When doing your Christmas Shopping this year think about The 5 R's: Refuse, Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, Rot.
Refuse Selection boxes! Plastic
Reduce Kris Kindle
Reuse Re-gifting is acceptable!
Recycle Cards, tags, bags
Rot Think natural
Why not create beautiful memories and give the gift of TIME.
Refuse Don't buy anything new
Reuse LEDS, fix broken lights
Recycle Swap or Charity shop
Refuse Don't be tempted by brochures
Reduce Only buy what you need
Organic and local
Can family bring something?
Reuse The freezer is your friend!
Recycle Send people home with leftovers
Give to local soup kitchen
Rot Compost everything else, peelings
bread, cooked and uncooked meat
Refuse Only go to those you need to!
Reduce Your carbon footprint, go veggie
Reuse No single-use
Recycle Charity shop Kris Kindle
Rot Compost food waste
So now think about The 5 S's:
Simplify - Think less is more
Slow down - Only go to the events where you connect with people
Savour - Enjoy time with loved ones
Support - Christmas is often a difficult time, so support those who need help
Stay present - Go for a walk, enjoy the smell of baking, don't try to multitask!
We wish you a very happy and healthy Christmas and New Year from all the team at Earthology.
