Whilst celebrating over the Christmas period, it is inevitable that loads of festive cheer will be accompanied by even more unnecessary waste.

Sarah Maloy, who owns Shop Zero in Nottingham’s city centre, gathered a team of talented craftsmen and artists to create the Conscious Christmas Market at Malt Cross.

The market ran from 10am – 5pm and showcased vegan chocolates, homemade wooden spoons, and hand stitched toadstools, alongside many other unique gifts to be given at this time of year.

With numerous stalls of various zero waste Christmas present ideas, it is now even easier for people to help save the planet whilst doing their festive shopping.
