  • For the holiday season:
  • reuse wrapping paper, packaging cartons and shipping materials for your gifts or get creative with useful wrapping - like hiding a piece of jewelry in a pair of mittens.
  • chip the Christmas tree - many municipalities will collect old tannenbaum and turn it into mulch for free
  • check with your municipality to see if they provide a recycling service for Christmas trees
  • consider buying a tree which can be planted later
  • buy holiday cards made from recycled paper or make your own creative cards
