Christmas jumper craze 'bad for the environment'

It is really difficult to buy Christmas jumpers that don’t contain plastic and are basically fast fashion. These jumpers will wash to create microfibres that pollute our rivers and oceans and are very difficult to dispose of.

Don’t mean to be a Scrooge about Christmas and jumpers but worthwhile people knowing the facts.

Any ideas about how we can stop this for future years?

There ARE some good ones out there. I have one that I bought from Howies a few years ago & is merino wool. I am actually wearing it today as I liked the novelty of wearing it to the polling station.

Are bad Christmas jumpers any worse than any other ‘disposable’ plastic-riddled item of clothing? The clothing industry as a whole is a massive problem. It’s not just for Christmas…
