Give the Gift of Green
Every gift you buy represents an investment on money, energy, water and time.
Rather than buying physical items for your loved ones maybe get them a special experience like a massage; make some home made chutney or choc truffles; or give a native tree.
Feeling the squeeze this year? Try community recycling sites freecycle.org.au or scoodi.com to pick up items for free. For as little as $10, a personalised charity donation makes a great gift for the right person (visit oxfamunwrapped.com.au for example).
Gifts look fantastic wrapped in old maps, newspapers, Sunday comics or sheets of music.
