The Holidays are almost upon us, and while Santa is making his list and checking it twice, it’s a great time to consider the impact of the holidays on the ecosystem.

Many celebrations involve an excess of disposable waste, with tonnes of tinsel, wrapping paper, unwanted gifts and leftover food heading straight to landfill.

Homemade decorations, gifts and wrapping paper are a great way to keep the kids busy during the lead up to the festive season! 

A few crayons, some butchers’ paper and a few dried flowers can easily be transformed into something far more valuable than what’s inside the packaging. Consider natural decorations like gumnuts, bottlebrushes, Eucalyptus leaves and rosemary sprigs to add colour and scent to your table setting.

Load up on eco-friendly cleaning products! With all the festive fun, there’s bound to be some mess - make your life easy and have all the good stuff at hand! 

Get creative with your cooking! Consider the carbon footprint of some ‘traditional’ holiday foods and how you might substitute more sustainable ingredients. Many people tend to over-cater and find themselves with plenty of leftovers. Perhaps stock up on reusable containers to send your guests away with as a parting gift, or put some thought into what you could either freeze, save for a picnic lunch, turn into a soup (the options are endless!) or add to your compost.

In a traditional period of excess, the environmental impact of eating, drinking and being merry can often be forgotten. However, all it takes is a small amount of research and a little bit of thought to ensure a sustainable holiday season!

Omicron Logistics Status Update | 12th Jan 22

The rapid spread of the Omicron variant has further impacted the logistics industry. This includes many courier drivers, warehouse staff, forklift drivers, container unpack crews and administrators.

Due to the widespread impact of Omicron infections, our partnered carriers across the network are experiencing both a surge in parcel deliveries and major disruptions to their delivery services. With a significant number of people in self-isolation in accordance with state regulations and public health orders, delivery delays are expected across the network due to driver shortages, depots experiencing temporary closures and/or operating with significantly reduced staff.

This has also created some lags in tracking details being updated on carrier websites.

Please allow (at least) an extra 14 business days on top of your estimated date for arrival.

Your patience and understanding is appreciated.
