The Woodland Trust is encouraging people to give a gift to nature and help the planet too with the an eco-friendly Christmas.

With the devastating impact of climate change all around and the nature crisis making headlines on a daily basis, many are thinking of ways we can make a difference for this year’s festivities.

The UK’s largest woodland conservation charity the Woodland Trust,  wants to help and has compiled a guide to simple ways we can all fight for nature and climate and reduce our impact on the environment while we shop.

Christmas is traditionally a time for excess – but your celebrations needn’t cost the earth! Every single purchase from the Woodland Trust shop – including Christmas cards and gift wrap – makes a contribution to the Trust’s work with woods and trees, meaning you can fight climate change and help create havens for wildlife, while also ticking off items from your Christmas to-do list.

Every product in the Trust’s Christmas range is eco-friendly, whether it’s FSC-certified wooden garden tools or bird feeders made from recycled plastic.

If you’d rather move away from giving traditional gifts completely, the Woodland Trust can still help with a selection of green ‘virtual’ gifts and unique tree and woodland dedications in woods across the UK.
