Go Green for the Holidays
Email this article

Nancy Drumheller, Public Information Coordinator for the Central
Virginia Waste Management Authority, shared ways to reduce our
Ecological Footprint (EF) during the holiday season during the Go Green
meeting on Tuesday, December 1st.   

From Thanksgiving to New Year’s Day, household waste increases by more than
25%.  There are a number of ways you can modify your choices this holiday season
to reduce the amount of waste you create.

From
the HOLIDAY
CARDS
you send, to the GIFTS
you buy and the type of GIFT
WRAP
you use, to the PARTY
you host, we hope you find these tips helpful this month and all year long.  If TREES
are part of your holiday celebration, please recycle them.
