EPA: Give Gift Cards for Christmas Presents to Save the Environment

-

The Environmental Protection Agency is asking Americans to consider giving gift cards for Christmas presents this year to save the environment.

In its tips to “Reduce Waste for Greener Holidays,” the agency instructed readers to think about how much wrapping paper they use.

“Friends, family, parties, and travel are what make the holiday season great,” the agency said. “You can make it even better by reducing waste as often as possible during your celebrations.”

“The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) wants to help make your holidays as green as they can be with these tips for reducing waste and conserving resources,” they said.

One tip suggested giving gift cards, often seen as an impersonal present, in order to reduce your carbon footprint.
