Did you know waste generation sky rockets around the holidays? We make about 1/4 more waste in these short cold months.
Perhaps you're already down with getting and giving presents that create less waste. After the holiday season, I plan to share some of my ideas with you of what I did this year. (Can't show you now, or the recipients on my list would know what they're getting!) but... I will share with you a whole list of ideas:
From the Natural Resources Defense Council
From World Wildlife Fund
From Changing the Present
Treehugger has their guides broken into type of gift-recipient (geek, foodie, kids, etc.)
Buy carbon offsets from TerraPass
The Daily Green has a great list of lists.
If you're wondering what I'm making this holiday season, my Pinterest board of handmade gift ideas might be a good place to start.
Happy Environmentally Friendly Holidays to you and yours!
