Cool Campaign Holiday Challenge

Did you know that 25% more waste is generated during the holiday season than at any other time during the year?

During the traditional holiday season, many of us are too busy decorating, shopping and celebrating to think of much else. It's a time to give thanks and slow down, if you can, but it's also a good time to learn how to have a greener holiday.
