Greener Holidays

Posted on 30 October, 2012 at 10:41
Okay I'm not going to lie...I love the holidays.  I'm really big on family and love to cook.  I've also learned that feeding the masses is really satisfying.  BUT it kind of drives me crazy the frenzy over what to buy for loved ones and sorting out the thoughtful from the easy buy.  It seems to be getting harder to accomplish the more rapid paced our society is becoming.  I mean there's already a new iPad out 6 months after the release of the last one.  What person can keep up with that?  I am really starting to notice the abundance of waste out there.  Why is there 100 different kinds of wrapping paper at one particular superstore and only 4 of those rolls are made from recycled paper?  Shouldn't it all be from recycled paper?  I don't know about you, but I rip my presents open with the intent of never using the paper again. Don't get me wrong, I am not saying don't wrap presents but maybe there needs to be an emphasis on greener holidays.  If you get a new computer, let's recycle the old one not store it (trust me they don't gain value).  Let's make an extra effort to recycle the boxes and papers that can be, maybe actually finish the whole roll of wrapping paper from last year.  Anyone else see this?  I wonder if you have a greener holiday tradition?  I would love to know.
 
OOOH, I am a PINTREST junky...there are great ideas on recycled stuff.  My favorite this week...taking last years Christmas cards and cutting them into cute sized present tags for the coming holiday. Wr

HI rightbackatcha & yes I am HUGE on recycling as well. One trick I learned from my mother before we knew about recycling was to wrap Christmas presents innewspaper ~ Anduse the comics for the kids or anyone for the colors....takes care of old newspapers & wraping paper...and yes we use old Christmas cards for the tags as well.
**I can't stand to have these old broken computer parts just collecting dust but I refuse to put them out for trash.... And that they are already obsolete once they are "out the door" is crazy... as bad as a new car being depreciated...crazy.
