We love the holiday season (joyous energy, decorations, & quality time), but one thing we could do without is the extra waste produced during this time of year.
In fact, in the United States and Canada, household waste increases an average of 25% during the holiday season which adds up to nearly 25 million more tons of garbage in the US and 545,000 tons in Canada. (That’s A LOT of waste!)
Reducing your environmental impact during the holidays doesn’t have to be hard. We invite you to make a simple shift by shopping from sustainable companies that love Mother Earth as much as you do. Here are some of our favorites.
