Home Living : November 30th 2010
HLN - HOME LIVING: NORTH, Tuesday, November 30, 2010 5 It's a green season » ADVERTISING FEATUREHOMELIVING Dreaming of a green Christmas? It's possible, if you know where to look. Old habits die hard -- especially for festive fanatics -- but sourcing Christmas decorations from your own home and backyard can be a fun, environmentally friendly activity for the whole family. 1 Flick the switch. Save energy as well as some much-needed dollars off your electricity bill by canning the Christmas lights. Sure they draw in the crowds and look fantastic on the street but the energy used by those pretty little bulbs is affecting the environment. 2 Make your own gifts. Making naff, recycled cards or wrapping paper isn't everyone's cup of tea but by using leftover fruit, vegetables and pantry goods to make your own jams, chutneys, chocolates and biscuits you are able to give a more personalised gift while cutting down on wastage. 3 Festive foliage. Mix it up this Christmas by choosing a different style of native tree, plant or even branch to congregate around. Naked branches and twigs dressed up with homemade Christmas decorations bring the festive season forward a few centuries. It's a low maintenance type of tree is sure to attract a lot of attention. 4 Give the gift that gives. Avoid buying package and battery-laden presents for family and friends and instead opt for service or experience-based gifts. Vouchers for massages or manicures, concert tickets, magazine subscriptions and donations to charity are all thoughtful gifts that don't come with packaging, nor have they travelled miles to arrive under the Christmas tree. 5 Be green. When shopping for Christmas presents, buy from companies that are working towards reducing their impact on the environment.
