Tips for a sustainable Christmas:
Choose an eco-friendly Christmas tree!
Choose sustainable Christmas gifts! Reduce demand for physical resources by gifting an experience. Also wrapping can be made with reused or sustainable materials.
You can also buy second-hand gifts! Arcada’s library now has a table with book donations, both fiction and non-fiction. Maybe you’ll find a perfect gift there?
And don’t forget Arcada's own recycling page on Facebook where you can sell, buy or exchange things.
Are you going home for Christmas? Try to be carbon-friendly and use public transport or trains if possible.
Buy etchical and locally-produced food for the Christmas dinner.
