As we approach the three-week countdown to Christmas, there’s no hiding from consumerism; everywhere we turn, we’re being tempted or encouraged to buy buy buy (and us Standees are dangerously close to Oxford Street!).
Even Christmas Jumper Day, our favourite festive fundraiser from Save The Children, indirectly encourages people to head to the high street and snap up a cheesy Christmas jumper bargain for the day. While it’s fun to get involved and raise money for a very worthy cause, it’s still fast fashion and there’s the worry that encouraging unsustainable buying habits could be doing more harm than good.
Now, we’re by no means Scrooges, but we do like to stick up for what we believe in. So this year, Stand HQ is putting a sustainable spin on one of our favourite festive days. Here’s how we plan to keep the workplace thoughtfully festive and fashionable this year, and we encourage you to do the same!
