Happy plastic Christmas

Just because it’s pretty and it’s Capitalistismas please think about what you are doing in the long term as regards polluting the planet. I blogged this originally in December 2020 and it’s still relevant. Our relationship with the natural world is all wrong for so many reasons and on so many levels.

December 2020

Humanity has lost its way. We either have to decorate places with dying trees chain sawed out of a pesticide sprayed monoculture forest or we roll out plastic lookalikes. Why? Because it’s tradition. I don’t suppose they had plastic Christmas trees in say 1850 or in the time of Jesus so I guess it can’t be a particularly old tradition. It’s all to do with things looking nice. It doesn’t seem to matter that we are exposed to pesticides if we have real trees or are exposed to microplastics some of which at some time will come from this plastic representation of a Christmas tradition. Future and hopefully cleverer generations will look back at our uneducated and ill informed madness. We really do need to start being a bit more sensible and find better ways to celebrate the season than the ones that are currently potentially poisoning us.
