Christmas is a time of goodwill and celebration but it is also a time when more spending, eating and drinking leads to more waste being produced.
During the festive season it is estimated that in the UK we use around 1 billion Christmas cards, 83 square kilometres of wrapping paper, 750 million extra glass bottles and containers, 500 million extra drinks cans and we buy about 8 million real Christmas trees.
