Mindful Mintie Says "Buy your Christmas Jumper from a 2nd Hand Store"
Love them or hate them they are here to stay I think - Christmas jumpers. Whether you are looking for that understated neat Nordic style or an all out gaudy number there are a few ways to make your Christmas jumper wearing more eco this year.
Wear What you Have
First and probably the most obvious is to use and wear what you already have - let's face it, it's in the cupboard for 11 months of the year so most people won’t even remember you wearing it last year! So have a root around your cupboards to find the most gaudy bad taste item you have and wear what's already there. If you are looking for a change up - swap your Christmas jumper with a pal or other family member.
