Christmas is an important time to remember the need to reduce waste.

Reblogged from the NSW Greens website

Christmas is an important time to remember the need to reduce waste.

The Greens encourage people to share with friends, family and the community the issue of conspicuous consumption.  This issue is at the heart of the consumer capitalism we live under, and one which we must be addressed, if sustainability of resources is to become possible.

We must make changes to the one-upmanship that passes for the sharing of presents.  There are alternatives, options that demonstrate the value friendship, originality and community; those of useful handmade presents, symbolic gestures of sharing, gifts of one's own precious time in the form of a helping hand, a funny poem, or organising a neighbourhood get-together.

It's time to look for alternatives, and enjoy the friendship, the creativity and fun that holidays can bring to us.
