Green Christmas: How to have a joyous, eco-friendly Holiday Season
The holiday season may be in full swing, but it’s not too late to pick up this treasure of a book for yourself, family or friends.
The irony of 184-pages being dedicated to having a Green Christmas is not lost on us. Since household waste increases by 25% during the holidays, we look at this book as an important investment. Here are some treasured tips we gleaned:
1. A simple green water-recycling habit to adopt for Christmas: save your cooked water and use it for your Christmas tree. Just think of all the nutrients being put to good use. Your kids will think this one is a hoot.
2. Don’t forget to green your office holiday party. Be careful about over ordering (which tends to happen when you do so for large quantities) and make arrangements in advance to donate left overs to local shelter or food bank.
3. Decoration swaps. Simply brilliant.
