s not all, around 6 million Christmas trees and nearly 300,000 tonnes of packaging are thrown away every single year.
So how can we be more green this winter, here at the Ecard Mint HQ we have been scratching our head and coming up with all sorts of good ideas! Handmade gifts, recycled wrapping paper and switching to Ecards all top our list.
We are really happy that more and more people are aiming for a green Christmas this year, so much so that many of the retailers are starting to take notice and change their wasteful ways
