Looking to make your holidays a bit more “green” this year? Whatever the holiday, everyone should agree on preserving our environment during their celebrations. Here are some great (and easy!) tips to do just that:
- Give the Gift of Time – There’s so much waste during the holidays. This is a great time to teach kids that the best things in life aren’t really things at all! Think about gifts of time instead. Bringing people together and planning activities can really bring out the holiday spirit.
- Deck the Halls Naturally – Instead of expensive & store bought decor, why not decorate with items found in nature like pinecones for ornaments, boughs for garland or cinnamon and cranberries for table arrangements.
- Recycled Wrapping Paper – Ever thought of reusing those brown paper bags from the grocery store? Tie with raffia and some holly or greenery to make a custom (and earth friendly) gift package.
- Light Up the Holidays with LED Bulbs – Thankfully, the new generation of holiday lighting uses far less electricity than from days past. LED lights are ultra-efficient and energy saving.
- Freshen the Air Naturally – Instead of artificial air fresheners, try homemade scents like hot mulled cider, evergreen boughs, fresh apples and cinnamon sticks. (And don’t forget that favorite smell of fresh baked cookies!)
- Consider Alternatives to Traditional Holiday Cards – Why not try an e-card this year? In addition to saving paper and money on stamps, you don’t need all that extra time for shipping so there’s still time! Now that’s a win-win.
Have a happy holiday season, everyone!
