Laudato Si - Wasteful Christmas

Laudato Si – Wasteful Christmas

According to the BBC last week every Christmas in the UK 114,000 tons of plastic packaging is binned not recycled, 227,000 miles of wrapping paper at the expense of 50,000 trees and 270,000 tons of food. Christmas is a time of extreme consumerism and extraordinary waste. Of course Guernsey is much smaller but can we claim to have not indulged in that same wastefulness?
