The holiday shopping madness is about to kick into high gear in a little under two weeks from now.
Get ready for crowded malls, no parking spots and long checkout lines!
How many of you want to avoid the whole situation all together? If you do, you have company. There is a growing movement among retailers across the country to say no to “Black Friday” this year.
Companies such as Gamestop, Staples, Ikea, and REI will be closed the day after Thanksgiving.
Not only is this the right thing to do, it is also better for our environment.
Did you know that “Black Friday” is 50 times more carbon intensive than its online equivalent “Cyber Monday”?
This is an shocking statistic when you consider that this is only one day out of the year!
As a consumer what can you do to reduce your carbon footprint this holiday season?
Recycle Old Carpet and Mattresses
If you are looking for a new carpet or mattress this holiday season making sure that your old one gets recycled is a gift to the planet and to future generations!
Did you know that the more that we recycle, the more our CO2 levels drop?
Also did you know that 90% of your mattress is recyclable but only 5% of mattresses are recycled annually?
When it comes to carpet, the statistics are not that great either. We discard nearly 3.9 million tons of carpets and rugs every year, yet we only recycle 7.5%!
This is disappointing because nylon is the most popular carpet fiber in the United States and is 100% recyclable.
Keeping these household items out of the landfill is easy and will help reduce carbon emissions.
Finding a local recycler is a quick Google search away!

Use Less Electricity By Going Outside
Did you know that the average American home uses 30 kWh of electricity a day?
Reducing your home’s carbon footprint is as easy as going outside! The more time that you spend outdoors, the less electricity you will use from carbon emitting power plants.
Not only does being outdoors lower your carbon footprint and reduce your utility bill, it also provides fantastic health benefits such as improved focus and a strengthened immune system!
Making your holiday season a little greener this year will help you, your loved ones and the environment stay healthy for years to come!
