Tips for a green Christmas

No matter how snowy it is where you live, you can have a green Christmas. Each year in the U.S., approximately $75 billion is spent on Christmas gifts, 1.9 billion cards are sent and 20.8 million trees are cut. This year, you can save a little money and the environment by carefully choosing eco-friendly gifts and décor. It’s easier than you think. Gifts Shop local. Transportation of goods contributes to greenhouse gas emissions and global warming. Buying from local producers reduces environment impact and supports the local economy. In addition, money spent at local businesses generates 3.5 times more wealth...

Among the many activities of the program, the children measured their carbon footprint, made bumper stickers and toured several sites where people are combating global warming. Behind the school is a small wooded area. As part of their work, the children went there and imagined what would happen...

There are nuggets of truth in all of this, but it would be better to change the statement to read: If we choose to, we can meet 100% of our energy needs with renewable energy using the...
