Reducing During the Holidays

Tis the season to reduce your impact on the environment. With the holiday season it is easy to forget to forget how much of an impact the things we do can have an effect of the environment. However, reducing waste this time of year is easier than you may think. A few ways to reduce your impact are to use LED holidays lights and turn them off during the day, send E- holiday cards instead of paper cards, save or compost your leftovers instead of throwing them out, use reusable bags when shopping, use recycled paper to wrap gifts, donate to conservation efforts in loved one’s names instead of purchasing gifts, and continue to reduce by following normal routines during the holidays. It can be difficult to stay on track during the holidays, but it is always important to preserve our environment and remember that every action makes a difference.
