As we approach Christmas and we are sucked into the cycle of purhasing I am wondering if there is a way of making this present fest somehow good for the planet?
‘Baah Humbug! I hear you cry, xmas is for children and you should not be transposing your own feelings of guilt over the rest of us. We just want to enjoy!’
Well, I ask, shouldn’t it be possible to do both by being responsible in our shopping choices - the goods we buy, the places we go to, the manner in which we dispose of our old purchases.
Surely this is not much to ask for saving the planet and preserving our way of life?
So after this splurge, let’s make 2009 the year of Responsible Consumerism.
