The idea of a ‘green Christmas’ can seem a bit of an oxymoron. How can a festival that has evolved into a celebration of consumption possibly square with consume-less eco-consciousness? This report can show you how. Consider:
- Feasting without food miles – Local, free range and organic is better tasting and better for the environment.
- Thoughtful gifts include the gift of services (dogwalking, babysitting, cooking), experiences (movie tickets, museum membership), social services (Seva Foundation, Heifer International).
- Deck the halls and rent a live christmas tree (to be planted after the holidays in a watershed).
