With the holiday spirit quickly approaching, many "eco curious" clients have expressed confusion as to what it means to live green during the holidays.  As described in our sustainability consulting practice, living green or sustainable living is a primary focus on eco awareness with actions towards reducing ones carbon footprint, managing waste, and embracing sustainability concepts in decision making.   Holidays are can be a great kick off or focal point for going green.    As a green living consultant, I think of it as a softened approach to assist clients to ease the transition from "eco curious” to "eco living". It's a graceful way of learning that a sustainable lifestyle is not an all or nothing approach.  And yet, each eco action you take on behalf of the environment does make a difference.   Promoting a sustainable lifestyle can take all forms and shapes.  What is important is that each person finds the unique value in sustainability and its application in their life.  Living your environmental values inspires others, so why not take eco action and create some green traditions this holiday season?    Consider creating your green holiday traditions as a means to further promote eco awareness and unite loved ones with similarly shared values.  Looking for ideas?  Explore some of the resources we offer in our personal consulting on living green.  Find eco actions that speak to you and think of ways to integrate those sustainability concepts into your holidays: click here to continue reading.
