Make memories, not garbage, this Christmas
December 11, 2011
A trash-free holiday
For most of us, Christmas is a wonderful time for family, friends and gifting. But unfortunately, there’s also a downside to Christmas: junk that’s often in the landfill by Easter, and the biggest pickup day of the year for the trash man. So this year, why not give the trash man – and your planet – a break?
The Clean Bin Project is a wonderful initiative by three young Canadians to try to produce zero trash for a year. Their website has many litterless gift ideas for the holidays, such as:
- Tickets to a theatre, music performance or movie
- Passes to a gym or museum
- Outdoor experiences such as snowshoeing or horseback riding
- Massages or other health and wellness experiences
- House cleaning services
- Homemade consumables
- Secondhand items
