Sustainable wrapping

'Tis the season for joy, traditions, celebration... and waste! Americans produce one million extra tons of trash than the rest of the year between Thanksgiving and New Year's. Bah humbug!   

Don't let waste dim the holiday spirit! It's easy to make switches from decor and wrapping to gifts and cooking to create a merry, bright and waste free holiday season.
