Green Holiday Tips

November 27, 2011

Leslee Spraggins, The Nature Conservancy's state director, joined us in our ABC7 studio to talk about the annual Green Gift Monday campaign and environmentally-friendly holiday options.


1. Gift-wrapping alternatives
- Use old maps
- Use old calendars with pretty pages

2. E-cards are more "green" than regular cards

3. Turn regular cards from last year into gift tags

4. Choose LED lights

5. Buy a tree
- Fake trees are made of PVC, which requires a lot of electricity to produce
- New trees are quickly replanted for each one cut down
