Are you thinking of adding a little green living magic to your Christmas this year? There are a lot of opportunities to make your Christmas more earth friendly. Let’s start with the Christmas tree – some companies have started offering a Christmas tree rental. These trees are potted, the company brings the tree to you and then retrieves it 3-4 weeks later. In some instances you can even adopt the same tree. It comes to your house every year, you can watch it grow!

For gifting consider giving gifts you have made yourself and wrap them in reusable fabric, or use the pages of older magazines to wrap your gift. My family has a tradition of gift bags that we use pull out and reuse every year, just attaching a new recipient card to it. We usually make the recipient cards out of scrap paper.
