It’s the most wonderful time of the year…

At Christmas it’s almost a necessity for every household to get a tree and decorate it. For families who take a lot of pride in this, it’s a festive feeling that can’t be beaten.

Christmas Waste Should Stop

However, what we don’t think about is how many trees don’t see the inside of a home. It is estimated that around 6 million or 9,000 tonnes of Christmas trees are thrown away after Christmas, that’s roughly 5 times what the London eye weighs.

Mind, Body & Soil’s Solution

In the UK, we only recycle a sixth of all trees bought. Mind, Body & Soil thought it would be a good idea to up that fraction a little and repot a tree to minimise waste this year. In the Wellness Wonderland box, you have all the components you need to have a comfortable, relaxing night in while it’s cold outside. While helping the environment at the same time, there is nothing more important than setting aside some me-time. Even repotting your plant is seen as meditative and therapeutic by many. Give it a go!

A Perfect Winter’s Day Activity
