Sustainable Christmas

A Sustainable Cornish Christmas

How to Have a Sustainable Christmas in Cornwall.

This Christmas we once again look forward to welcoming visitors to enjoy the festive season with family and friends in our beautiful properties. For many people, locals and visitors, reducing their environmental impact has become an increasingly important priority. With that in mind we’ve put together a guide to some of the simple ways that you can have a sustainable Cornish Christmas.



The closer we stay to home, the lower our seasonal travel related carbon footprint is. Global aviation accounts for an estimated 2-3% of all CO2 emissions. So for all those spending the festive season in the UK, your Christmas carbon footprint will be much reduced.

In addition, if you are looking to spend Christmas in Cornwall, Cornish Gems will plant a tree in our virtual forest for all of our guests on the 25th of December to say ‘Seasons Greetings’ and thank you for choosing us.
