As much as the Holidays are a wonderful time of year, sadly they can be incredibly wasteful too. However, there are little things you can do to make your Holiday a bit “greener”.
Recycling your wrapping paper and Christmas cards can give you some eco warm and fuzzies. But millions of tons of Christmas cards and wrapping paper can wind up in landfills if they are infused with glitter which is then REJECTED for recycling. Bummer!!
Perhaps get more creative and opt for seeded, plantable wrapping paper and Xmas cards that grow!
I came across a company called Botanical Paperworks. It’s a bounty of Seeded Paper that Grows. Boy did I hit the proverbial Motherlode!!
They have all kinds of seeded promotional items for all kinds of events and occasions. From greeting cards, wedding invites etc., they have an entire Green Gifts Guide with “Eco-Friendly, Plantable Gifts for All Occasions”. All I can say is yay!!
“Each year, communities across the world celebrate Earth Day as a way to increase awareness of environmental issues”
Earth Day is right around the corner on April 22.
It may be viewed as just for “Treehuggers”. However, if you’re a business owner (who wants to make the world a better place with their products or services), then participating in a local Earth Day event could be a golden opportunity to introduce people to the things you offer and or do!
Depending on where you live, many of these are free community events organized by a city’s local Sustainable Council and created to showcase companies, agencies and organizations that provide products, services, resources and information to assist and educate residents in making more sustainable choices.
I’m a mighty big fan of this big, blue marble we call home. I love the trees and the critters we share it with too. So I get pretty excited when Earth Day rolls around.
This begs to ask the question: are you just into making a buck with your business – or are you looking to make a difference too?
Earth Hour 2017 is just about upon us. It’s time to
“Turn Up The Dark”
Earth Hour 2017 coming up this weekend. In staying with my roots as an advocate for this big blue marble we call home, I like to dedicate a post to this event. So it’s time for a shout out for Mother Earth!
“Each year, millions of people around the globe unite for an hour to celebrate our amazing planet. Will you join us for Earth Hour in 2017?”
In 2016 over 12,700 major landmarks switched off the lights, 178 countries and territories participated and 2.4 million people got involved and took actions.
Considering all the craziness going on with our current reckless administration – wanting to strip away important protections for clean air and water like the EPA, this is important – now more than ever!
