Use these tips to add more green to your holidays:

• Re-use those gift bags. That sparkly Santa bag your aunt used to wrap last year’s gift was better than the gift itself. Pass it along to someone special this year. 

• Make your own gift bags from recycled material. Enlist family and friends to help.

• Deck the halls with LED lights. LEDs create brighter and more direct illumination. They also contain no toxic materials. Pretty and environmentally friendly.

• Re-think wrapping paper. Traditional wrapping paper cannot be recycled. Use newspaper instead, making your gift more green, personable and unique!

• Purchase a real tree. Real trees are renewable, recyclable & help support farming.
