4 Ways to Go Green this Holiday Season

1. Make your own wrapping paper. Sounds crazy, we know, but most mass produced wrapping paper is not recyclable because of shiny coatings, foils and colors. Wrap presents in old maps, newspaper or kid’s artwork or a scarf {2 presents in 1!}. 

2. Buy energy saving holiday lights. Using LED lights to decorate, you can save your family up to $50 on your energy bills this holiday season. Did you know if everyone used LED lights for the holidays, the savings would be enough to power 200,000 homes for a year, according to one US Department of Energy study.

3. Shop and eat locally! Not only does your money stay here and go back into the local economy, you are reducing environmental impact, transportation costs are decreased and you’re encouraging local prosperity in your community. 

4. Recycle your Christmas tree. Each year, 10 million Christmas trees end up in the landfill. While your tree won’t fit in your recycling bin, Nauset Disposal offers a Christmas tree pickup program for customers. We’ll bring your tree to a grinding facility, where it’s turned into mulch. Just give us a call for details on the pick up schedule.
