In the Wake of Christmas Lies
… lots of waste! Here’s the truth about our heavy holiday footprint. Between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Day, U.S. household waste increases 25%; 1,000,000 extra tons hit the landfills. You may be surprised but to go green for this Christmas, the National Resources Defense Council says real trees are more eco-friendly. In the world of convenience, it’s so nice to put up a pre-lit Christmas tree and not hassle with the pine needles, watering the tree and putting lights on it. Did you know that 80% of American households display artificial trees? Another solution is to not buy a cut tree or pre-lit artificial trees; there are many stores that sell potted fir trees that even flocked, from small to large in size.
