A Last Minute Thought or Two

It is great that so many people are trying to be green this Christmas. My neighbourhood is chock full of LED lights, and my inbox with eCards and Christmas eLetters.

For those last minute shoppers, remember to take your reusable bags to the mall to cut down on waste. Consider wrapping your purchases in normal paper (which of course you can decorate liberally), newspaper, or pages out of a magazine. Don’t use tissue paper at all and hang on to gift bags for next year.

And lastly, if you just can’t come up with the perfect gift for someone, perhaps you should buy a Christmas goat to feed a family in a less-privileged country or adopt a whale. There are a lot of opportunities to help those in need this Christmas, and for the person that has everything, that might just be the ticket.

Have a great Holiday everyone! We’ll see you in the New Year!
