Like a lot of households, Christmas is our favourite time of the year. There is certainly practically nothing improved than the countdown to Christmas and experiencing it via the eyes of your youngsters. We have a fair couple of Christmas traditions that we adore to do with the children all through December, ranging from getting our annual festive day and placing up the Christmas tree, to watching festive films all snuggled up with the tree lights twinkling in the background.
When I was young there have been constantly two factors that would make me really feel like Christmas was on its way. The initially was heading off for a drive with my Dad to see if we could spot the most effective Christmas lights (a tradition that we now do with our small ones), I nonetheless bear in mind driving about our neighbourhood with him, listening to festive tunes and shouting in excitement when we saw a property that was especially ‘dressed up’. The other was when you heard the Coca-Cola advert for the initially time. Seeing the red truck and hearing the jingly music constantly created me really feel like it was the get started of the countdown to the most effective time of the year.
We have been truly excited the other day to hear that the iconic Coca-Cola truck was on tour and heading to a town fairly close to us. If you are a normal reader of my weblog you will know that more than the final couple of months we have been operating with Coca-Cola Good Britain as element of their Parent Panel, exactly where we are understanding a lot more about recycling and their sustainability mission, to realize a #WorldWithoutWaste. I have felt so honoured to have been operating with them as Coca-Cola is one particular of my favourite brands (and Diet plan Coke is Constantly my drink of option), so what improved way to finish the year than a trip to see one particular this iconic festive treat in the flesh?
So, one particular cold and rainy Wednesday evening we headed off wrapped up warm in coats and hats, prepared to really feel truly Christmassy….
We had such a beautiful time going to the Coca-Cola truck. The girls have been in their element searching at all the quite lights and they particularly enjoyed the fake snow – with that and the Christmas songs playing in the background it felt definitely magical. Appear at the delighted smiles on their small faces
It was such a good evening and most effective of all it didn’t expense a penny- it was a good, enjoyable household activity that we all truly enjoyed. The Coca-Cola truck is going to be going to a total of 24 cities up and down the nation in total- believed December – whilst you are there seeing the iconic truck up close, you can discover Coca-Cola’s winter wonderland, take a festive selfie and get pleasure from a modest can of your favourite drink – no matter if it be Coca-Cola original taste, Coca-Cola zero sugar or Diet plan Coke.
Jon and I got to have a cost-free drink as effectively, (I had a Diet plan Coke of course and Jon had a Coca-Cola zero sugar), and I was impressed to see that Coca-Cola was continuing it is #WorldWithoutWaste messaging and mission by getting several recycling points all through the truck location. I also learnt that Coca-Cola is operating closely with nearby councils and waste collection agencies to coordinate litter collection at each and every place, to guarantee as a lot of cans are collected and recycled as attainable.
Did you know that Coca-Cola’s aluminium cans include about 42 % recycled aluminium and are 100% recyclable? Coca-Cola is continuing to perform to recover all its packaging in the UK so that none of it ends up as litter in our streets or oceans. This types a essential element of its worldwide ambition to realize a #WorldWithoutWaste – anything we have been attempting to realize as a household also.
We had such a beautiful festive evening and a good time going to the truck – I loved having to see anything, which has been incredibly substantially a element of my Christmas countdown due to the fact I was a small girl. I would certainly advise a go to if you can squeeze one particular in, it certainly created me really feel all warm and festive inside. Right at the get started of the project I mentioned that whilst we do our bit in terms of recycling, we undoubtedly could do a lot more, and I truly wanted to educate myself and our youngsters a lot more about the significance of recycling. So far, this project has truly opened my eyes as to how substantially can be recycled. Undertaking this partnership with Coca-Cola Good Britain has offered me a want to truly feel about what we are performing as a household in terms of recycling and we have currently created a fair couple of modifications in our approaches to recycling as a household. It is been an honour to perform with one particular of my all-time favourite brands, whilst also understanding a lot more in the course of action.
Thanks so substantially to Coca-Cola for operating with us more than the final couple of months, it truly has been an honour.
