With a few days to go until the festive period starts in earnest we wanted to wish you a Merry Christmas along with a few tips for this year and many to come.
The Cash for Kids Mission Christmas Toy Appeal 2021
This year to help spread some Christmas cheer, colleagues from the Ballyclare Group came together to donate gifts to the Cash for Kids Charity Secret Santa. The Cash for Kids Mission Christmas Toy Appeal 2021 is a brilliant cause that gifts presents to children this Christmas who otherwise would have gone without.
Sustainable, money saving Christmas tips
Recyclable and reusable wrapping paper
It’s all about recyclable brown wrapping paper and fabric wrapping this year! Don’t end up with a pile of shiny wrapping paper and sticky tape that can’t be recycled. You can add some natural wonders, like pinecones and sprigs for decoration. Need an activity with the kids? Get creative by painting and drawing your own patterns.
Decorations for your table
Did you know most Christmas crackers are not recyclable? With the toys inside often made of plastic, look out for FSC-certified crackers. If you are feeling creative, you could make your own reusable DIY crackers and fill them with eco-friendly gifts. Opt for material tablecloths and napkins that can be used for years to come instead of single-use versions.
Find recipes for your leftovers
Leftovers are sometimes inevitable over the Christmas period but that doesn’t need to mean piles of waste and money in the bin. Why not use turkey and meats in pies, ramen soups and tacos and your veggies in pasta bakes and buddha bowls. Before the big day, find easy, delicious recipes online to love your leftovers.
