This festive season, London will be home to a Zero Waste Christmas Market.
Returning to the capital for a second year, its organisers claim it will be doubling in size and scope to cater to the 70% of Brits looking to ‘go green’ and reduce their environmental impact.
They note shoppers are increasingly interested in avoiding plastic-packaging and buying gifts made from recycled or eco-friendly materials.
The market will be home to 44 zero-waste brands, which will use no plastic packaging or wrapping and sell ethically-sourced and produced items.
It aims to generate zero waste, so there will be no rubbish bins – there is even a deposit-mug scheme planned for hot mulled wines.
Profits from the event on 7th December will be used to reforest the UK’s countryside!
