Sustainability and Christmas don't necessarily go hand in hand, so I was delighted to find this inspiring book for making Christmas a greener holiday in more ways than one. If you only do the 10 things listed in the introduction, you will be miles ahead in saving energy and reducing waste during the holidays, but after seeing some of the luscious photos, I'm guessing you won't stop there. The chapters hold a treasure trove of ideas to create a more personal and meaningful Christmas that's gentle on our planet: creating a nature garland with what's on hand, stringing chandelier gems on found branches, transforming t-shirts into beautiful potholders, and reusing humble teabags to create surprisingly beautiful ornaments. Many of the ideas are not only eco-friendly but budget-friendly, like choosing LED lights, finding alternatives to gift wrap, and creating snowflakes from colorful newspaper flyers. Tips from eco experts, mouth-watering recipes, a resource directory, and much more will help you create a memorable holiday that uses less and means more.
