7 ways to have a relaxed, eco-friendly Christmas

Christmas is a wonderful time of year, isn’t it? Summer smiles on us with long, warm, sunny days and we spend holiday time with our loved ones. We get into the festive spirit with delicious food and wine, we shop for the perfect gifts. As I’m planning my festive season this year I’m very aware of the heavy carbon footprint it carries. To lessen the impact, I’ve decided to go for relaxed, natural, simple celebrations that are lighter on the earth and my purse. Here’s my seven-point plan.
