A Green(er) Christmas

December 27, 2008

This year was a little different from past ones. We not only bought each other significantly less gifts we also tried to be cognizant of purchasing less waste. I bought John 3 desk organizer items made of bamboo for his new office. Mom bought me bamboo knitting needles and overall we had a large reduction in boxes, paper, tape etc. We saved all of our paper to use as fire starters. That is when the cold weather returns. Somehow 40 degrees doesn’t feel that cold anymore. I don’t even wear a normal coat for that…just a rain coat but I digress. This Christmas we put a lot more thought into our purchases and didn’t buy any large items. The largest thing purchased was an Ott light for John but if you have ever used an Ott light you understand. They’re fantastic!
Anyway, the point of all this is to say I think it’s important that we all think through our purchases and consider the impact of our choices on the environment.
