Blog Question of the Week: How are you going green for the holidays?

Ever wanted to tell EPA what you thought on an environmental topic? Each week, you have your chance in the EPA blog, Greenversations. Each question is an open-ended blog entry; please share your thoughts as comments.

This week’s question:

How are you going green for the holidays?
During the holiday season we shop, decorate, entertain, and travel more than usual. But all these activities can affect the environment, for example, with more energy used for lighting, or increased recycling.

¿Cómo piensa adoptar prácticas verdes durante las fiestas?
Durante las fiestas normalmente compramos, decoramos, agasajamos y viajamos más de lo habitual. Sin embargo, estas actividades afectan el medio ambiente, por ejemplo, al utilizar más energía para el alumbrado o aumentar el reciclaje.

Post your answer below.  Maybe it can become part of our next newsletter.

    I am not using wrapping paper this Christmas. Instead, I am using colorful curling ribbon and raffia ribbon to tie bows on the gifts.

    it was supposed to be planted in the woods but Pepsi built a building there.
    Then I will transplant or fine a spot for it in the spring….
