    Swaps

    Art Swap!

    Recycling Week in Australia (November)

    To celebrate National Recycling Week Planet Ark is inviting everyone in Australia to participate in the Big Aussie Swap. This is a unique, nation-wide opportunity for local governments to show their ongoing commitment to raising the profile of reuse and recycling initiatives. Additionally, Swap Parties allow council educators to access an engaged audience in a fun and interactive way. The Swap Party is an ideal place to run other Council recycling or sustainability activities, or to use existing materials including education posters and quiz posters.

    Plastic Bottles

    Every time you refill your bottle you keep a disposable bottle out of the landfill. And it saves you money!

    Plastic Bags

    The best way to recycle plastic bags is to return them to a take-back receptacle where you received them. If the store or market does not have a take-back receptacle, ask if this is a possibility. If it's not, consider finding somewhere else to shop.

    CDs

    Do you know anyone using old CDs in recycled art? - Australia's Green Guru says, "To find a good home for your own used CDs and DVDs, string 'em up to make wind-chimes or a suncatcher to scare the birds off your veggie garden! Or glue felt onto the shiny side, and turn it label side up for a groovy drink coaster."
