Christmas Jumper Day Is A Thing!?

How do you feel about Christmas jumpers? Like most things, they can be done ethically and responsibly…. or not.

Some people admit to throwing away their Christmas jumper from the previous year to get a new one every year, and they are notorious for having plasticky, glittery stuff all over them – we all know these are highly polluting both in their manufacturing process and if thrown away.

But we don’t need to be a scrooge about Christmas jumpers, there are good ways to join in the fun! Firstly, if you already have a Christmas jumper, resurrect it, don’t bin it! No one will care if you wear the same jumper every year.

If you want to buy one, try second-hand websites, there are loads at great prices, or if you want to buy new, look at the materials used and try to buy as ethically as possible.

Many schools have swap sessions for children’s Christmas jumpers which is great as they tend to grow out of them so quickly. Some forward-thinking groups are also doing swap days for adult-sized jumpers too, so we can all get our festive jumper fix.

If you don’t have one near you why not start one off? We would love to hear how you got on. Merry Christmas Jumper Day!
