Try Something New This November - Editor's Event Picks

What's On

It's hard to believe that November is now upon us. Have you attended many ethical events this year? There’s still plenty of time to get some environmentally friendly activities under your belt before the baubles come out of the cupboard.  

Phoebe Young 8 November 2019

Is your mind already on the C word..? You are bound to find the eco-friendly gifts you're after at one of the Christmas fairs listed here. (pebblefestive is also a great place to purchase your presents!) 

If you want to have a truly sustainable Yuletide season, then try a Christmas crafting or a gift wrapping workshop. They are your one-stop way to feel festive and reduce your waste.

Are you offended by the mention of Christmas at this time of year? Do not worry. Join a deep discussion about gender, climate change or activism instead.
