Friday 13th December: Geminids spectacular meteorite shower & Christmas jumper day



This 'Save the Children's Christmas jumper day' you can shine like a star, whilst saving the planet by wearing a jumper with natural fibres like sustainable organic cotton and wool instead of synthetic fabrics which create micro-fibre pollution. Recycle an existing sweater by jazzing it up and think about knitting your own next year, adding different nature creatures/embellishment going forwards to keep wildlife at the fore-front of all of our minds. If you haven't got the time or creative skills, it's not too late to order a jumper for Christmas to wear again next year. Dorset based Antimaltopia create vegan, sweatshop-free organic cotton tops in solar and wind-powered factories with eco-friendly inks and their original and all-time bestselling Christmas Highland Cow print is back by popular demand! Last orders for Christmas delivery 19th/20th December 2019.



If you're thinking of adding some sparkle this party season, then avoid everyday loose glitters that can end up in the stomachs of bird and marine life. Instead go for a brand like EcoStardust Bioglitter which is not only totally biodegradable but 10% of their profits also go to environmental charities.


NB. If you didn't get to see last night's full moon and you miss tonight's Geminids spectacular meteorite shower, you can experience 'the glow' closer up and under cover. Luke Jerram's amazing touring artwork 'Museum of the Moon', a fusion of moonlight, lunar imagery and surround sound, is still on display at the Natural History Museum (until 1st January 2020) and is free to visit. Meanwhile, down at the Eden Project, you'll be able to see 'Gaia' which is the Earth (featuring detailed NASA imagery) as it appears from the moon. In situ over the festive period until 5th January 2020 - their Christmas concerts will be taking place underneath, making you really feel like you're on another planet.
