Enjoy an Eco-Friendly Holiday Season

The holiday season is a great time of year but it's also a time of great waste. Here are a few things you can do to enjoy an eco-friendly holiday season:

  1. Decorate Naturally - Bring the scent of nature into your home with holly, evergreens, fir cones and cranberries.

  2. Think Outside the Box - All those gift bags, ribbons and bows account for an incredible amount of waste so try and reuse old wrapping paper.

  3. Light Up Mindfully - Everyone loves the twinkle of holiday lights but for the sake of the environment, use LED lights and remember to turn them off before going to bed.

  4. One, Two, Tree - Real trees take in carbon dioxide and release oxygen as well as help sustain the rural economy whereas artificial trees can't be recycled, aren't biodegradable and may contain toxins.

The holiday season is a great opportunity to start eco-friendly family traditions that can be passed down from generation to generation. Better still, these methods can be as easy on your wallet as they are on the environment!
