This year is time for change. We have all seen and heard the news from the world's leaders and scientists at the COP26 summit in Glasgow.
And we all have our part to play in helping reduce emissions when we shop more consciously. Time to think before we buy and make some positive choices when making festive purchases this year.
Make a pledge to spend your hard-earned money only with planet-positive businesses throughout the festive shopping period. Hettie is committed to making quality products that stand the test of time.
Start planning a little bit earlier too . Being mindful takes time and thought and rushing leads to quick fixes that are a burden on our planet.
It’s estimated that 114,000 tonnes of plastic packaging will be thrown away and not recycled in the UK - so look for plastic free options if you can. Gifts for kids are often full of plastic so maybe look for natural, organic and eco-friendly ideas this year.
And wrapping paper ! We all know how it is admired and looks pretty for a few seconds and then just ripped apart and put straight into a bin bag.
It is definitely a single use item and worth exploring other options
