I blogged this for the last two Christmas seasons and it’s just as relevant. If something doesn’t make us immediately sick or we don’t connect it to an illness that we might have or develop in the future then we tend not to think about what could be causing us problems. The fact is that there are a lot of pollutants associated with Christmas and some of them could be very well accumulating in our bodies. Something we should all consider.

Christmas already started to haunt us with the first pack of glitter covered Christmas cards. You’ve probably forgotten about the individual specks of glitter but they are out there somewhere in the environment adding to the countless billions of other micro and nano sized plastic particles that will eventually enter the food chains and the food we eat. Then there’s all the wrapping materials that will end up in landfills or burnt producing toxins or shipped off to a faraway land that doesn’t have proper recycling facilities and no way to deal with the waste. Then there’s all the Christmas trees now decomposing. Maybe they will end up rotting down or maybe they’ll be burnt but what of all the pesticides that they were covered in, what will happen to them? Christmas may have looked pretty but it has been very damaging to the environment.
