Don't have a Rubbish Christmas!


We all love the feeling of opening a present and tucking into some great food. But after the food is eaten, the presents unwrapped, and the celebrations are over, the Christmas Grinch stays behind in the form of piles of trash.

Ensure you are on Santa's good list this year by pledging to not have a Rubbish Christmas.

While producers ultimately need to change as there is often little choice for consumers in terms of the packaging on products they wish to buy, we can each encourage better production practices by supporting those who are doing better. Some rules of thumb for gift choice is prioritising items that will last, those without unnecessary packaging, local products, or gifting memories like vouchers or gifts that give to others such as Oxfam’s Unwrapped series.

Pledge now and we'll send you a quick email with some tips on making Christmas less Rubbish, so we can all enjoy the festivity!

    Plastic is all around us, but we need to be smarter. I did a beach clean today and NOTHING was the product itself – all the plastic was packaging. Let’s select presents with no plastic packaging. Mine’s a potato. What’s your Santa?
