ANXIOUS middle class parents are making a last ditch bid to sell the idea of a plastic-free Christmas to their children.
Nathan and Kate Muir are disappointed their children are still demanding plastic toys and games like filthy working-class children.
Kate said: “We’ve tried everything to convince them otherwise, from saying there’s a risk that Rudolph could choke on plastic waste to threatening to report them to Greta Thunberg.
“So you can imagine how sad I was to see a Frozen 2 Elsa doll and a Lego set on their letters to Santa. Not only are they bad for the environment but they’re completely gender typical and incredibly expensive.
“When I was a girl I got a Barbie and a pair of jelly shoes, but the early ‘90s were a different time. That was before I’d walked past an Extinction Rebellion protest march and downloaded The Guardian app.”
Three-year-old son Tom Muir said: “Just give me the equivalent cash value and we’ll call it quits, yeah?”
