Winners Announced in January 2021

Make a difference this festive season and go green for Christmas in Lane Cove!

Four out of five Australians have revealed they have received a present that they didn't want, with 14% of people admitting to throwing away these unwanted gifts.

On top of this, the silly season often involves waste from festive food, paper, electronics, plastics and gift wrapping.

We're asking Lane Cove locals to share their sustainability ideas and help inspire others to think twice this Christmas.

Simply upload your images of creative, sustainable Christmas ideas to Instagram and tag @lanecovecouncil and #LCGreenXmas to enter our challenge.

Lane Cove Gift Cards are up for grabs for the most creative sustainable Christmas idea, the best re-use of materials and the judge's favourite.

See below for the Terms and Conditions*
