Packing up and going away for Christmas? After filling up the bird feeders, remember to take cutlery and storage boxes for takeaways and leftovers and to avoid pollution. A couple of these plastic-free lunch boxes made from 100% biodegradable organic rice husk from the Yorkshire Wildlife Trust should do the trick and can be used daily for school/work afterwards! Amazingly, they're both microwave and freezer safe, withstanding temperatures of -30'C to +120c and each comes with a kids spoon and fork, strap and removable divider (and a friendly panda design on the front).
Already arrived and yet wanting to flee? Give yourself or your host 'the gift of adventure'. You/they could fly like a bird on England's longest and fastest zipwire with an eagles eye view over the Eden project in Cornwall. Set 100 metres above the ground and facing right over the cliff edge, you can look forward to really letting yourself go!
