    Great ideas! I have to admit this isn’t something I always keep top of mind – but we do have an artificial tree ?

    Great advice! I have a couple of recycled gift wrapping ideas, like using children’s artwork as wrapping paper. When i lived in Japan most presents were wrapped in fabric.

    My favorites from your list are re-gifting, disposable plates, and artificial tree, We all have those items we will not use that maybe someone will love, dishes ugh i hate doing them after a big party, and I’ve always had an artificial tree.

    All great ideas. For the ultimate green Christmas…and if you live in a place that has this ability…go to a Christmas tree farm and dig up the whole tree. Root ball and all! Keep it in a very large planter or barrel until the season is over, then replant it. I can’t do this in Florida, but I SO wish I could. Thanks for a great article. I’m all about recycling!

      That’s a super idea Gina! I wish more farms promoted that as an option rather than cutting down the tree.

    I love this. My mom raised us to be conscious of the way holidays can be so excessive. Now our holidays are always simple and small, and in turn, more “green.” Great ideas!

      I love that Chantal, what a wise mama you have! 🙂

    I can imagine the crazy amount of waste during the holidays. Just our family of 3 creates 2 trash bags of wrapping paper and empty packaging after opening presents. We’ve used an artificial tree for many years. Great ideas on making the Christmas greener!

    These are great tips on how to be green this Christmas. The cost of living green is minimal and it only takes a couple of small changes to make a difference. I have no problem with re-gifting.

      I grew up with a real Christmas trees and it probably was a hassle for my dad but I did like the smell. If they can figure out how to harvest trees sustainable for paper and furniture, why not Christmas trees? 🙂

      That being said, we do use an artificial tree in my family and it is much less hassle to setup and take down.

      Still waiting for the GMO tree where the needles are drought-resistant. haha You don’t have to be an accountant to know that the ROI would be huge. I think everyone would make the switch from trees that die after a week or so.
