A Greener Xmas

It’s getting close to that time of year again and consumerism approaches it’s annual high….

I wrote a post last christmas entitled a Christmas Challenge where I challenged people to NOT buy THINGS for Xmas.

I just noticed the site http://fucktinsel.com/ (via @KateTribe/@SilkCharm) which gives you some scary stats about the environmental impact of Christmas and offers some more environmentally friendly alternatives.

“WHAT THE FUCK?

every christmas we generate millions of tonnes of landfill and carbon dioxide emissions through our purchasing decisions. not only is this unnecessary but it’s offensive to treat our environment so carelessly.

fuck that.”

Order a shirt with their logo and they will plant you a tree 🙂
