Greening the Holidays

“Greening” the holidays is catching on fast! Why? For many people, it’s an extension of the eco improvements they’ve made in their lives to reduce waste and save energy and resources. For others, it’s turned out to be a great way to save money but still be thoughtful and honor family traditions. And for others yet, greening the holidays goes hand-in-hand with simplifying them. Rather than focus on frantic shopping, wrapping, and clean-up, many of us are choosing more natural ways to enjoy the holidays without being driven by a commercial idea of what they’re supposed to mean.

In our Greening the Holidays posts and pages, you’ll find lots of useful resources and suggestions. We tackle everything from wrapping paper, food, and lighting to eco-friendly gift ideas and “green” decorations.
