As Thanksgiving swiftly approaches, the store aisles are overflowing with cute decorations to put your home in the mood for the holiday. Instead of spending your hard earned money on decorations (many which are “disposable” and made of plastic, which is non-biodegradable,) why not use your creativity to decorate your home in an eco-friendly manner?
Unless you’ve enrolled in a university that boasts its dedication to preserving the environment and features LEED certified buildings, then chances of you living in a sustainable door room for the next four years will be slim.

‘Tis the season to be jolly and nothing makes us jollier than taking care of the earth, right? This holiday season when you decorate your home, stop and consider how your home decorations are effecting the environment. A good place to start is the centerpiece of most homes during the holidays: the Christmas tree (or Yule tree, or holiday tree, or whatever you choose to call it.)
