5 simple things to help the planet during the holidays

1. Replace conventional tree lights with energy efficient LED lights. We would save enough energy to heat 200,000 homes for a year if everyone did.

2. When shopping, say no to a different bag for each purchase and keep everything in the first bag you receive.

3. Wrap gifts in old maps, newspapers, Sunday comics, and kids' artwork.

4. Turn down the heat before the guests arrive. You'll save energy while the extra body heat of your guests will warm up the room.

5. If your buying batteries for your gifts, make sure they are rechargeable.
