Trustee Nicky Saunter suggests her top ten tips to make your White Christmas green.
1. Buy each other woolly jumpers, socks and long johns, and turn the heating down a bit!
2. Think about where your Christmas feast food comes from - try a local goose or duck if you can't get turkey, local organic veg, or even local game?
3. Make sure all your chocolate is Fair Trade - then while you indulge, you can feel good about it!
4. Feed the birds - a bird feeder is a good present at any time, but a great one for Christmas. For our advice on appropriate nuts and seeds for birds in winter, click here.
5. Buy a membership of the Somerset Wildlife Trust for a friend or neighbour as a special gift - perhaps for someone who isn't nearby, but loves Somerset. For this and similar presents, click here.
6. Look on our website here for our special gifts that help the environment - sponsor a cuddly dormouse or inspire a new flower meadow.
7. Make your own decorations and crackers - see if you can make them all local, homemade or made of natural materials.
8. Revive those old Christmas games instead of watching TV - collect a lot of leaves, nuts and berries now, dry them and make a "name that tree!" quiz for the family.
9. Go our for a long walk over the holiday period to appreciate the beautiful countryside that surrounds us - and see how much wildlife you can spot.
10. Make your own Christmas wreath 100% biodegradable, using twigs to make the frame. Then compost it in the New Year ready for 2012's Wildlife Gardening!
