  • How to create a reverse advent calendar

    Count down to an ethical Christmas 2019 Count down to an ethical Christmas 2019

    Last year the Piccalilly team ditched chocolate advent calendar’s and started the tradition of creating a reverse advent calendar for distribution before Christmas to our local food bank.

    But what is a reverse advent calendar and how does it work?

    The idea is very simple. Instead of opening the door to a little chocolate treat and taking something out, we do the giving and put something in. To symbolise each day of advent a member of the Piccalilly team gifts a donation into the advent box. As we’ve chosen to gift to our local food bank the donations will mainly be food items, but we've also chosen to include toiletries and of course some of our own Piccalilly organic babywear too. Make sure to include not just staple food items but also some treat items like chocolates and Christmas puddings too.

    We start our reverse advent calendar box early, before the start of December, to enable us to take it to our local food bank in time for distribution before Christmas.

     

    Here’s a step by step guide so you too can make one with your family or work colleagues this Christmas;

    • Pick a charity, organisation or food bank you would like to donate to.
    • Contact the organisation to find out what items they are most in need of and when you should drop them off.
    • Create your box and if you’re collecting in the workplace create a list for everyone to cross check what items would be useful to contribute into the box.
    • Get collecting and let the countdown begin!
    • Finally, make sure to deliver your box in good time ahead of Christmas. We have started our box in the middle of November for gifting to Skipton Food Bank in the middle of December. This way someone can receive a nice parcel in time for Christmas day.

    Part of the Piccalilly Way of doing things is to think about the detail of how we make our organic baby clothes and kidswear. This includes the print designs too. It's important that our prints say something and opening up discussions about subjects that are really close to our hearts such as the RAINFOREST. Our Summer 2019 collections explore the animals and birds that make up one of the earths oldest eco-systems.

    Why are we so passionate about rainforests?

    • 20 percent of the planet’s oxygen is produced by the Amazon Rainforest alone.
    • Rainforests are our best defence against climate change regulating global temperatures and weather patterns.
    • Rainforests are home to more than half the worlds animal species. Sadly, many of these species are fighting extinction, and their continued existence is crucial to maintaining the balance of the rainforests' efficient—but delicate—ecosystems.
    • Rainforests are critical to maintaining the Earth’s limited supply of drinking water, so they are critical for sustainability on earth.
    • Rainforests are the world’s pharmacy with 25% of all modern medicines derived from their flora.
    • Every minute the equivalent of thirty-six football fields is destroyed. Nearly half of the world’s original forest cover has now gone.
    • 90% of people living in extreme poverty worldwide depend on forests for their livelihoods.

    There are so many reasons to be passionate and fight for the rainforests. When it comes down to it, it’s really important to care and preserve them. If you think about how much of an impact the rainforests actually have on our life, even if we don’t live anywhere near a rainforest, you will really see the importance of keeping them around.

    Here are just a few things we can all do to help protect our rainforests;

    • Avoid palm oil, it’s a key contributor to rainforest deforestation.
    • Buy more responsibly. Choose bananas a coffee grown in a sustainable way that is safe for the environment, for wildlife, and for the communities where it is grown.
    • Create a habitat in your own garden for migrating birds
    • Use less paper and always recycle it. Choose products with the highest percentage of recycled content.

    Check out our new season organic baby and kids ranges featuring our new season Rainforest print designs.
