In Ireland will generate 86,000 tonnes of packaging waste this Christmas - an increase of 3,000 tonnes on 2017.
The recycling initiative Repak is urging everyone to make an effort to cut down on non-recyclable waste this year.
According to the findings of a study commissioned by Repak, a third of Irish shoppers admit to having a full recycling bin before the festive season has even begun.
The group is advising us to get some recycling done before the big day arrives.
