Switch to vegetarian or vegan recipes
Why not try cutting down on meat this Christmas. Here are a few tips on how to have an earth-friendly feast. Even if it is only for a few days, reducing your meat consumption will have a more positive impact on the planet. Try to eat organic, seasonal, and shop locally to help support small-scale farming.
Cut down on waste
Try to refill or buy loose food items to reduce plastic packaging. Use a meal planner, explore recipes for leftovers or freeze what you don't eat. We have loads of meat-free, frozen festive food alternatives in-store.
Gift wrap wisely
In the UK alone we use 227,000 miles of wrapping paper each Christmas and send a billion Christmas cards (33 million trees), there is a clear environmental cost to gift-giving. Every kilogram of paper generates 3.5kg of carbon dioxide. Despite 79% of paper and cardboard in the UK is recycled, there needs to be more eco-friendly alternatives.
Why not try some reusable fabric gift wraps or the art of Japanese Furoshiki? Filling Good is stocking a great range of upcycled and fairtrade sari gift wraps. Check out this tutorial: How To | Furoshiki - Japanese Gift Wrapping
