  • Recycle all the packaging you can from your Christmas presents.  Peel of plastic and metal bits so the cardboard can be recycled for example. If you need help on where to recycle items visit
  • It’s natural to want to get in extra food for unexpected visitors, just in-case.  Choose things that freeze eg cakes, breads that way they can easily be defrosted when needed and they won’t be wasted.
  • Compost as much as you can, cardboard, paper, raw fruit and vegetables etc.
  • If you are doing a clear out before the big day remember the charity shops and reuse centres.   Unwanted toys and furniture you no longer use for example can be reused and re-loved again by someone else.
  • Re-invent your leftovers, visit for tips on what to do with christmas left overs.

Have a Merry Christmas and Enjoy!
