HOME SWEET GREEN HOME HOLIDAYS
There's no place like home, especially during the holidays. And best of all you can save time, energy, and money by "traveling" your own neighborhood. Think of it this way... everything you need is right at home. And you and your family can pretend you're a tourist visiting your own town.
Here in Asheville the Biltmore Estate is one place we plan on visiting. Did you know that .if each family reduced holiday gasoline consumption by one gallon (about twenty miles), we'd reduce greenhouse gas emissions by one million tons?
Here's a list of neighborly going green savings tips:
Rather than piling up "stuff" under the tree, think about what friends and family really want or need. Try giving gift certificates if you don't know what someone wants, or simply make a donation in his or her name to a favorite charity.
Give gifts that encourage others to use less stuff, like a book about making crafts from reusable items, cookbook for leftovers, reusable tote bags.
We love homemade food or something our neighbors made from reused items.
What would you add to this list?
