Help Fight a Festive War on Waste with the 12 DOs of Christmas

With Australians spending around $50 billion at Christmas, some forward planning for meals and presents can lead to big savings on your wallet and your waste.

<Insert your name/organisation> encourages everyone to check out Planet Ark's 12 Do's of Christmas website. It offers simple tips for making your family's Christmas special, without costing the earth - from fun festive recycled crafts, to feel-good gifts with meaning. 

This year we are encouraging residents in DO#5 to buy secondhand and recycled products. Buying secondhand items or products made from recycled materials keeps valuable resources in circulation. To help make the right choice even easier we've put together a Recycled Products Directory where you can find a range of items from toys made from recycled wood to smartphone covers made from skateboards.

The 12 Do's of Christmas resource was made possible thanks to, a free recycling directory for households established by Planet Ark and through the support of Page Sponsors, Bingo Skip Bins, ‘Cartridges 4 Planet Ark', MobileMuster, TechCollect, and Tetra Pak.
