People often say you need time to change habits. No better time to look at your eco-friendly habits and begin the change in your holidays. Start the way you want to continue your life.
1. If you have bought a ‘real’ tree then find somewhere that will recycle it and turn it into compost so it keeps living. Mt Gabriel has three places you can buy trees and you can return them to them for composting too. They will take your tree even if you didn’t buy it form them.
2. Give a cityhop car share membership. If you have a student in your house give them a membership and buy some hours so they can have wheels when they need them but not have the expense of a car. Think about what you are doing for the environment by giving the gift of sharing too!
3. Buy local. While you are relaxing and have the time, check out your local farmer’s market instead of the super market, and buy the freshest ingredients around.
