Trying to cut down on spending this holiday season? Why not try something different that can also help save the environment. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has released a list of fun, environmentally friendly gift ideas and tips for the holiday season. Consumers can find Energy Star, Design for the Environment and Watersense labels on products to save energy, cut the costs of bills and most importantly, keep our environment protected.
When holiday shopping gets hectic, think of the simple ways we can relieve our stress and reduce our environmental impact: bringing cloth bags to save on paper and plastic, using recycled gift wrap, reusing old electronics, and using LED lights that require less energy. Take a look at the EPA website to see how these products can benefit your home and the environment.
