Green Holiday Tips
Money is tight, especially around the holidays. There
are many budget-friendly things you can do to be especially
eco-festive this year!
Tired of using the same decorations year after year?
Your neighbors probably are too! Swap decorations for
a whole new look without spending a dime.
Make sure your outside lights are on a timer.
Send your holiday greetings electronically.
If you buy new lights this year, be sure to purchase LED
lights. Not only do they use significantly less
electricity, they last longer!
