The holidays are coming. People are out spending money buying gifts, decorating their houses, sending out the holiday cards. This holiday I’m seeking a “green” holiday. Why not email cards instead of sending out holiday cards. Saving money, saving time, saving waste. The emails will not end up in the trash or the recycling bin only on the computer.
This time of year a big purchase is wrapping paper and it usually ends up in the trash or hopefully the recycling bin. There are alternatives to using wrapping paper. Look around your house for items you already have such as material, maps, brown paper bags. This is a good way to reuse what you have, reduce spending, recycling within your own house.
Be creative, make it fun while helping save the planet! More ideas to come….
