Here are some more tips from TreeHugger.com for how to make this December waste free! One of my favorite suggestions: “You’ll save five pounds of waste, 1,000 pounds of emissions if you forgo sending 50 cards or invites in a year. E-cards [like the one above] are a great solution to save paper, gas, emissions and money (you can find many online for free).”
As December is just days away and that time of the year approaches again, I thought I share this ecological comparison of real vs. fake holiday trees. The consensus is clear: skip the plastic!
Thanksgiving weekend [and all weekends, but this one especially!] is a great time for giving back to those less fortunate. FeedingAmerica.org is a great resource for finding food banks across America who are looking for volunteers. Avoid the crowds and all that waste this “Black Friday” by giving instead of shopping!
