A Guide to Eco-friendly Choices After the Holidays 

Once the festive glow of the holidays begins to fade, let's carry the spirit of celebration into the new year with a commitment to environmental stewardship. The choices we make in the aftermath of the holiday season can have a lasting impact on our planet. Here are some simple yet impactful ways to continue being environmentally conscious:

1. Recycle and Dispose Responsibly:    Ensure proper disposal of holiday decorations, wrapping paper, and packaging materials. Participate in electronic waste recycling programs to responsibly discard old devices.   Donate or sell items you no longer need, contributing to a circular economy.  

2. Responsible Tree Reuse or Disposal:   Often times at least one beach is looking to restore its dunes and Christmas trees catch and hold onto the sand aiding the effort.  Another use could be for birds to shelter and stay warm within between their food foraging. If disposing of your tree, Rose Hill transfer station offers free tree/wreath recycling.

3. Upcycling and Repurposing:   Unleash your creativity by repurposing holiday decorations for future celebrations or crafts.  Give gift wrap a second life through upcycling or finding alternative uses.

4. Energy-efficient Practices:   Keep the festive spirit alive with energy-efficient lighting in your home.   Be mindful of energy consumption by turning off lights when not in use.  Conserve fuel by letting the sun in during the daytime and closing drapes/shades in the evening. 

5. Eco-friendly Resolutions:  Set resolutions that align with sustainability goals for the upcoming year.  Explore ways to reduce your carbon footprint and live a more eco-friendly lifestyle.

Let's make every day an opportunity to contribute to the well-being of our planet. Together, we can sustain the holiday spirit of giving and gratitude throughout the year.

Wishing you a green and vibrant new year!
