ADVENT CALENDARS

With only a week to go until 1st December, I thought you would be interested in Biome Lifestyle’s sustainable advent calendars to help children count down the days until Christmas.

Replace the paper, plastic and chocolate advent calendar from the supermarket with this soft felt option available in a Christmas tree and a snowman design.

Each pocket contains a decoration to slowly build up the tree or snowman until completion on Christmas Eve, and their is space for your own Christmas goodies, fair trade sweets, chocolates or home baked cookies.

The advent calendars are made by a small collective of wonderful women in a small backstreet of Kathmandu. They hand produce their own chemical free felt from just hand soap and hot water. And then hand sew each decoration together and place it on a string ready for you to discover in December.

The social enterprise was established in 2003 in order to help many poor, vulnerable and socially excluded women through building their skills and providing opportunity to enhance their economic status and independence. The workers are provided with fair wages and work in a friendly, healthy, clean and safe environment.

The small co-operative has provided economic opportunities to 78 women and aim to develop and support further socially marginalised women.

Biome Lifestyle’s advent calendars are currently on offer at £13  each (was £16) and are available from www.biomelifestyle.com or 020 7254 7613.

Biome Lifestyle is an online store for eco-friendly and ethically sourced products for the home.  Available at Biomelifestyle.com, you can finally unite style and eco with a wide range of products that are organic, recycled, sustainable and ethical.
