Christmas is big business, with Australians expected to spend $66.8 billion between November and Christmas Eve this year.
At the same time, consumers are more conscious of their impact on the environment than ever before. This is reflected in spending habits, with 74% wanting to act in a way that is not harmful to the environment.
With this trend towards conscious spending, it’s wise to include eco-gifting options in your festive range.
