Christmas is fast approaching and just like Wham, mince pies and ice skating, Christmas jumpers have become a staple part of the festive season. Here in the UK we're set to spend a dizzying £220 million on novelty Christmas jumpers, a quarter of which end up in the bin or are or are unlikely to be worn again. It’s snow joke. (Ahhhh).

That's why tis' the season to #GiveAKnit about Christmas jumpers. Reuse, transform or swap a Christmas jumper instead of buying a new one this year! Here's how:

1) Wear it again

1 in 3 people buy a new Christmas jumper each year, and most are only worn once or twice! Reuse a Christmas jumper you already have. You looked great in it last year and we promise your nan won’t mind.

2) Transform a regular jumper into a festive one

Transform an uninspiring sweater or moth bitten jumper into a winter season statement piece. Imogen from sustainable fashion brand Gillian June shares her ideas here - have a browse.

3) Get swapping

Swap your jumper with families or friends! It’s a great way to get a brand new look without having to spend a penny. And remember a jumper is for life, not just for Christmas.
