You can have a Green Christmas it is easy:
Lets think about how we can give back with out creating a lot of trash in the gift or how the family will use the gift. Mason Jars are a great way to give many different gifts. I am working on my homemade gifts and here is my list:
1-Cloth Christmas Napkin
1-Box or basket - reuseable
3-Plastic reusable containers
2-Mason Jars-your size your choice:add a little scrape cloth under the lid to add color
My list of Homemade everything
Instant Spice Tea -
Instant Hot Chocolate
Traditional -Chex Mix
Homemade Christmas Card-last years gift wrap
Also, How many sets of christmas dishes do you have. I have two sets, in the past I might get them out, but sometimes I would just buy the paper plates, But not anylonger. I get them out, my family loves them,., One of my sets is very casuel, so I get them
out right after Thangsiving and put in the cabinet and use them everyday, It really helps get everyone ready for the Christmas season .
Also you always share the extra sets to help another family.
Use only giftatable gift wrapping: this is hard, I know I like pretty gifts also, So I try and use wrapping products I can reuse in some way, Making card for next year or use as packing the next year.
Nice reusable gift bags, and thisyear for my dad. his main gift is going into a new ice chest.
Have a GREEN Christmas and please remember the True reason is CHRIST not gifts.
