Have Yourself a Green Little Christmas
I am always amazed at how early Christmas decorations go up in stores. It's only October, but it's already the season to be jolly.
I'm posting about the book seen above, "Green Christmas: How to Have a Joyous, Eco-Friendly Holiday Season," now, because the holidays really are just around the corner, and if we're going to 'green' our endeavors, it may take some pre-planning and a little extra effort.
Christmas is all about traditions for everyone in the family, young and old. It's a wonderful time to instill the notion of leaving a lighter footprint in our celebrations and practices, so our children will grow up in an environment where Mother Earth truly is their most blessed, cherished gift.
"Green Christmas" is a great, handy guide which is filled with as many bright bulbs (of wisdom) as a seemingly endless strand of Christmas tree lights. Pick it up and read about how to prepare a "no meat" Christmas dinner, compile a list of eco-savvy gifts to please everyone, or learn how to give fewer, more meaningful gifts. Discover green destinations and travel tips if you'll be spending your holiday on vacation, or review a comparison chart on artificial trees vs. real trees if you'll be nestling up at home.
I love that this book offers a range of tiny, simple ideas to grand, sweeping gestures for every person on the green spectrum. Whether you live by candlelight and are a pro at composting, or you just drank your last bottled water yesterday and are still getting the knack of recycling, this book will appeal to everyone's comfort level.
So bring on the joy to the world by keeping our planet green during the Christmas season. Pick up "Green Christmas" here to learn how!
