Greening Your Holiday Season

bath saltsAs the hustle and bustle of the holiday season approaches, try to breathe deeply and know that there are many ways to keep your earth stewardship alive this time of year. Reduce your carbon footprint by helping to limiting your part in the viscous waste cycle and shopping frenzy that is inevitable with the Holiday Season. Keep your sanity & dodge the crowds. Instead of shopping at the big box stores, support local “mom and pop” shops.

Here are several eco friendly tips:

1) Re-use gift wrap, tissue paper and gift bags.

2 )Wrap your gifts in old magazines. Since we are farmers, we use old seed catalogs to wrap gifts.

3) Switch to reusable gift wrapping such as fabric, cloth bags, and twine. Engage your family members in a “green gift wrapping contest” to inspire them to be a little more eco-friendly.



4) Give useful, practical and thoughtful gifts.
