The holiday season is here which means lots of gift-giving, parties, and celebrations. With all of that going on, it can come with a lot of waste. Below we have outlined some ways you can aim to have a more environmentally friendly holiday season!
1. DIY Wrapping Paper – Most mass-produced wrapping paper is not recyclable because of the shiny material. Try using newspaper, bandanas, and even old wrapping paper that you might have saved from your last gift.
2. Use Energy-Efficient Holiday Lights – Instead of using conventional holiday lights try using LED holiday lights. LED lights use 90% less energy than conventional holiday lights, and that reduction in energy can result in valuable money saved.
3. Recycle Your Tree – Every year millions of Christmas trees end up in the landfill. This year think about recycling your Christmas tree, Dallas, Denton, and Fort Worth all have programs to do so.
4. Give Experiences – Instead of physical gifts, give experiences. Take a tour, boat ride or fishing experience at local lakes like Eagle Mountain Lake, White Rock Lake or Grapevine Lake.
