- 5 Ways to Reduce Holiday Trash
The holiday season‘s upon us. And with Hanukah, Christmas, Kwanza and other year-end holiday celebrations comes presents. And with presents comes wrapping paper. Mounds and mounds of wrapping paper, along with boxes, holiday cards, letters and the like.
All that paper can be an eco disaster.
According to the EPA, we Americans generate 1 million tons of household waste during the holidays. That’s a massive 25 percent spike in waste from the standard 4 million tons of household trash each year. Just tossing the Christmas cards alone could fill an entire football stadium.
