Sustainable Christmas Gift Ideas

There is no denying we are living in an 'epidemic of plastic pollution'. 

 

According to the World Wildlife Fund, on average Australians use 130 kg of plastic per person each year. Only 12% of that's recycled. More frightening still, up to 130,000 tonnes of plastic will find its way into our waterways and into the ocean- endangering marine wildlife. 

Studies have also shown that it has begun to enter the food chain and onto our plates.

Collectively our choice to use single use plastics impacts our planet, with the majority ending up in landfills, by the sides of roads, as litter in parks and floating in our oceans for hundreds of years before breaking down into microplastics.

 

The truth is, plastic is everywhere and it doesn’t disappear.

 

Since the festive season is just around the corner, we thought it’d be a great idea to share some of our top gift ideas for a sustainable Christmas. 

We’ve complied a short list of some must-have products to help reduce your plastic use one small step at a time…
