Everyone under 18 should seek the permission of their parents/guardians to participate in the competition.
With ‘plastic’ now omnipresent, the first step would be to find out what you plan to purchase or use has no plastic components in it- Furnishings, clothes, shoes, decorations, toys or even pet products.
This would take a little bit of researching on the internet as ‘plastic materials’ are know by many names that may not even sound like they are plastic!
Some ideas to explore are below;
- Rent a gift
- Purchase pre-loved gifts
- Gift an experience (low carbon or no-carbon)
- Make homemade gift wrap
- Make Christmas cards
- Gift memberships of activities
- Decorate Christmas tree with natural objects or quirky things that you may already have such as old toys, edible decorations, etc.
- Make Christmas gifts (if you can)
- Use solar lights
