"Dreaming of a Green Christmas?" debate


More Christmas shopping help for those bereft of ideas for green presents is on its way in the form of a 'green Christmas bazaar' taking place at the Science Museum's excellent Dana Centre on the evening of 6th December.

It's all part of a night of discussion and debate called 'Dreaming of a Green Christmas?' where a leading waste and recycling expert will give an overview of the complexity of being eco-friendly, before product designers and manufacturers explain why their products are worthy of being considered a green purchase.

The event gets all interactive and Pop Idol after that, when the audience gets to vote on what they think is the most green product by using eco-criteria including energy efficiency, re-use, recycled materials and sustainability.

Showcasing their products at the event will be Anna Roebuck, designer of lightpieces, screens and jewellery handcrafted from recycled plastic bags, and Peter Martin, creative director of Junkk.com, a web forum dedicated to reuse, repair and reduction. Apparently, Peter hasn't thrown anything away for three years.  (When I lived in a house with a massive cellar and a loft, I used to be like that, too, although I may be missing the point here.)

Important Information
Dreaming of a Green Christmas? starts at 7pm and ends at 8.30pm.

Events at the Dana Centre are usually free but they've asked that people pre-book if they can, by calling 020 7942 4040 or e-mailing tickets@danacentre.org.uk.  You'll also need to be 18 or over (due to licensing restrictions).
