Christmas is a time for celebration.
Remembering the Reason for the Season.
Making the time to meet with friends and family that we seldom see.
A time to enjoy Christmas Dinner and all the special treats of the season.
When serving, resist the "easy" choice of disposable plates, cutlery etc... it might require a little extra time washing dishes and cutlery, but collectively the impact on our planet can be positive!!
And a time to give and/or exchange gifts...
This year, we can all do something that can potentially save us some $$$ and help Save Our Planet!!!
When it comes time to wrap our gifts,
MAKE THE CHOICE NOT TO USE WRAPPING PAPER!!!
Reusable Fabric Bags,
Paper Bags (also reusable),
Re-use newspaper, magazines and other paper products...
Instead of buying, make your own, decorate pinecones etc... if possible. I got a lot of ideas visiting a local "Pioneer Village"

Choose LED lighting (many stores are offering some sort of rebates for turning in your old lights.
Any other ideas out there?
