It’s Christmas time (which is my FAVORITE time of year) and I just started wrapping presents the other day. While I was wrapping, I couldn’t help thinking about how wasteful I was being. With all the boxes that have been sent to my house, all the wrapping paper I’ve been using, I wanted to know how I could be better…So, I decided to look up ways to be more eco-friendly this Christmas, and I thought I would share:
1. Take reusable bags with you when gift shopping
This way you’re not using plastic or paper bags from the store!
2. Make sure you use LED lights for the tree
LED lights are up to 80 percent more efficient than traditional lighting such as fluorescent and incandescent lights.
3.) Use re-usable wrapping
Instead of using wrapping paper for all your presents, re-use gift bags, and ribbon as much as you can each year.
4.) Send E-Christmas Cards
Instead of sending a paper copy of your Christmas card, send it online instead!
5. Create a homemade wreath
There are so many easy ways to make wreaths from materials you already have in your house and yard, so why not get crafty and make your own wreath this year!?
