Tips on how you can make small, sustainable changes in the way you celebrate the holidays this year.
More waste is generated in the period between Thanksgiving and New Year’s than at any other time of the year. Unwanted gifts, food that gets thrown away, and discarded holiday cards, wrapping paper, and evergreens make a significant impact on carbon emissions, landfill waste, and our pocketbooks. In fact, most of us would welcome less spending and gift giving during the holidays, a practice that would result in less stress and less waste.
This year, you can make small changes in the way you celebrate the holidays that make a real difference to the health of our planet. From the way you shop and the gifts you give to the way you prepare your holiday meals, I've written a whitepaper which outlines many helpful tips to make your holiday season a sustainable one.
From everyone at Renewable Choice, we wish you and yours a world of happiness this holiday season.
