How Green are Your Holiday Lights?

I have a modest ‘Charlie Brown’ esque tree this year.  It’s not the most impressive fern but it’s enough to make it feel like the holidays are here.

If you don’t mind sacrificing a little size a small tree can be a great choice because you use less lights … meaning less energy.

Another good way to green your holiday lights is to use LED.  There’s even some solar-powered lights on the market.

And, of course don’t forget to unplug your tree or decorative lights when you’re not home.

 Happy holidays GPB readers!

  1. My house is pretty green for the holidays. I bought a 13-inch potted “tree” which we can keep all year and we did not put up any lights.
