Happy Holidays Green Reminders

  • Over 60 years of life, it is estimated that the average conifer tree will absorb 1 TON of Carbon Dioxide.
  • Reducing the carbon footprint of an artificial tree to that below a living tree takes 20 years of re-use.
    • Suggestion: buy a potted tree that can be replanted after the holidays; if you do get a cut tree, find your local after Christmas tree recycling facility.
  • The amount of holiday cards sent out every year could fill a ten-story football stadium.
    • Suggestion: send seasonal greetings through e-mail to reduce waste.
  • Most mass-produced holiday wrapping paper CANNOT by recycled.
    • Suggestion: use newspaper or old wallpaper as wrapping, or better yet, give a gift of your time or a donation to a charity, bypassing the gift wrap altogether!
  • One string of LED decorative lights uses on average 90% less energy than traditional lights.
