Have a Green Holiday at Home

Here are some tips for being earth-friendly at home during the holidays:

  • Through away old holiday lights and replace them with LED lights which are safer and use up to 90% less energy!
  • Don't fill up a landfill with wrapping paper that cannot be recycled. Use alternative wrapping materials instead, such as: cloth or reusable gift or tote bags, usable items like dish towels or scarves, old newspapers, magazine pages, paper bags, or old maps.
  • Fake holiday trees also add to landfills. Consider trimming a live, uncut tree, which can be replanted outside after the holidays.
  • Don't trash old electronics! If it still works, donate it! If it no longer works, recycle it!
  • Almost half of battery sales occur during the holidays. Purchase recharagable batteries versus regular batteries which add potentially harmful materials to landfills.
