Everybody loves to give, but at Christmas we can end up giving too much of the Earth away. By buying local, eco-friendly, handmade and fair trade goods we can reduce our impact, support positive initiatives, and find good quality, unique gifts that won’t end up in landfill come Boxing Day.
The Canberra Environment Centre will be running it’s Eco Elves Night Market on the 5th December, with the view to support local business and to provide the Canberra community with a plethora of guilt-free gifts.
Fashion, chemical free cosmetics, ceramics, glass blown objects, jewellery, traditional crafts, second hand clothes, vegan food and sweets, and plenty more will be on show at over 45 stalls.
Delicious food outlets (also fitting the eco-friendly criteria) will also be serving throughout the night, and the local wine bar will be making another appearance.
Setting the atmosphere for the evening will be crooning folk singer Sanjiva de Silva and returing local musos Brother Be.
There will be plenty more to come – may as well plan to spend the whole Friday night there!
If there’s one Christmas market to go to this year, it’s this one.
