I use an artificial tree.
Answer: the most eco-friendly choice is using a living, potted tree or not using a tree at all. The next best choice is cutting a local tree and composting in the yard debris cart or taking it to a group that collects them it. Just be sure it's free of tinsel, ornaments and lights.

I don't decorate at all.
Answer: While not decorating at all does reduce waste, it doesn't add much cheer. Reusing holiday decor is a great choice. If you still feel the need to purchase more, shop thrift stores or try making something from materials you already have.

A phone call instead.
Answer: An estimated 2.6 billion holiday cards are sold each year in the United States, enough to fill a football field 10 stories high. E-greetings or a phone call is a great way to connect with loved ones during the holidays. Choosing cards printed on recycled paper or created from old cards is a good runner up, but try to avoid foil lined envelopes and cards since they cannot be recycled.

I only use solar or LED lights on timers (or at certain times of the day).
Answer: If you are going to use lights, LED or solar lights are cost effective and provide energy savings. LED lights use 50% less energy than their incandescent predecessors, and they last up to 10 times longer as well. Solar lights don't cost anything to operate and no extension cords are needed. Timers are also a good choice so energy is not wasted when you are sleeping or at work. LED, solar, and incandescent lights can be recycled at the transfer station.

I like to use reuse paper or fabric.
Answer: Half of the paper America consumes is used to wrap and decorate consumer products. You can help reduce that waste by reusing ribbons and gift bags or wrapping gifts in newsprint or fabric. Also stay away from foil giftwrap and ribbons since they cannot be recycled.

Bubble wrap or styrofoam peanuts can be reused and shipping stores reuse them as well.
