The Holiday is upon us! So how green have you been or are you planning on being?
Did you decorate with LED lights? Solar?
Did you use light timers on your decorations?
Did you make your own gifts or buy handmade or buy local?
When purchasing gifts did you choose to support green companies?
Are you avoiding wrapping paper or using recyclable paper?
Did you use homegrown food or buy local?
Are you carpooling to parties or events?
At parties are you using REAL dishes? Cloth napkins? Rags/dishtowels instead of paper towels?
And what about after all the celebrating is over....
Are you recycling all that wrapping paper and packaging from toys?
Are you using rechargeable batteries for the toys? Or recycling batteries when they are done?
Are you recycling your Christmas tree or reusing it next year (if it's fake!)?
Are you saving boxes, ribbons and bows to use again? Wrapping paper!?
Are you saving the leftovers for future meals (there are whole cookbooks on how to reuse the holiday basics)?
Hoping each of you can claim AT LEAST FIVE of the things on my list!
And what else have I missed? Leave me a comment and let me know!
Merry Christmas Eve!!!
