Are you ready to celebrate a Waste Free Holiday?
How are you wrapping your presents this Christmas? With Saturday comics that are recyclable or with traditional wrapping paper that isn’t? What types of gifts are you giving? Ones that end up in landfill in the future because you gave things that were neither needed nor wanted or are you giving ones that create lasting memories such as piano lessons or skating lessons or maybe a special time spent with yourself?
We cannot truly celebrate any occasion if in the process we contribute to trashing the planet. Now is the time to rethink our behaviours and our relationship with the environment. Now is the time to set an example for the younger generation and show them that there is hope if we all take action to protect the environment. For it is by having a healthy environment that we ourselves are able to be healthy.
Wishing everyone a happy, healthy and waste free 2014.
