Season’s Greetings from Spud and Slice
We can hardly believe it – but the holidays are fast approaching! Doesn’t it seem that we’ve barely left the warmer months behind us? Nevertheless Christmas cheer abounds from shop fronts to the lights on Oxford Street – and our very own Spud is all decked out in his new Christmas gear!
While the season is a time for giving, we really don’t want to be giving lots more to our rubbish bins! In fact, it’s estimated that we throw away 30% more food over the festive period than the rest of the year. In December alone, we’ll generate approximately 230,000 tonnes of additional food waste in the UK!
In order to help you have a wonderful Christmas, without any additional waste, we’ll be featuring lots of advice and ideas on our website over the next few weeks. If you’re keen to try for a waste-free Christmas, start by having a look at our fabulous reuse guide section. We have loads of practical advice on how to reduce, re-use or recycle commonly wasted items over the holidays, such as:
There’s lots more too so be sure to have a look here. If you’re also keen to keep Spud’s smile up all Christmas long we have great suggestions for making the most of your Christmas dinner. For example, how to make a festive meal plan and what do with all those leftovers. You can browse through our archives for a jump start.
Last but not least, Spud and Slice are busy preparing a very special Christmas surprise for you! Sign up for our newsletter to be the first to hear about it or simply stay tuned to this space…
Happy Waste Free Holidays!
