This December, as part of our ‘Let’s Get Green’ campaign, staff at Farnham Maltings celebrated Sustainable Christmas Month to raise awareness about the environmental impact of the festive period.

As well as receiving weekly newsletters on how to be more eco-friendly, staff have been taking part in activities including wrapping gifts with fabric and wreath-making.

We were pleased to have a member of Extinction Rebellion Farnham join us for our Christmas Afternoon Tea to round up the month’s activities and teach us how to reuse old maps and sheet music to make beautiful Christmas decorations! While we didn’t cancel Secret Santa entirely, it was kept offline and single-use-plastic free.

The internal staff campaign ‘Let’s Get Green’ so far has included an afternoon tea on World Environment Day, a gathering on Don’t Step On a Bee Day, and, to raise awareness about fast fashion, we pledged to ‘not by new’ throughout Oxfam’s #SecondhandSeptember. We’re delighted to have had the support of the wonderful teams at Okomoko and Farnham Wholefoods.

Have a look at what we’ve been up to in 2019!
