Eco Church

Eco Blog by Chris Marshall (Member of our church)

Over the 12 days of Christmas our Earth can do without …..

12 plastic straws to drink my cocktails with - ask for no straws

11 plastic bags to carry all my presents in - take own reusable bags

10 bottles of water to help me rehydrate - use Transition refill scheme

9 packs of wet wipes to clean up all the mess -

use a reusable cloth / don’t flush away

8 rolls of shiny paper to wrap up all the presents -

not recyclable, use alternative recyclable paper

7 rolls of cling film to keep the leftovers fresh -
Beeswax wraps are a great alternative

6 reels of sticky tape to tie up all the gifts - try ribbon or string instead

5 tins of sweets ….. go for those not individually wrapped

4 sequined dresses for all those party dates -

avoid small plastic pieces that will get washed off

3 tinsel garlands to decorate the rooms -
use sprigs of natural foliage such as holly or ivy

2 tubs of glitter to decorate the cards -
avoid as these are microplastics that go down the drains

And 1 giant skip to put the rubbish in – BUT WAIT …

what can be reused or upcycled?

So, what can you change this year to make your waste a little less, and give our precious Earth the gift of a rubbish free Christmas?
