Christmas is just five days away! I love Christmas and all the celebrations that go along with it, but I have also become more aware over the past few years of all the excess and waste that is created around the holidays. In America, an additional one million tons of waste is created each holiday season!
So, our family has made an effort to make simple changes that really help to reduce the overall impact of our holiday celebrations on the earth. And I love to get my kids involved and teach them that the holidays are an important time as ever to think about ways that we can reduce, reuse and recycle.
Maybe you’re all finished with your shopping and preparing, maybe you’re not (like me!). But either way, you can include your kids in helping you take a few easy steps to make your holiday celebrations a little greener this year.
