Invest in LEDs

It’s almost time to hang your holiday lights and decorate your home and yard, and if you’re like most of our environmentally conscious customers, then you might be concerned about how much energy your holiday decor will consume. It’s true that lights and decorations will draw a significant amount of power, but you can reduce your energy consumption by purchasing LED-powered lights and decor. LED lights last up to 25 times longer than standard incandescent bulbs, and they can also cut your energy usage by up to 80 percent. With budgets already tight this time of year, making an investment in LEDs is a great way to save money without being a Scrooge.

Be Careful With Your Tree Choice 

With the holiday season just around the corner, you might be wondering whether real trees or artificial trees are an environmentally smart choice. Believe it or not, artificial trees are actually more environmentally detrimental than real trees. Artificial trees are generally made overseas using low-quality plastic components that will not degrade until hundreds of years from now, and this means that they will sit in landfills once they’ve been outdated by new models. Instead of purchasing an artificial tree that may end up doing more harm than good in the long run, see if your area has a supplier who sustainably grows trees and offers to recycle them at the end of the season.

Alternatively, you can seek out a living tree that still has its roots attached. Yes, you read that correctly — eco-conscious holiday enthusiasts around the United States have started programs that allow families to rent living trees for the holiday season. When January rolls around, the trees are picked up and then sold to landscapers, national parks, and other vendors who are looking for affordable trees. This is by far the best way to celebrate the holidays while also being kind to the planet!

Give Green Gifts

One of the most effective ways to live in an environmentally friendly way is to get your friends and family members involved. We know that many of our customers are shopping for natural skin care products online this time of year, and purchasing one of the many great items in our catalog for a loved one is a fantastic way to show them that you care. Whether you’re shopping for natural body oils or a gift card that they can use to buy something that catches their eye, you can rest assured that you’re shopping in an environmentally friendly way when you make a purchase with Green Tidings.

These are just a few of the ways you can help protect the environment. Keep an eye on our blog page, as we’ll continue to explain even more easy and affordable ways to go green this winter.
