Christmas is honestly my favourite time of year and sadly associated with an enormous amount of plastic waste and waste in general for that matter. Getting caught up in the Christmas-swing is addictive but if you can … take a step back and reassess your favourite parts of Christmas and see if you can convert them to a plastic/waste-free part of your favourite holiday.
On the first day of Christmas…
It’s the most obvious and most impossible to avoid – presents.

We love to get them and we love to give them even more. It’s the most selfless time of year where you give someone you love or care about something you think they will enjoy… Well how about this year you make it count on both sides?
How about this year you find something your loved ones will like that matters to you and for the maker? Find something that fuels the soul of the entrepreneurs and the go-getters and not just the big corporate companies.
Easiest way for a start is to find locally owned, locally made and operated companies and products that you could support. Why not make it special for them and their families as well as for you and your loved ones?
Our favourite gem this festive season has to be ‘AMO – African Made Only’. A fashion brand that is locally owned and run. African Made Only locally produces fashion apparel that is sure to be the envy of every stocking filler or for that special someone who deserves something bright, vibrant and out of this world.
