10 Best Ways to

Reduce Holiday Waste

·     Use your own shopping bags - great time to use your reusable bags!

·     Skip wrapping paper - wrap gifts in decorative towels, scarfs and gift bags you can use over & over.

·     Reuse ribbons and bows I have been using the same ones for at least 5 years now. 

·     Use cloth tablecloths and napkins your table will look so elegant.

·     Opt for reusable cutlery and “china” - your dishwashers will take care of the cleaning.

·     Replace plastic cups with washable glasses - everything will tastes better in glass too.

·     Discontinue catalogs you can see all the items on-line instead and save lots of trees.

·     Recycle delivery boxes and wrapping flatten the boxes & wrapping paper and place in your curbside recycle bin/cart.

·     Recycle all electronics See where E-waste events are happening @ Indie Cycle

·     Compost Add to your compost bin all winter long. Don't have a compost bin yet? Could be a great "green" present for your household.
