Easy ways to go green this holiday season:

  • Swap out incandescent holiday lights for LED ones. LEDs last longer, use less energy, and are Energy Star qualified.
  • Instead of using alkaline batteries, consider using rechargeable batteries.
  • Receive less mailings by having your name taken off of mailing lists. Most companies have an 800 number you can call to have your name removed from these lists.
  • Did you know? Wrapping paper and gift wrap is hard to recycle, due to it being a low grade of paper. Place these materials with your other household trash. Consider using alternatives such as comics from newspapers, calendars, posters, etc.
