Did you know that we’re in the “trash” season – as well as the holiday season? According to the EPA, from Thanksgiving to New Year’s Day the average amount of household trash increases by 25 percent! All of this extra trash during the holidays can add up to one million tons of waste per week.
The holidays should be a time for friends, family and happiness – but taking steps to stay eco-friendly is important, too. You don’t have to buy new decorations or wrapping this year. By using recycled materials in your holiday décor you’ll save money, break out of the cycle of buying too much and reduce the waste we all create at the end of the year.
