The holidays can make even the most eco-friendly people struggle to keep the season green. There are issues like real tree or fake tree? What do you do with all the wrapping paper? How do you wrap your gifts? What do you give to people that they will enjoy but won’t hurt the planet? The list goes on and on. Thankfully this carnival has many great ideas for having a greener holiday season. Be sure to check out the posts and leave your comments.
