How I am trying to have a more sustainable Christmas, and how I am struggling with it

It’s that time of the year again. The time to be with our loved ones, eat our own weight in delicious food and spend our yearly income in material things to show our love. Only this year, make it eco-friendly. I have been trying this past year to be more conscious of my habits and…
