The holidays are here, the air is feeling brisk, and families and friends are enjoying festivities amongst annual traditions right here in the City of Long Beach. While this season has so much cheer and joy to be experienced, there are sadly some holiday traditions that could impact our environment in negative ways.
According to Sustainable America, “added food waste, shopping bags, packaging, wrapping paper, bows and ribbons add up to an additional 1 million tons a week going into our landfills.”
This amongst other holiday waste facts can show how some seasonal practices may not be as helpful when it comes to sustainability and helping the environment. However, things like using reusable bags or recyclable materials to wrap presents can make huge improvements.
