Day 247 of our Green Year: Recycling Everything On Christmas

Merry Christmas everyone! This is a busy day for us so this post will be a short one.

After the presents are open and everyone is coming off that Christmas high, it is time to start cleaning up the mess from everything. At our ranch, we are making sure that everything is being re-used by us so that we do not waste anything.

First, everything was wrapped in reusable bags or in newspaper. The bags will be used again, the newspapers will be used to start fires in the fireplace.

Second, all cardboard boxes that gifts may have come in will be recycled or stored so they can be reused again.

Third, all plastic and any other pieces that are part of the gifts packaging (as little as we made sure there would be), will be recycled in the best way that we can find.

That is all there really is to making sure you can be green on Christmas. Recycling and reusing everything that the gifts came in, so that all you are left with is the gifts, and the memories of Christmas.
