Green your holidays

Earth911.com and the U.S. Postal Service have partnered to share an important message: Don’t take a holiday from recycling.

Waste output can increase as much as 25 percent during the holidays. Earth911.com and the USPS are presenting the “Green Your Holidays” channel, with simple, practical tips to make sure you don’t contribute to that statistic.

The Green Your Holidays channel shows how to reduce, reuse and recycle key products associated with the holidays, including Christmas trees, gift packaging, greeting cards and holiday lights. It also provides the opportunity for consumers to search more than 100,000 locations in the U.S. and Canada that recycle these products, and features guides to make holiday-related activities like parties and shopping more eco-friendly.

The USPS will be contributing valuable content about recycled content packaging, greening your mail and holiday cards, and insights on avoiding lines during the busiest times for the Postal Service. For more, visit http://earth911.com/seasonal/green-your-holidays/
