This little book with the long name, Green Christmas, How to Have a Joyous, Eco-Friendly Holiday Season, stuffs a ton of suggestions on how to have a green Christmas into a small package.
Frankly, if you have been keeping up on how to green your holidays and paying attention to all the green holiday tips in the media, not much in this book will come as new information to you. But, it's nice to have all of the information distilled down into one reference book.
If greening your Christmas is new to you, this makes for an excellent resource giving you the scoop on holiday parties, Christmas cards, gift wrap and ye old yule log. It would also make a nice gift to friends and relatives who might need, ahem, a little nudge towards less holiday waste.
As green awareness spreads over middle America, more and more people want to have a fun, environmentally responsible holiday. This book shows how to enjoy the Christmas season while leaving a smaller carbon footprint.
Readers will learn how to do the following: choose between a real tree and an artificial one; find alternatives to holiday cards; avoid the holiday catalog crunch; find or make gifts that are green or teach green; have warm, cozy green fires; create eco-responsible lighting displays, and more! Readers can have a great holiday celebration—while caring for the planet and setting a great example for generations to come.
