Get involved in Green Christmas campaigns

Jumper 3

Upcycled jumper into a Christmas Jumper

Several of the local authorities involved in LAPN have very active campaigns around Christmas, when we consume so much more and produce so much waste.

Why not try something in your community to prevent waste and add to the Christmas ‘feel good’ factor.

For example, in Mayo for the last few years, there have been competitions for children to make Christmas Decorations from old recycled materials in the home. Click here to see what the children made.

In Limerick, in 2013, a Christmas Jumper Upcycling workshop helped people to upcycle their old jumpers into cool Christmas jumpers. See here for more.

Other activities included left-over recipe booklets, workshops and competitions. See can your community group get involved in any of the activities happening in your area. Contact your Environmental Awareness Officer about running a Green Christmas campaign – contacts.
