Lets make Christmas gifts sustainable this year!
We try so hard throughout the year to help reduce the huge impact of waste on our world but this gets put aside at Christmas. An extra 30% of waste is generated during this time, so this year why not buy second-hand? Buying second-hand not only helps protect your pocket it also helps the environment and your local community. Last year studies found that over 61% of toys went un-used/un-played with and of that at least 3% are thrown away without getting regifted, sold or given to charity. Around 114,000 tonnes of plastic packaging will be thrown away and not recycled in the UK this Christmas.
We cant turn back time and say all the items that have been donated to us didn’t come with wasteful packaging or that the packaging was disposed of correctly. But what we know for sure is the item you purchase from ourselves has been saved from entering the landfill and will continue to put a smile on a little ones face.
We have launched our presents for purpose campaign this year to help along the way, in both our stores we have a selection of quality boxed goods at an affordable prices. This year why not opt for a gift voucher for that special someone this can be purchased from ourselves and can not only be used to purchase some much needed items but can also be used to put towards any of our classes. These vouchers will be avalible to purchase from both our Livingston and Bathgate stores aswel as our Community space Kidz N Kin and can be used across all 3 of our premises.
