It sounds like a wonderful festive time, but unfortunately it is not great for the environment due to the extra energy used and waste produced (last year The Guardian reported we produce 300m tonnes of waste at Christmas each year).

‘Tis the season to be jolly! But this does not mean that healthy eating has to go out of the window. We all seem to follow healthy eating plans throughout the year only to see them vanish once December arrives. The shops are full of tempting Christmas treats, special offers that encourage us even more […]
