Eco-Friendly Holiday Tips:

  • Use “Green” Cleaning Products – We all want our homes to be spotless for holiday guests.  As you start to tidy things up, use mild, biodegradable and natural cleaning products.  These types of products are better for the environment, and easier on your home!
  • Opt For a Locally Grown Tree – If you’re purchasing a real tree this year, look for trees that are sold locally (not shipped in from miles away).  At the end of the season, be sure to recycle your tree!
  • Use LED Lights – If lights are an important part of your holiday celebration, switch to LED bulbs!  The are more sustainable than regular lights and will last you a longer period of time.
  • Use Beeswax Candles – Candles are often a holiday staple.  However, many candles are made of paraffin wax, a petroleum product.  Instead, opt for soy or natural beeswax candles.
