Are you planning on going Green and having a conscience Christmas this year and don’t know how? Christmas is a time where unnecessary waste occurs, so it’s important to be mindful when your making choices this year because your choices honestly have a huge impact, you matter. Sustainability is not just for the scientists, now is our time, a time for a sustainable shift in Christmas shopping and a o i f e ® is here to help you.
This is a time where everyone can show how much they care for each other, that could be through gifts or simply just from spending time together or maybe even a zoom call this Christmas!. We spend a lot of time shopping for the perfect gifts for our loved ones but simple little changes in how you shop this year can make a big impact. You do not have to overcomplicate Christmas by buying lots but rather by buying with a thoughtful sustainable process. You may find cheaper alternatives out there, but it may have a huge carbon footprint. In all fairness, one person is not going to stop climate change, it is a collaborative team effort, but a shift in the way we think is all it can take, baby steps. Try something new this Christmas, change the way you shop, shop sustainably and don’t let fast fashion own you, be your own trend, start a sustainable trend.
“A single thread doesn’t seem significant, when woven together it becomes more than the sum of its parts.” 1
