Three Ways to Go Green This Holiday Season
Did you know Americans throw away about 25 percent more trash between Thanksgiving and New Year's Eve? Check out these tips to make sure your holidays are greener than ever:
This December, try using reusable materials, such as newspaper to wrap some of your presents. If each American family wrapped three presents in this way, it would save enough paper to cover nearly 50,000 football fields.
When you go to buy your decorations this year, opt for LED lighting to help save both energy and money. Once you get your lights in place, be sure to put them on a timer to reduce electricity usage.
Buying a real tree this year? Be sure to dispose of your tree at a chipping facility or research ways to return it to the environment in your area.
