(ABC News: Hayley Roman) Whether it's food, alcohol or gifts, the holiday season is typically a time of excess. But there is a growing appetite for a low-waste Christmas. Perth's malls have been packed with last-minute shoppers, yet among them was change. "No wrapping paper this year," one shopper said. She planned to give people their gifts simply as purchased. Another shopper said he was trying to limit plastic bags, and any Christmas leftovers would go into his compost pile. "I don't like buying things we already have so they have to wait until they break," said another. Outside supermarkets, trolleys were filled with a mix of plastic and reusable bags, while some customers walked out with items in their arms.

"Our dying ocean is a reality. Last year a man contracted flesh eating bacteria and died after going scuba diving a few days after getting a tattoo.
Our marine eco-systems have been poisoned with chemicals, feces, agricultural run-off, pesticides, herbicides, plastic, PCB's, mercury, radiation, etc.
In British Columbia virus infested blood is being pumped through pipes directly into the sea. Fukushima is spewing tons of radioactive water into the sea everyday in Japan (since March 2011).
From every port and sewer in the world we dump, spew, and pump toxic filth into the sea.
We need to give our Ocean the time to repair the damage we have done.
And remember, when the Ocean dies, we all die!" 😓
