I’m dreaming of a green Christmas


Earth Easy offers the following tips for greening your Christmas.

  • Use LED (light emitting diode) holiday lights.
  • Turn off the holiday lights display when you go to bed.
  • If you’re artistically inclined, make your own personalized gifts.
  • Do a Secret Santa instead of buying for everyone in your family.
  • Re-gift!
  • Buy locally-made items.
  • Give toys that do not require batteries, even rechargeable ones.
  • Buy cards or wrapping paper made from recycled materials, or reuse gift wrap. Don’t use too much tape so the paper can be saved for reuse. Avoid shiny wrapping paper; they are harder to recycle.
  • Use a live tree because artificial trees live in landfills forever. Real trees can be composted later on .
  • Save the boxes, ribbons, bubble wrap and other packing material for next year.

Merry Christmas to all!
