I'm dreaming of a Green Holiday Season

The holiday season is upon us so make this year special for you and your family by making your decorations and reducing, reusing and recycling whenever possible.  It’s a fun way to celebrate the season and help protect the environment for future generations.

Start by putting your electrical decorations on timers so that you don’t waste energy.

Instead of throwing out old cards, ribbons, pieces of material, calendars, use them to wrap your presents or decorate your home. Look for good used toys and jewelry for those special gifts.  For gifts that pamper try to find soaps and lotions made with natural and organic materials.

When the season is all over, don’t forget to recycle your tree, save gift-wrapping and bags for future use and take the time to relax and congratulate yourself for doing your part to make the world a greener place.

Happy holidays!
