- Reduce waste at Christmas using creative, eco-friendly alternatives
- Spend and consume less while enjoying more quality time with friends and family
WHY IT MATTERS
- Tons and tons of waste is produced over the holidays. From Thanksgiving to Christmas household waste increases by 25%. Don’t our landfills deserve a little Christmas cheer too? We think so!
The season of giving is here. That means holiday cards, giftwrap, gift bags, ribbons, bows, tissue paper, gift tags, stickers, party crackers, packaging, packaging, and more packaging, oh my! And it’s not Christmas without a tree, right? Well, the tree gets lights, ornaments, garland, more ribbon, a tree stand and tree skirt. Unfortunately, most of these items are never recycled, leaving Christmas the most un-wonderfully wasteful time of the year.
We have some helpful ideas for your Future friendly Christmas.
FuturePlanet wishes you an environmentally friendly holiday season!
