It is about that time of the year again when everyone is thinking about Christmas decorations, Christmas trees, and getting in the spirit of the holiday’s. Now is the time to start thinking about ways you can have an eco friendly Christmas.
There are two things I can think of right off the top of my head that people can do to have a greener holiday this year, aside from reducing holiday cards and wrapping papers. This year we will be enjoying the benefits of solar Christmas lights and real Christmas trees.
Instead of going to the store and buying the biggest, tallest, or greenest Christmas tree you can find, why don’t you go to a local Christmas tree farm and go for a live Christmas tree. If you are wondering what is green about a live Christmas tree, the simple fact that Christmas trees are a renewable resource, is the answer!
But artificial Christmas trees can be re-used right? Artificial Christmas trees can be reused, however, they are generally made from petroleum-based products and shipped from abroad. Not to mention, all of the packaging used for the boxes and the toxins omitted during manufacturing.
The next thing that pops into my mind would be the use of Christmas lights. This year, why don’t you go solar! Solar Christmas lights require no electricity! So, if you are looking for ways to reduce your energy use, there is one way right there! Solar Christmas lights can be used about any where traditional holiday lights can be used. Not to mention solar Christmas lights significantly reduce the amount of energy we would normally use during the holidays!
SOLAR NET LIGHTS let you decorate outside as you would normally do, without the use of electricity! LED lights charge by day and turn on/off automatically when the sun rises and sets. These solar lights runs up to 8 hours.
SOLAR POWERED ICICLE LIGHTS add shimmering beauty during the holidays and all season long without wires, dangerous cords, or expensive electric bills. Go “green” with your holiday decorations and you’ll still have an elegant display of bright Christmas lights!
