    "Of the $50 billion spent by Australians around Christmas, approximately $700 million is expected to go to landfill by the following February." To combat the insane waste produced at Christmas time, Randwick City Council host their Best Gift Market as part of their ongoing campaign to encourage sustainability, as well as inspiring the creative industry. The day has local artists selling handmade goods, workshops, live music, food stalls, a Christmas tree and plant market, a car boot sale, and photos with Santa. Enjoy an eco-friendly day picking up your pressies for Christmas.
