Eco-campaign “Eco Christmas”

Lithuania, Vilnius 2018
,,Enterprising woman” (VsI ,,Versli”) together with Knowledge Code (VsI ,,Ziniu kodas”) organized eco-campaign “Eco Christmas” on 28th of November 2018.

During this campaign participants found out how to make nowadays Christmas in more ecological way. Event main topics was two issues that are “created” by Christmas: food and festive supermarkets/malls. The main ideas that were shared was that nowadays, many of us relate Christmas to gifts, so malls are full of people, “Christmas-friendly” deals, that’s why participants shared their experiences about promotions and Christmas lights at supermarkets and malls, that consumerism is higher in that time, although it should be vice versa: calm period, spending time people not for searching gifts. Secondly, also important thing that was shared during eco-campaign is big amounts of food, which is often thrown away, so there was discussion how to make food amounts smaller and how to save energy while cooking. After the event, Facebook group "Eco-Christmas" was created: Join for Eco-Christmas!
