Hanging wooden Christmas decorations
Discovery Bay Sunday Market

The holiday season is full of festive inspiration. We decorate our homes, share in the spirit of the season with food and give gifts. It’s the most wonderful time of the year, but along with the festivities often comes a whole lot of waste and overconsumption. Shopping local, making your own gifts, upcycling, and generally reducing waste gives the Christmas season not only more sustainability but also saves money and can have a positive impact on the environment and everyone involved. Additionally, COVID-19 has had a big impact on local businesses. Hong Kong has so many wonderful local businesses stocking amazing gifts. Look for local products, and support your community.
