Seasons Greetings from!

It's hard to believe that the holiday season is upon us!

Admittedly, I get as wrapped up in decorating, singing, baking and celebrating as the next person, but when I learned that from Thanksgiving to New Year's Day, household waste increases by more than 25%, I started researching ways to protect our environment during this joyful time of year.

I took time to put together a list of easy ways we can work together to lessen our carbon footprint while still enjoying the season to the fullest.

I challenge you to adopt a few new "green" traditions this season and feel good about helping our Earth!
