Here we go with a second edition of our 15 Days of Green Christmas. This December I will be sharing simple ways to connect with family, craft and make lovely gifts, ways to giveback to your community and simple ways to celebrate the holidays in eco-friendly ways.
When I dream of a green Christmas, or and eco friendly Christmas, I dream of embracing nature, spending time with my family, slowing down and having fun together. Starting on December 4th, I hope to bring you inspiring ideas…like the ideas we shared during last years’ 15 Days of Green Christmas.
Before we jump into this 2nd edition, I thought we should take a moment to look back at my favourite top 10 Awesome Eco Friendly Crafts and Activities from last holiday season.
