Ethical Festive Shopping

Christmas is all about overindulgence. And, I happily participate: I eat too much, I drink too much, I disco dance too much, I waste days talking with my brother about sentimental classic Christmas movies, and rather than shop, I watch hours and hours of festive TV commercials. This year, none of them have floated by boat, except a commercial made by Iceland which was banned by the UK Advertising Standards Authority for being too political .  Too political, are they mental?! Iceland should be applauded for raising awareness of the plight of orangutans, and we should, at every given moment, be educated and reminded of the consequences of our buying habits, and our behaviour.

This festive season, help people in need, spend time with your friends and family, and shop ethically.  Check out the commercial
