8 Reasons for Green Living this Christmas

I have a goal to start thinking about green living this Christmas.

Christmas is not only a time for goodwill toward all but also for its care of Mother Earth. “All of nature reflects the wonder of this beautiful season” – A quote from one of my favorite Christmas cards.

8 Reasons to Go Green this Christmas:

ONE:

Green living at the holiday helps one think more conscientiously and less commercially, allowing us to focus on the true spirit of Christmas.

TWO:

Even just small steps toward green living will lessen our typically greater carbon footprint over the holiday.

THREE:

Simplifying things reduces clutter, over-spending, and big messes.

FOUR:

Green decorating with real branches, tree trimmings, holly, pine cones, beeswax and soy candles creates a fresh and elegant feel to a room.

FIVE:

Natural decorations makes our homes smell like the holidays!

SIX:

Using current supplies of extra Christmas cards from last year, wrapping paper, bows & ribbons, and even packing material for creative wrapping saves money, reduces clutter, and frees-up storage space.

SEVEN:

Green living at Christmas saves energy, likely resulting in lower heating and electrical bills!

EIGHT:

Going green over the holidays not only helps the environment, but it often helps our mental well-being.
