Greener Holidays

Whether you celebrate Chanukah, Winter Solstice, Christmas, Kwanzaa or them all, take steps to do so with a smaller carbon footprint.  Try these top tips:

  1. If you want to decorate with a live tree, then plant it outdoors, take this (entertaining, smart) advice from Yew Dell Garden's Paul Cappiello.

  2. If you buy a cut tree, skip the shiny "icicles" so it can be mulched and composted after the holidays

  3. If you decorate with lights, choose LEDs and turn them off before you go to bed.

  4. Plan meals using more local ingredients

  5. Wrap gifts with plain paper neither shiny nor plasticized, so it can be recycled.  Better, wrap in reusable fabric, such as a bandana, towel, etc.

  6. If you receive a gift that replaces a current possession, ensure that someone else can use it

  7. Have folks on your list who don't need more stuff?  Donate to LCAN and your favorite local environmental groups in their honor!
