The holiday season is upon us and with it comes buying, wrapping and celebrating which substantially increases the amount of waste and electricity we generate. Consider giving a gift that is eco-friendly, such as; items made with recycled content, organic, and/or fair-trade. Shop locally, make your own gifts, and reduce waste to reduce your environmental impact this holiday season. Keep in mind, the best way to have a sustainable holiday is to simplify. When you simplify the holidays you often reduce your costs, stress and waste!
