Let’s face it; most of us consume much more than usual during the holiday season. But is this over consumption truly beneficial, or necessary? Here are some ideas to help you green up your holiday season!

- Avoid buying foil wrapping paper, which often cannot be recycled

- Wrap gifts in recycled wrapping paper or fabric and decorate with materials such as photos, buttons, and candies 

- Place a recycling bin close by when opening gifts, and sort the recyclables as you go

- Avoid travelling alone, carpool when possible

- Opt for handmade or locally-produced gifts
