Wishing Everyone A “GREEN” Holiday Season

Wishing Everyone A “GREEN” Holiday Season


green holiday tips


Tis the season…to save money and be kind to the environment.  Here are a few practical tips to do both this holiday season.

1.  Buy LED holiday lights. They are cool to the touch, use much less electricity than conventional lights, and last longer too.

2.  Be creative when wrapping gifts. Use Sunday comics, recycled paper, or gift bags that can be reused over and over again.

3.  The big tree debate – real or fake – which is the kinder to the environment? The winner is—LOCALLY cut real trees. The manufacturing of fake trees is very environmentally toxic and the product is not biodegradable.

4.   This year, replace most or all of your holiday cards with ecards.  You can be really creative and save a lot of trees ( and money ! )

5.   Great gift idea – donate to charities in your loved ones’ names, or “adopt” an animal at the zoo. These gifts help a cause and are environmentally sound choices.

We wish you all a safe, healthy, and happy holiday season.
