5 Ways to Go Green This Season
How to start switching to more sustainable products? First things that come to mind when people think about this are choosing organic products, replacing items in the makeup bag, and switching to healthier household cleaners. But this is just the beginning of making a real change. There are more things that can be done to go green, but it is the holiday season that really enlarges this list. To make it easy for you, I have created a list of top 5 things that you can do to go green during this holiday season. Will you join me?
That’s what we start with. Just choose to eat local organic food. If you’re eating out, see the list of the restaurants and cafes that you have nearby, check their ratings on Trip Advisor or similar services, and pay a visit. If you’re planning a family dinner, go to the organic store at farmers’ market. Most of the organic markets should have all the products you need. When going to the store, be sure to get the Blue Avocado convertible market tote. It’s a food safe and water-resistant bag, which makes it a great choice for organic groceries.
Reusable Wrapping Paper
I’m not saying about re-using the old wrapping paper; though, sometimes it’s a good idea. I mean something completely different. And this something requires some creativity from you. Instead of buying new wrapping paper every time the new holiday season comes, try to find items at your home that can serve the same purpose. Maybe, you have some road maps or fabric? There are a lot of ways that you can make wrapping presents an eco-friendly action.
Deck The Halls…with LED lights!
They are safe, and they use less energy than traditional sources of light. Think of it – LED lights last up to 10 times longer than their alternatives. In addition to this, you will save money on your electricity bills.
Bring Your Own Bag
All of us know that extensive shopping leads to huge amount of unused shopping bags. While you can recycle your shopping bags, the best way is to use the Blue Avocado convertible market tote, mentioned in point number one. It’s a perfect reusable bag to carry all the necessary items. It easily converts from a big bag to a little thing that can fit into your pocket or purse. As for the receipts, you can ask to e-mail them instead of printing when it is possible.
Love Your Leftovers
When it comes to the holiday season, big meals are a must to most families. Not just family gathering but also celebrations with coworkers lead to lots of leftovers. Again, I advise you to use zip seal gallon bag produced by Blue Avocado to store the leftovers if you’re trying to be more eco-friendly. They’re freezer-sage, easy to reuse, and clean. What else could you ask for?
There are more ways to go green this holiday season! Use all of them.
