Simple Actions for a Merry Green Christmas

<Insert school name> encourages all <Insert audience e.g. parents / students / staff> to check out Planet Ark's 12 DOs 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 RecyclingNearYou.com.au, Australia's most popular free recycling directory for households established by Planet Ark with the support of Proud Partner, Bingo Industries, and Page Sponsors, ‘Cartridges 4 Planet Ark', MobileMuster, TechCollect and Tetra Pak..
