Rethink Waste During The Holiday Season
The average Canadian household generates 25% more waste during the holiday season. Do your part this holiday season to help protect the environment by finding ways to reduce, reuse and recycle.
Check out our helpful guide of environmentally friendly ways to rethink waste during the holidays – and celebrate the season to the fullest.
Make memories, not waste! Gifts or activities you make yourself are always extra special. These types of gifts are meaningful, but also help reduce excess waste created during the holidays.
One of the easiest (and most creative) ways to reduce waste during the holidays is by finding ways to reuse your holiday trash. While many items like embellished holiday cards and gift bags cannot be recycled, they’re easily reused and made new with a little imagination!
Recycling is one of the easiest things we can do to protect the environment. It is important to know what can and cannot be recycled during the holiday season to ensure your waste ends up in the right place.
“The best of the holidays comes from the wealth we create through relationships – to ourselves, to each other and to nature”
– David Suzuki
During the holidays, relax and focus on having fun and celebrating with those around you. It’s the season of joy and remember – it’s not the ‘stuff’ you’ll cherish down the road, it’s the moments and the memories with the ones you love. Happy Holidays!
