Holidays & Recreation

  • Consider making green gifts that either you make, save energy, or are good for the environment or community
  • Make a donation to a charity in the name of a person instead of giving them a gift
  • Use LED holiday lights to save on energy
  • There are no organic regulations for Christmas trees and the plastic ones are made with PVC
  • Consider getting a permit to cut down your own
  • Consider planting or donating a tree after the holidays
  • Avoid vinyl (PVC) masks on Halloween that smell like shower curtains and go for latex that smell like balloons.
  • Make your own masks with water based or latex paint and non toxic glue
  • Use a reusable bag for trick or treating instead of a plastic 1
