Do something for the environment at Christmas.

We threw away 5 Million tons of edible food in England last year, and given people’s tendency to over cater at Christmas we could throw away more than average in the next week!

But we don’t want to wrap up the surplus in single use plastic or clingfilm. How about doing it the old-fashioned way, and cover bowls of food with a plate? Or invest in some glass storage containers with bamboo lids (IKEA have cheap ones)

And something more difficult – stop the children ripping off wrapping paper so that you can reuse the best bits next year. They will never remember they have seen it before!
