Red Nose Reindeer Eco Christmas Market

Grab eco-friendly stocking stuffers at this one-day market.

Unless you've been hiding under a rock, you have probably noticed that Christmas has begun to slowly creep back in. Shop windows are jingling with decorations, festive flicks are landing on Netflix and your inbox is filling up with party invites faster than you can say Michael Bublé. On the flipside, the arrival of all things Christmas means that this can be the year that you get ahead of the game, suss your shopping early and cruise into the holidays stress-free.

The Sustainability Trust is helping you to realise your dream of an easy, breezy Christmas with its very merry eco-market taking place this month. On Saturday, 30 November, its Forresters Lane HQ will be transformed into a festive marketplace with a jolly good lineup of local makers and crafters selling earth-friendly goodies.

Among the wares on sale, you'll be able to pick up lush skin treats by Homegrown Botanica, funky undies by Thunderpants, dazzling jewellery by Eclo Art, quirky kids' toys made from discarded textiles by Empriss and heaps of other nifty, sustainable goods.

A barbecue will be on-site slinging vegetarian nosh to keep you fuelled, along with a barista to ensure your caffeine levels are topped up while you shop. If the festive season has you feeling a bit frazzled, swing by the massage station and treat yourself to a little 'me' time.

Open from 10.30am–2.30pm, this one-off market is a top spot to pick up eco-friendly, sustainable pressies, so you can give a gift that keeps on giving this Christmas.
