Festive seasons come and go. But that doesn’t mean we need to buy into mass consumerism.
This year we follow from previous years with our “make don’t buy” project. One week-long, 5 days of making, creating, laughing, sharing and working together to create gifts for friends, family and loved ones. As well as helping towards a more sustainable festive season.
Each year we buy more and more items that come from places that are unethical, unsustainable and far from our homes. This year be part of the change, say no to mass-made china gifts and create your own bespoke items for the gift’s that really show you care.
We will be taking a small donation which will go to charities we work with because its the season of giving along with making sure we make a more greener impact upon the gifting period.
5 days, 5 different projects each day one big goal
