How to make large cel­e­bra­tions plas­tic-free? “When you’re en­ter­tain­ing at home or help­ing to or­gan­ise an of­fice Christ­mas party, there’s a temp­ta­tion to fall back on sin­gle-use cut­lery,” says Emma Pri­est­land, plas­tics pol­lu­tion cam­paigner for Friends of the Earth. “But there are lots of low-cost hire com­pa­nies out there, or you can ask friends to share cut­lery, table­ware and glasses.”

Then there’s the Christ­mas jumper. “It’s tempt­ing to buy some­thing new and glit­tery,” says Pri­est­land, “but it’ll of­ten come with a huge plas­tic foot­print, so if it’s only go­ing to be used once, it’s best to shop in char­ity or vin­tage shops.”
