Other Hints For Greener Living:


  • IT’S A WRAP
  • Instead of wrapping gifts in glossy, nonrecyclable paper, cloak them in reusable items such as canvas bags, scarves, or drawstring pouches.

  • TREE-CLE DOWN THEORY
  • Don’t just toss your Christmas tree on the curb after the holidays. Many cities have Christmas tree recycling programs that turn trees into mulch or wood chips.
