Some tips to go green for the holidays:
Buy recycled wrapping paper-better yet, use newspaper
Buy someone an eco-friendly gift like an aluminum water bottle so as to promote eco-consciousness, limiting use of plastics.
Instead of purchasing a plastic tree from WalMart, invest in a real, locally-grown Christmas Tree if it is Christmas that you celebrate! Did you know that oil is a main ingredient in plastic production? So, investing in a fake tree could be considered an indirect way to support foreign oil in the Middle East and the consumption of a nonrenewable resource.
Re-gift! Ok, that may not be the best idea, but it's worth a shot.
That's all I have for now! Stay tuned for more "Go Green for the Holiday" tips in December and some exciting videos in January, posted from the beautiful island of Maui!
