Have you visited a toyshop lately? So many children’s toys come with a huge amount of packaging. Plastic coated wires or screws are used to hold the toy in position within the box, so it looks perfect as you see it through the plastic window on the front of the package. What will happen to all this packaging once the toy is unwrapped? How much of it will end up in a bin- either headed for landfill or recycling.
Have you bought clothes online? Some garments are sent out by the retailer individually covered in plastic and on coat hangers, inside the postal box or bag.
Could significant amounts of resource and cost be saved by retailers reducing the amount of packaging on their products?
Perhaps you are considering what gifts to give others this Christmas. What will be important to you as make choices of gifts? Is there a way to give without so many resources being wasted? How might you have a simpler Christmas this year?
