Green Tips for the Holidays

Author GreatDad Writers
Submitted 19-03-2009

The Holiday Season is upon us! It’s a time when families and friends get together to enjoy tasty treats and exchange gifts. Here are some green tips to help you get through this season:

  • With all the gatherings and parties going on, cleaning is a big concern. Here is a link to a very practical 4-minute video that demonstrates inexpensive non-toxic household cleaning practices.
Made by Jeanne McLaughlin, a graduate of the Institute for Bau-Biologie in Florida.

  • If you are seeking BPA- phthlate- and lead-free gifts, check out GoodGuide.com, a BETA-version website being developed to rank “safe, healthy & green” toys and personal care products: http://www.goodguide.com/  

  • For San Francisco residents only:
When it’s time to purge the big stuff that cannot be reused or recycled, San Francisco residents can call SF Recycling / Sunset Scavenger. They offer to collect up to 10 bulky items for free, twice a year. Broken furniture, appliances, old TVs — check their website for what’s allowed, or give them a call at 415 331-1300 for details.
