A few Hippy Gourmet post-holiday recycling tips:
Compost those scraps folks! If you don't already have a compost pile, it's easy to set up!
It's estimated that over 33 million American homes will have real Christmas trees this year, and as much as we'd prefer keeping those trees in the ground and wish instead that people decorate a re-plant-able tree, or large indoor plant - the best we can hope for is to at least have the right way to recycle a tree.
Earth 911 provides a wonderful resource for finding the best local recycling zones for x-mas trees. Please go visit this link and simply discover the closest recycling resource to your home, so that we can hopefully keep millions of trees from being dumped in landfills.
There are also a lot of creative ways to recycle your old holiday greeting cards, with the easiest way being your regular paper recycling bin. That's why it's always best to support Green-facing paper companies whenever possible.
Have a great Holiday Season and New Year's, and we'll see you all on the other side of 2007!
