As part of its commitment to the environment and sustainable manufacturing, George Barnsdale has launched its “green advent calendar” which is available online throughout December offering lots of ideas for a more eco-friendly yuletide. In addition to ideas for reducing food waste, avoiding excessive use of plastic and present wrapping ideas, there is also a chance to win a luxury M&S hamper by posting a photo of a festive window or door on the company’s facebook page.

Commenting on the initiative, Tracy Pomfret, Marketing Manager said: “Rather than send out Christmas cards this year, we wanted to offer something that would encourage people to think more sustainably. Christmas is probably the least eco-friendly time of year with all the excesses that we are all guilty of. The idea of the calendar is to give people a new inspirational idea each day to do a little bit for the environment. Just one small change can make a big difference.”

Anyone can sign up to the calendar online here.
