Gift Suggestion – gift cards, concert tickets, restaurant certificates, and movie vouchers -all great alternatives to heavily packaged and wrapped presents. And, if
purchased online, you not only save packaging waste, you also reduce time waste & stress associated with crowds & traffic!
LED lights – they are more expensive, but when you replace your existing lights with LED the (usage) savings is tremendous, and they last a long, long, long time!!
Ribbons, bows & wrap – if 40% of US households reduced holiday paper consumption by just 2 sheets this year, the savings could ‘gift wrap’ Manhattan Island….
Think about it!
Will you take a small step to help?
