Going Green for the Holidays!

To help decrease the 900,000 tons of trash that Americans throw away between Thanksgiving and Christmas, try the eco-friendly tips below.

  • Conserve energy by using long-lasting LED lights on a timer.
  • Reuse old gift cards and make them into name tags for new gifts.
  • Send e-cards instead of buying new ones.
  • Use old magazines, newspapers and calendars as gift wrap.
  • When entertaining, avoid using disposable plates and napkins. Instead, recruit family to help wash and dry dishes.
  • Instead of buying holiday decorations for your dinner table, use natural pinecones, leaves, branches and evergreen boughs.
