[GreenYes] No-Waste Holiday Ideas (a/k/a understanding your waste likely ends up in a low-income community of color - it's time to reduce 101)
[Apologies for cross-postings]


Greetings - Waste Prevention Holiday Ideas - great for Ramadan, Hanakah,
Yule, Winter Solstice, Christmas, Kwanzaa, Western New Years, MLK Day &
Lunar New Years (Hope I got all of the holidays within the two-month or so
season without missing any particular religeous, cultural or ethnic groups
that may read this - apologies for spelling choices if anyone has other
preferences).
