Subscribe to this Blogger's RSS feed

No time of the year is more emotional than the holiday season, whether you’re bursting with the joy of baking and caroling or overwhelmed with the stress of shopping and wrapping. But even with all those other factors weighing on your mind, it’s possible to put a green spin on your holidays. Here are 5 simple tips from Planet Green to help you out this holiday season.

1. Gift List
Going green can mean anything from simply buying fewer gifts to finding Fair Trade alternatives to holiday classics. Look for recycled paper goods, like cards and wrapping, or get creative and make your own versions of both.

2. Green meals
Green your Christmas dinner with seasonal, local ingredients and organic turkeys, and stock your bar with organic bubbly and other green cocktails.

3. Green your home
Look to green your home by choosing fresh wreaths and pesticide-free trees trimmed with energy-slashing LED lights. Put the money you saved on your electric bill toward a donation to environmental charities and let your greenbacks support green projects.

4. Traveling by car
Many car rental companies are getting on the band wagon and now offering fuel-efficient hybrids to their eco-friendly consumers. Places like Avis have a variety of green car options so you can not only cut your expenses during your holiday travel, but you can cut your harmful emissions as well.

5. Traveling by air

Remember the most important about the holidays is just being around the ones you love and care about.
